China News Service, Guiyang, July 13 (Reporter Zhang Wei) The 2021 Guiyang International Forum on Ecological Civilization was held in Guiyang from the 12th to the 13th online and offline.
At the "Green and Clean Energy" forum hosted by the People's Government of Guizhou Province and Huazhong University of Science and Technology, participants from all walks of life at home and abroad gathered together to explore the energy transition under the goal of "carbon peak and carbon neutrality" from a global perspective and national height. Road to development.
At the "Green and Clean Energy" forum, the participating parties signed six projects with a total contract value of 108.2 billion yuan (RMB). Among them, the Guizhou Provincial Energy Bureau signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Guangdong Energy Group Co., Ltd., and the Guiyang Economic and Technological Development Zone Management Committee Will sign a hydrogen energy industrial park demonstration project investment agreement with Dongfang Electric Group Dongfang Boiler Co., Ltd., signed by the Guiyang Economic and Technological Development Zone Management Committee, German HEE Technology Co., Ltd., Guizhou Gas Group Co., Ltd., and Guizhou Sea Silk Road International Investment Co., Ltd. Sino-German hydrogen energy technology cooperation and fuel cell manufacturing project cooperation agreement.
Zhang Jianhua, director of the National Energy Administration of China, said in a video speech that energy is the foundation and driving force for the progress of human civilization. It has become a global consensus regarding national economy, people's livelihood and national security to jointly address climate change and promote energy reform.
In recent years, China has fully implemented the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, has taken the lead in making international energy transition development commitments, and has implemented an ecologically first, green and low-carbon development path.
As of the end of 2020, China's installed renewable energy capacity reached 935 million kilowatts, accounting for 1/3 of the global total installed capacity of renewable energy.
Hydropower, wind power, photovoltaics, and the scale of grid-connected installed capacity of bio-based power generation rank first in the world.
In 2020, China's carbon emission intensity dropped by 48.4% compared with 2005, fulfilling China's international commitments one year ahead of schedule.
Zhang Jianhua said that in the era of economic globalization, the energy development of various countries is interrelated and affects each other. The world should join hands to promote the green and clean development of global energy.
China is a practitioner of promoting energy transition, a leader in promoting energy reform, and a contributor to strengthening international energy governance.
Looking to the future, China will continue to improve the renewable energy support policy, accelerate the construction of a new power system with new energy as the mainstay, create a social environment conducive to the development of renewable energy, vigorously promote green energy use models, and strengthen the research and development of clean and low-carbon technologies. Innovative application, leaving a production and living environment with blue sky, green ground and clear water for future generations.
The British Minister of Energy Kwasi Kwarteng said that the next ten years will be a moment of success for the planet. Our most powerful approach is to end our dependence on coal and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Take the United Kingdom as an example. Decarbonization of the energy system provides huge opportunities for economic growth. Since 1990, the British economy has grown by 78%, while emissions have been reduced by 44%. This shows that green development and growth can go hand in hand.
"Tackling climate change requires all-round cooperation, which includes supporting the global acceleration of the transition to clean energy to meet the changing energy landscape." Kwasi Kwarteng expressed the hope that the UK and China will continue to carry out strong and mutually beneficial cooperation.
Through bilateral contacts and multilateral platforms, new opportunities for energy and green investment will be opened in the global transformation revolution.
Guizhou, where the forum is held, ranks the 5th in China in terms of coal reserves, and is known as the "Jiangnan Coal Sea".
Hydropower resources rank 6th in China.
Coalbed methane and shale gas resources rank 4th in China.
The economic and technological development of solar energy and wind energy reaches 50 million kilowatts and 28 million kilowatts respectively.
The energy industry has become an important pillar industry in Guizhou. At the end of 2020, the installed power capacity of Guizhou province will be nearly 75 million kilowatts. Among them, the installed capacity of green and clean energy such as water, wind, and light accounted for more than 50%. The new energy industry is booming, 2019, 2020 In 2012, Guizhou became the province with the largest scale, fastest construction speed, and highest grid connection rate in China's photovoltaic bidding projects for two consecutive years.
Tao Changhai, Vice Governor of Guizhou Province, said that Guizhou is rich in energy resources and is an important energy base and resource deep processing base in China.
During the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, Guizhou will prioritize ecology and promote green development, focus on improving the green and clean energy supply system, accelerate the construction of a green and clean energy consumption mechanism, consolidate and strengthen the foundation for green and clean energy development, and strengthen and optimize the modern energy industry .
