Chinanews.com, September 16th. The National Development and Reform Commission website recently published a notice on the "Improving the Dual Control System of Energy Consumption Intensity and Total Quantity" (hereinafter referred to as the notice).

The notice pointed out that it is necessary to resolutely control high-energy-consuming and high-emission projects.

  The notice pointed out that the implementation of dual control of energy consumption intensity and total amount (hereinafter referred to as dual control of energy consumption) is an important institutional arrangement to implement the requirements of ecological civilization construction, promote energy conservation and consumption reduction, and promote high-quality development.

Since the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan", various regions and departments have conscientiously implemented the decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, and achieved positive results in the dual control of energy consumption. However, there are also lack of flexibility in the management of total energy consumption and lack of differentiated management measures for dual control of energy consumption. And other issues.

  The notice clarified the overall goal: by 2025, the dual control system of energy consumption will be more complete, the allocation of energy resources will be more reasonable, and the utilization efficiency will be greatly improved.

By 2030, the dual control system for energy consumption will be further improved, the intensity of energy consumption will continue to drop significantly, the total energy consumption will be reasonably controlled, and the energy structure will be more optimized.

By 2035, the optimal allocation of energy resources and the overall conservation system will be more mature and finalized, which will strongly support the achievement of the goal of steady and steady reduction of carbon emissions after reaching the peak.

  The notice requires the improvement of the index setting and the decomposition and implementation mechanism, which mainly includes two aspects.

The first is to reasonably set national and local energy consumption dual control indicators.

Improve the management of energy consumption dual control indicators. The state will continue to make the reduction of energy consumption intensity a binding indicator in the five-year plan for national economic and social development, reasonably set the total energy consumption indicators, and disaggregate and issue the dual energy consumption indicators to all provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities). Control the five-year goal.

  The state implements dual-objective management for the reduction of energy consumption intensity in various provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities). The basic goal is the binding goal that each region must ensure to complete, and the incentive goal is set by a certain range beyond the basic goal.

At the national level, a certain amount of indicators is reserved to coordinate and support the energy demand of major national projects and the development of renewable energy.

All provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) determine the annual targets based on the five-year targets set by the state and the actual conditions of their regions and report them to the National Development and Reform Commission for the record.

The National Development and Reform Commission has strengthened the window guidance for local annual targets and tasks in accordance with the decline in energy consumption intensity across the country and in various regions.

  The second is to optimize the decomposing and implementation of dual control indicators for energy consumption.

Take the energy output rate as an important basis, comprehensively integrate the economic and social development level, development positioning, industrial structure and layout of each region, energy consumption status, energy saving potential, energy resource endowment, environmental quality, energy infrastructure construction and planning layout, previous Factors such as the completion of the five-year plan targets, and rationally determine the energy consumption intensity reduction and total energy consumption targets of all provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities).

In the decomposition of the total energy consumption target, a moderate preference is given to regions with higher energy use efficiency and rapid development.

  The notice calls for enhancing the flexibility of total energy consumption management, mainly in five aspects.

The first is to implement overall energy consumption planning for major national projects.

Relevant major projects approved by the Party Central Committee and the State Council and put into production in the current period of the five-year plan, after comprehensive consideration of the national energy dual control target, and reported to the State Council for the record, are in the annual and five-year plan current energy dual control assessment Reduce or exempt the energy consumption of the project.

  The second is to resolutely manage and control high-energy-consumption and high-emission projects.

All provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) should establish a list of high energy-consuming and high-emission projects (hereinafter referred to as "two high" projects) under construction, proposed, and stocks, clarify disposal opinions, and submit adjustments to the National Development and Reform Commission in a timely manner.

For the “two highs” projects with an additional energy consumption of 50,000 tons of standard coal and above, the National Development and Reform Commission and relevant departments have strengthened window guidance in accordance with the requirements of energy efficiency, environmental protection requirements, industrial policies, and related planning; 5 For the "two highs" projects under 10,000 tons of standard coal, each region will strengthen management and strictly control the energy consumption and dual control objectives and tasks.

For the "two highs" projects that do not meet the requirements, all regions must strictly control the entry of energy conservation review, environmental assessment and approval, and financial institutions are not allowed to provide credit support.

  The third is to encourage local governments to increase the consumption of renewable energy.

According to various provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) renewable energy power consumption and green power certificate transactions, etc., areas that have exceeded the incentive renewable energy power consumption responsibility weight, and the consumption that exceeds the minimum renewable energy power consumption responsibility weight The amount is not included in the assessment of the current total energy consumption of the region’s annual and five-year plans.

  The fourth is to encourage local governments to exceed their energy consumption intensity reduction targets.

For provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities directly under the Central Government) that have reduced their energy intensity and reached the national incentive target, their total energy consumption will be exempted from the assessment of the current energy consumption dual control assessment of the five-year plan.

  Fifth, promote market-based trading of energy consumption indicators.

Further improve the system of paid use and trading of energy rights, accelerate the construction of a national energy rights trading market, and promote the flow and agglomeration of energy elements to high-quality projects, enterprises, industries, and regions with good economic development conditions.

Establish a cross-regional trading mechanism for total energy consumption indicators. Provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities) that have insufficient total indicators and need new layouts that meet the requirements of national industrial policies, energy conservation and environmental protection, etc., ensure that the basic goal of reducing energy intensity is achieved, The total amount indicators can be purchased from provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities directly under the Central Government) where the reduction of energy consumption intensity is progressing smoothly and the total indicators are surplus.

  The notice is clear, and the dual control management system for energy consumption will be improved.

First, promote local implementation of energy budget management.

All provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) should establish an energy budget management system, formulate energy budget management plans, and give priority to energy factors to protect residents in light of the economic and social development of the region, the industrial structure and energy structure, the layout of major projects, and the space for energy use. Living, modern service industries, high-tech industries, and advanced manufacturing industries should control fossil energy consumption in accordance with local conditions and industries, accelerate the adjustment and optimization of industrial structure and energy structure, and reflect the requirements for high-quality development.

  It is possible to explore and carry out energy consumption output benefit evaluation, formulate regional, industry, and enterprise unit energy output benefit evaluation indicators and standards, promote energy factors to tilt toward industries and projects with high unit energy output efficiency, and guide the optimization of industrial layout.

Encourage all regions in accordance with laws and regulations to free up space for energy use by eliminating inferiority and improving energy consumption by reducing energy consumption and other methods, including the unified management of energy budgets in the region, and coordinating and supporting the new energy demand of key projects in the region.

Guide residents to form an energy-saving lifestyle, use high-efficiency energy-saving products, and reduce energy waste.

It is strictly forbidden to engage in "two highs" projects and production and operation activities with excess capacity under the banner of residential electricity consumption.

All provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) combined with the promotion of dual energy consumption control work, and implemented dynamic adjustments to their regional energy budget management plans.

  Second, strictly implement the energy-saving review system.

All provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) should effectively strengthen the energy-saving review of projects with large energy consumption, especially fossil energy consumption, and do a good job in linking up with the energy consumption dual control goals of the region, and strictly control the energy efficiency level of new projects from the source. New high-energy-consuming projects must comply with national industrial policies and have energy efficiency reaching the advanced level of the industry.

Areas that have not reached the basic goal of reducing energy consumption intensity are required to postpone the approval of high-energy-consuming projects during energy-saving review and other links. New high-energy-consuming projects must be replaced by equivalent reductions in energy consumption.

Deepen the reform of the energy-saving review system, strengthen the supervision during and after the energy-saving review, strengthen energy-saving management services, and implement closed-loop management.

  Third, improve the energy consumption dual control assessment system.

Increase energy consumption intensity and reduce indicator assessment weights, reasonably set assessment weights for total energy consumption indicators, study assessment indicators for controlling fossil energy consumption, and use high-quality allocation of energy elements in various provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities), and in-depth exploration of energy-saving potential. Important assessment content.

For regions that have completed the current dual energy consumption control schedule goal of the five-year plan, it can be regarded as the completion of the annual energy dual control goal.

Strengthen the application of the assessment results. After the assessment results are approved by the State Council, they will be handed over to the cadre management department as an important basis for the comprehensive assessment and evaluation of the leading groups and leading cadres of the provincial people's government.

Areas where the assessment result is overfulfilled will be reported and given certain rewards; areas that have not completed the basic goal of reducing energy intensity will be notified and criticized, and rectification will be required within a time limit; for areas that are seriously lagging behind and work poorly, the relevant authorities will deal with them in accordance with regulations. Relevant persons in charge shall be accountable.

  In terms of organization and implementation, the notice stated to strengthen organizational leadership.

All regions and departments should fully understand the significance of dual energy consumption control to promote high-quality development, coordinate and handle the relationship between economic and social development and dual energy consumption control, and resolutely curb the blind development of "two highs" projects.

The provincial people's government is responsible for the dual control of energy consumption in its administrative area, formulates work plans, organizes the implementation, and implements the goals and tasks of dual control of energy consumption issued by the state.

  Relevant departments of the State Council must coordinate with the National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration when formulating industrial plans with high demand for new energy use and the construction of major projects, and strengthen coordination with the dual control policy of energy consumption to form a policy synergy; national statistics The bureau, in conjunction with the National Energy Administration, will do a good job in the statistics of non-fossil energy consumption across the country, and guide all provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) to improve non-fossil energy consumption statistics.
