Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

We have acted as counsel
to China Recycling Energy Corporation (the “Company”) in connection with the offer and sale by the Company of
up to 2,359,272 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”) pursuant to a Securities Purchase
Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain purchasers identified on the signature pages thereto.  The
Shares are being offered for sale pursuant to the Company’s registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-221868)
(the “Registration Statement”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”)
pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and the rules and regulations
promulgated thereunder, the prospectus, dated December 1, 2017 (the “Prospectus”), and the Prospectus Supplement
filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act, dated April 15, 2019 (the Prospectus Supplement).

 

In
connection with this opinion, we have examined the Purchase Agreement, the Registration Statement, the Prospectus and the Prospectus
Supplement. In addition, we have reviewed such corporate records and documents and made such examination of law as we have deemed
appropriate to give the opinion expressed below. In making all of our examinations, we assumed
the genuineness of all signatures, the authority of the persons who executed such documents, the authenticity of all documents
submitted to us as originals, the conformity to the original documents of all documents submitted to us as copies, and the due
execution and delivery of all documents by any persons or entities where due execution and delivery by such persons or entities
is a prerequisite to the effectiveness of such documents. As to various factual matters that are material to our opinion letter,
we have relied upon certificates of public officials and certificates, resolutions, documents, statements and other information
of the Company or its representatives. We have not independently verified or investigated, nor do we assume any responsibility
for, the factual accuracy or completeness of such factual statements.

 

Our
opinion is limited to applicable statutory provisions of
Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (the “NRS”)
and federal laws of the United States of America to the extent referred to specifically herein.  
We are generally familiar with the NRS as currently in effect and have made such inquiries and review of matters of fact and law
as we determined necessary to render the opinions contained herein. We assume no obligation to revise or supplement this opinion
letter in the event of future changes in such laws or the interpretations thereof or such facts.  We express no other
opinion regarding the Securities Act, or any other federal or state laws or regulations.

 

Based on the foregoing,
and subject to the assumptions, limitations and qualifications set forth herein, we are of the opinion that, upon the issuance
and sale of the Shares in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, and as described in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus
and the Prospectus Supplement, the Shares will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

 

No
opinion may be implied or inferred beyond the opinions expressly stated in the paragraph immediately above.  Our opinion expressed
herein is as of the date hereof, and we undertake no obligation to advise you of any changes in applicable law or any other matters
that may come to our attention after the date hereof that may affect our opinions expressed herein.

 

We
consent to the filing of this opinion letter as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K and to the inclusion of this opinion
as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and to the references to our firm under the caption “Legal Matters” in
the Prospectus Supplement. In giving our consent, we do not admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is
required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder.  

 

Sincerely,

 

/s/ Garvey Schubert Barer, P.C.
