China Daily (Hong Kong) - - ADVERTORIAL -

North China’s Shanxi prov­ince will host the Taiyuan En­ergy Low-Car­bon De­vel­op­ment Fo­rum from Sun­day to Tues­day, aim­ing to fur­ther dis­play the re­gion’s new im­age and help ex­pand its open­ness and co­op­er­a­tion in the en­ergy field.

More than 500 peo­ple will at­tend the fo­rum, in­clud­ing guests from re­lated UN or­ga­ni­za­tions, in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions in the en­ergy field and en­ergy-re­lated For­tune Global 500 en­ter­prises.

The fo­rum will com­prise a sum­mit fo­rum, six sub-fo­rums and one in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion con­fer­ence. The sub-fo­rums will dis­cuss top­ics such as pro­mo­tion and ap­pli­ca­tion of new en­ergy tech­nol­ogy and com­pa­nies’ roles in pro­mot­ing en­ergy re­form.

The prov­ince is a na­tional en­ergy cen­ter and em­pha­sizes en­ergy-re­lated de­vel­op­ment, ac­cord­ing to local of­fi­cials. A gas group was founded on March 20, sig­ni­fy­ing the be­gin­ning of the in­te­gra­tion and re­com­bi­na­tion of gas re­sources across the prov­ince.

Shanxi Jincheng An­thracite Min­ing Group, which owns the gas group, has taken on the task of in­te­grat­ing and de­vel­op­ing the whole prov­ince’s gas in­dus­try, as well as ac­tively ex­plor­ing the clean and ef­fi­cient use of coal and pro­mot­ing the low-car­bon con­ver­sion of coal.

The coal chem­i­cal com­pany said it has de­vel­oped fine chem­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing and new-type fer­til­izer projects in re­cent years and ad­justed its in­dus­trial struc­ture to shift coal from fuel to raw ma­te­ri­als.

Mov­ing in the green di­rec­tion, Shanxi has pro­moted new-en­ergy projects fo­cus­ing on wind elec­tric­ity and pho­to­voltaic. Local of­fi­cials said the prov­ince’s wind power and pho­to­voltaic in­stalled ca­pac­i­ties have de­vel­oped rapidly in re­cent years and three cities — Da­tong, Shuozhou and Xinzhou, which abound in wind and light re­sources — have seen their new en­ergy in­stalled ca­pac­i­ties ex­ceed the an­nual tar­gets.
