Industry is a key sector in achieving carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals.

The carbon peaking action in the industrial sector is one of the top ten carbon peaking actions.

The National Industrial and Informatization Work Conference requires that the carbon peaking action in the industrial sector should be implemented in 2022, and the green and low-carbon transformation of the industry should be steadily promoted.

  The Industrial Internet is a new type of infrastructure and key common technology to achieve dual carbon.

At present, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation is accelerating, the industrial Internet, big data, and 5G emerging technologies are deeply integrated with green and low-carbon industries, and the green manufacturing system and service system are constantly improving, accelerating the promotion of low-carbon process innovation and digital transformation in the industrial field. .

As a new type of infrastructure

, the Industrial Internet is a new industrial ecology, key technology support and new infrastructure that is deeply integrated with the new generation of information and communication technology and industrial economy. Through the construction of four functional systems of network, platform, data and security, it promotes heterogeneous data collection , aggregation and modeling analysis, promote the release of data element value, and realize the optimized allocation of element resources in a wider range, higher efficiency and more accurate.

In the four years since the implementation of the industrial Internet innovation and development strategy, my country's industrial Internet has achieved a series of phased and iconic achievements, providing the necessary basic conditions for realizing the dual-carbon goal.

As a key common technology

, the Industrial Internet integrates digital technologies such as 5G, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, and blockchain to connect the cloud, network, edge, and end, and accelerate the convergence of communication technology, information technology, and control technology. Comprehensive breakthroughs and iterative innovations in related technologies can improve the collection, aggregation and analysis capabilities of energy and energy consumption data.

The Industrial Internet combines digital technology with industry-specific knowledge, experience, and needs to accelerate the convergence and precipitation of industrial mechanism models, giving birth to platform-based design, intelligent manufacturing, networked collaboration, personalized customization, service-based extension, and digital management. A new model to promote cost reduction, quality improvement, efficiency enhancement, green and safe development of the real economy.

  "Industrial Internet + Double Carbon" has achieved remarkable results in the application of major industries.

Steel, chemical, building materials and other high-energy-consuming industries realize the digitization and transparency of key production process energy consumption, carbon emissions, Accommodate closed-loop supervision of the whole process.

In the iron and steel industry

, Tianjin Iron and Steel Group builds an ultra-low emission full-life-cycle information system through industrial Internet platform technology, and through the application of intelligent equipment, lean on-site management, and the in-depth integration of information technology and group business, the annual comprehensive power consumption per ton of steel, Water consumption decreased by 14.37% and 12.61% year-on-year, recovery of blast furnace gas and waste heat steam decreased by 8.9% and 4.62% year-on-year, and recovery of converter gas increased by 1.94% year-on-year. Emission Class A enterprise policy requirements.

In the chemical industry

, Sinopec, as a key enterprise in the "World-class Green and Low-Carbon Urban Refining and Chemical Demonstration Enterprise Construction Pilot", sinks into the enterprise through network slicing + MEC (edge ​​computing) + UPF (user plane function), forming a set of The overall solution for petrochemical enterprises based on the Industrial Internet, realizes power saving and emission reduction in multiple scenarios such as process optimization, material management, production scheduling, environmental monitoring, environmental risk analysis, steam power optimization, workshop electricity consumption, etc. Fuel consumption is projected to save 5% by 2030 and 14% by 2050.

In the building materials industry

, Conch Cement relies on "5G+Industrial Internet" to further improve the automation degree and energy consumption optimization capability of the existing system, and build a cement sintering and raw material grinding energy consumption optimization system (RTO) on top of the existing MPC system, and finally realize the The stable and low-consumption automatic driving of the kiln and grinding system helps Conch Cement save 400 million kWh of electricity, reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 747,700 tons, and reduce pollutant emissions by 30,000 tons. 90%, while the labor intensity of employees is reduced by 21%.

  The Industrial Internet has brought great help to the improvement of the production management level of enterprises.

At the same time, it should be noted that most of my country's industrial enterprises are at the development level of 2.0~3.0, especially the digitalization level of small and medium-sized enterprises is relatively low. More than 55% of enterprises have not completed the basic digital transformation of equipment, and it is urgent to improve energy consumption management and carbon emissions. Emission data collection, supervision level.

  "Industrial Internet + Dual Carbon" has effectively promoted the modernization of the government's governance system and governance capabilities.

Through the integration of production data, platforms and systems, a regional and industry-level "Industrial Internet + Dual-Carbon" supervision platform is built to realize the connection and supervision of production energy consumption, carbon emissions, carbon footprints, carbon quotas, carbon credits, and carbon sinks. It has the functions of monitoring, management, regulation, evaluation, etc., and enhances the linkage and joint control capability of cross-departmental and cross-level dual-carbon actions.

Shanghai Pudong

Smart Energy Dual-Carbon Cloud Platform fully integrates data from multiple system platforms such as electricity, water, gas, government, and society, and uses corporate energy carbon emissions, clean energy carbon emissions reductions, and transportation power to replace carbon emissions reductions and other energy carbon emissions. The emission data is the object of analysis, providing functions such as energy carbon monitoring, energy carbon assessment and energy carbon prediction for government departments, energy companies, and energy customers.

The "Dual-Carbon Intelligent Governance Platform" launched by the

Zhejiang Provincial

Relying on the industrial Internet, Wuxi, Jiangsu

will improve energy utilization efficiency, realize energy conservation and emission reduction through local consumption and interconnection, and build a distributed multi-energy complementary comprehensive energy system with sufficient energy supply, clean energy use and flexible resource allocation.

Only in Sin Chew Industrial Park Regional Energy Comprehensive Service Center, the operating cost is reduced by 21%, the operating efficiency is increased by 41%, and the annual energy consumption is saved by 9.73%.

  Double Carbon provides a broader world for the innovation and development of the Industrial Internet. "Industrial Internet + Double Carbon" is a long-term, systematic, and complex major project.
