the world's largest building powered by solar energy reduce energy consumption up to 88%

The world's largest building powered by solar power, is located in Shandong, China. The construction area of this building is 75,000 square meter.

Hot water supply, heating, cooling powered by solar energy, and photovoltaic power generation with electric grid are firstly applied in the building in the world.

Local governments and enterprises avoid the mandatory measure of energy saving & less carbon emission

The deadline of 11st Five-Year Plan in China is coming. Under heavy pressure of energy saving & carbon emissions, the shock waves of the Chinese government is roaring. Prior to this deadline, many areas in China, including Hebei Province, try to limit production by offering less electricity in order to save energy and reducecarbon emissions. Central government of China has continued to push them to complete the aim on time.

But these measures of Chinese government are not strictly executed now.

One person in charge of a steel mill say, now most of the steel mills are equipped with own power plant. The steel plant can make up power consumption through their own power plant. And from late September,the restrictions on steel mills for energy saving and less carbon emissions are not so strictly executed as before.

U.S. investigates subsidies of Chinese Clean Energy (green power)

According to a preliminary understanding of China, the subsidy of the United States itself in the energy sector, includig clean energy (green energy, alternative power) is up to 2,300 kinds. In fact, the United States and China last year reached a series of business agreements on clean energy (renewable power). The governments of two countries will focus on research and development of three major new business, including clean coal, carbon sequestration. So this investigation is surprising to China.

In the industry of green energy (renewable power, clean energy, alternative power), Chinese enterprises play an important role in the global market. For example, solar energy shipments of China accounted for half of the global solar power market.

ambitious targets of China for green & sustainable development

The most significant aspects of the 12th Five-Year Plan of China is the new target of energy efficiency, development of green energy (alternative power) and carbon emission reduction. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), China is the world's largest energy consumer. China now has a profound impact on these industries of solar, wind and nuclear energy, other alternative energy.

It's said that energy efficiency target will be the reduction 15-20% of energy intensity in the 12th Five-Year Plan of China.

Carbon emissions targets in China may be more ambitious. Officials have said that by 2020 40% or 45% reduction will be achieved in carbon emissions.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said that to achieve energy saving targets, even sacrificing GDP growth

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on September 13, 2010, attended the opening session of the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Summer Davos Forum, and participated the meeting with business representatives. At the meeting, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao answered the questions of President Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum and some entrepreneurs.

energy conservation & emission reduction

Some entrepreneurs asked that China earlier issued a series of policies and measures to achieve the goal of energy conservation. But in the first half of this year, the unit GDP energy consumption of China has not declined, even increased. It brings difficulty for China to achieve the targets of energy conservation and emission reduction of "Eleventh 5-year (2006 - 2010) Planning".

Ministry of Environmental Protection of China annouced new rules: listed companies to disclose environmental emergencies in 1 day (part 2)

this new rule on environmental protection on listed companies, will do something in eco-friendly and green. It will help to sustain the development of China economy sustainable. In the past several decades, the development of China economy is not sustainable, hurting the ecological environment, indirectly affecting the whole zoology and environment of the world. If this new rule of Ministry of Environmental Protection of China really works, that's good news to all of us, especially to Chinese. And China will get a better result for green development too.

environmental protection

However, one officer, who is in charge of environmental protection in China, said the new rule can't function well on environmental friendly. In one day the listed company where the occurrence of environmental emergencies exist, by objective factors, is almost impossible to release an interim environment report to the public. Environmental protection departments of each province in China, limited by the test equipment, can not detect some of the features of pollution during the unexpected environmental incidents too.
