[Explanation] June 5th is World Environment Day. On that day, the "Carbon Peak Carbon Neutralization Beijing Action High-end Forum" was held in Beijing.

At the forum, Ouyang Minggao, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a professor at the School of Vehicles and Transportation of Tsinghua University, suggested that Beijing should study and introduce a policy to ban the sale of fuel vehicles and gradually change all vehicle indicators to new energy vehicle indicators to promote carbon emissions reduction.

  [Explanation] In September 2020, China announced its efforts to reach the peak of carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.

Ouyang Minggao believes that as far as Beijing is concerned, the main areas of carbon emission reduction are transportation, power and construction.

  The main areas of carbon neutral and low-carbon development in Beijing are transportation, construction, and electricity. Therefore, we believe that the path of development should be the development of new energy transportation, new energy power, and new energy buildings. The integration of energy transportation and new energy buildings will ultimately solve our carbon emissions problem.

  [Explanation] According to statistics, at present, the number of new energy vehicles in Beijing is about 400,000, and it will reach 2 million at the end of the "14th Five-Year Plan" period.

Ouyang Minggao pointed out that under the premise of achieving low-carbon power systems, new energy vehicles, as a distributed energy storage device, will have a comprehensive effect on three aspects: transportation, electricity, and buildings.

  If our electricity has local photovoltaics plus wind power from other places, then our electricity in Beijing can be completely low-carbon, so that our electricity is low-carbon. If we have such a high proportion of solar or wind power, we must use Our electric car is a powerful energy storage device. Store it. Otherwise, it may fluctuate very sharply. In this way, our new energy power, new energy buildings, and new energy vehicles will form an ecosystem.

  [Explanation] Ouyang Minggao said that as long as new energy vehicles are scaled up, they can promote the development of new energy buildings and new energy power. Therefore, he suggested that Beijing study and introduce a comprehensive ban on the sale of fuel vehicles and gradually change all vehicle indicators to new ones. Energy vehicle indicators.

  Therefore, I suggest that we gradually change all vehicle indicators to new energy vehicle indicators, study and introduce a comprehensive ban on the sale of fuel vehicles, and introduce it early to guide everyone’s expectations, not temporarily, and implement it immediately. This may be a bit bad for everyone. accept.

  [Explanation] Ouyang Minggao pointed out that Beijing currently has a good foundation in the field of new energy vehicles and can take the lead in demonstrating and setting an example globally.
