On November 14, “Go Global” Training and Briefing on Investment in Clean Energy Industry, organized by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) was held in Shandong Weihai, Rongcheng. Rongcheng Deputy Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee and Mayor Zheng Yuewen attended the meeting and delivered key remarks.
China Europe Carbon Neutral delivered a speech about the “Contributions and Opportunities for Chinese companies in the EU electrification and decarbonization process.” The meeting was attended by over 120 guests plus over 2,000 people on line, including CCPIT officials, other relevant authorities, embassies and consulates, and a large number of companies representatives.
Mr. Zheng Yuewen, Rongcheng’s Mayor, in his speech underlined that Rongcheng will: “accelerate the creation of an “international energy valley” for green, low-carbon and high-quality development. In the next step, our city will use this event as an opportunity to further coordinate the promotion of high-level opening up and green, low-carbon and high-quality development, increase efforts to attract talents and investment, and build an industrial community of win-win cooperation.”
Mr. Li Xiang, CCPIT Deputy Director General in the Department of Industry Promotion, said in his speech: ” This training focused on the new trends in the development of the clean energy industry and invited well-known experts in the industry to focus on “Chinese enterprises ‘Go Global’ situation and policies”, and “overseas investment practical operations and Teaching topics such as “Sharing Successful Cases” will further stimulate the development vitality of small and medium-sized enterprises, empower the transformation and upgrading of the new energy industry, and provide useful reference for Chinese enterprises to “Go Global”. “
During the sharing about National Investment Policies and Investment Environment, Mr. Zhang Changcheng, Project Director of China Europe Carbon Neutral (CNEUCN), introduced the “Contributions and Opportunities for Chinese companies in the EU electrification and decarbonization process.”
Mr. Zhang mentioned in his speech: “China and Europe have long-term cooperation on issues related to addressing climate change, and have reached a solid agreement to further strengthen joint efforts. In recent months, China and Europe have had close exchanges, and many EU senior officials had missions to China. The arrival of high-level officials to China and the upcoming China – EU Summit, are clear evidence of European Union’s sincere willingness to continue an open and constructive dialogue with China.”
Furthermore he said: “Decarbonization is a key issue for deepening cooperation between China and Europe. Both have made formal commitments and set strict decarbonization targets. In the future, European companies’ demand for environmental protection equipment will continue to increase. Furthermore, the second five-year extension of the China-EU Circular Economy Memorandum of Understanding, it also indicates that China and Europe will cooperate more closely in the next few years. This also reflects the efforts of China and Europe to promote economic circulation to support global sustainability. A shared vision and interest in development and prosperity, i.e., a transition to a sustainable, efficient, circular economy, is necessary and possible. This will generate green technologies aimed at faster decarbonization while ensuring greater resource diversity and providing security of supply. Each partner economy will leverage its comparative advantage in new green technology supply chains. The aim is to complement, not replace, China’s supply chains, as both are needed to meet growing global (including China) demand for green technologies. In this transformation, the credibility and expertise of European companies to provide reliable, advanced and sustainable solutions will be highly aligned with market needs. This initiative will be highlighted in technical assistance, support for pilot testing of best practices, and will also create more new jobs and greater prosperity. “
Quoting the recent speech made by DG Energy Commissioner Simson at the North China Electric Power University Beijing on October 11th, she highlighted the great opportunities that European’s market offers: “We have a target to ensure that our netzero technologies manufacturing capacity reaches at least 40% of the Union’s annual deployment needs for corresponding technologies.
This means that at least 60% may come from outside Europe. For example, we have a target of 600 GW of solar PVby 2030, and we project that European producers will cover at best 30GW.
The much larger part will be provided by international markets. China, we all know, has by far the largest
manufacturing capacity in the world on PV.”
