China by far is building the most clean energy plants, The most efficent non fossil fuel devices and more of them.

They are also building more coal fired power generation,mining and buying more as well as gas and other fossil fuel use.

I wonder how an economic downturn in china would impact their power generation policy. Do they dial back the fossil fuel power or renewable power development?

If the downturn is in China alone, they could shift even more to export to compensate. There is more demand than supply worldwide of solar panels.

Even then, considering China wants to become more energy independent after their conflicts with Australia, I'd be surprised if they shifted too much into coal again.

China is in an economic downturn, and it has turned the country back towards coal power to some degree.
