The hottest low-carbon strategy in China needs to

  • Detail

China's low-carbon strategy needs to be integrated with European experience

low carbon economy is gradually becoming the development core of the post crisis era. The new economic development model represented by low-carbon economy will replace the development model of high energy consumption and lead the global economic recovery and sustainable development. Therefore, vigorously building a low-carbon model and developing a low-carbon economy has become the only way to accelerate the transformation of economic growth mode and seize the commanding heights of the world economy

at present, the Chinese government is implementing the low-carbon development strategy from the aspects of adjusting the energy structure, developing low-carbon energy, building low-carbon demonstration cities, implementing energy conservation and improving energy efficiency. Especially in the recent period, China has frequently made heavy blows. After the Ministry of industry and information technology announced the list of 2087 enterprises with backward production capacity to be eliminated, the national development and Reform Commission issued the notice on carrying out the pilot work of low-carbon in provinces and regions and low-carbon cities in the artificial leather, synthetic leather and composite flexible packaging film industry, and determined the first batch of low-carbon pilot projects. The analysis believes that this marks that China's economy will embark on a low-carbon road

as early as may this year, the State Council issued the "notice on further strengthening efforts to ensure the realization of the" Eleventh Five Year Plan "energy conservation and emission reduction goals". The notice calls for accelerating the implementation of key projects of energy conservation and emission reduction, allocating 33.3 billion yuan of investment in the central budget and 50 billion yuan of central financial funds, and focusing on supporting the construction of ten key energy conservation projects, the development of circular economy, the elimination of backward production capacity, urban sewage and garbage treatment, water pollution control in key river basins, and the construction of energy conservation and environmental protection capabilities

at the same time, in terms of credit and taxation, relevant departments have also imposed restrictions on overcapacity, backward production capacity and energy conservation and emission reduction control industries. Strategic emerging industries are beginning to be laid out, and the emerging energy plan is coming soon...

however, in sharp contrast to the booming low-carbon development boom, China needs at least 60 kinds of backbone technology support to achieve the goal of low-carbon industries in the future, of which 42 are core technologies that China does not currently master. Some experts suggested that China and the EU could choose win-win measures to expand low-carbon trade and investment by establishing a new market incentive mechanism to capture "carbon" and economic growth at the same time

Europe is the origin of low-carbon economy and has always been the leader of global low-carbon economy. Today, low-carbon economy has been written into the EU's future development strategic plan. In March, 2009, the European Union announced that it would invest 105billion euros to support the "green economy" of plastic granulators, which also causes serious environmental pollution, promote employment and economic growth, and maintain the world leading position of the European Union in the field of low-carbon industries. In October of that year, the European Commission also recommended that the EU increase € 50billion in the next 10 years for the development of "low-carbon technologies". The European Commission has also worked with the business community and researchers to formulate the EU's "road map" for the development of low-carbon technologies, and plans to vigorously develop low-carbon technologies in six areas with development potential, such as wind energy, solar energy, bioenergy, and carbon dioxide capture and storage

in March this year, the European Union released the first draft of the "Europe 2020 strategy" for the first time. According to the new strategy, the EU and its Member States will invest heavily in energy conservation and emission reduction, the development of clean energy, the development of high-tech industries, education and training, and cultivate low-carbon industries into future economic pillars

heshihong, chairman of the board of international financial services group (UFS), said that the low-carbon economy is the focus of the future global economy. Whether China can seize the commanding height of the low-carbon economy is closely related to whether it can well grasp the opportunity to develop the low-carbon economy. Meanwhile, cooperation with Europe, the global leader in low-carbon technology, is indispensable

in the development of low-carbon economy, there is a huge space for cooperation between Europe and China. Data show that both sides account for about 30% of the total global energy consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions account for about 30% of the total global emissions. China and the European Union are interdependent in energy and climate security, and their common interests also lead to broad cooperation space in the field of low-carbon industries. According to the European Ministry of Commerce, China's clean energy market will reach US $555billion by 2020, making it the world's largest clean energy market. The clean energy technology and scientific research and development in Europe are at the world leading level

from a global perspective, in addition to maintaining global leadership in most low-carbon technology fields, the EU has also created many unique mechanisms for low-carbon development, and the EU's effective model for developing low-carbon industries is becoming a global model. For example, the emissions trading system has covered 30% to 50% of the industrial and energy industries in the region

at present, emissions trading is regarded as an important tool to achieve emission reduction at the lowest cost, which not only helps the EU and enterprises to achieve emission reduction commitments, but also provides substantive investment and access to clean technology for developing countries. As the largest trading partner of the EU, Chinese goods must obtain a "low-carbon" pass to enter the EU market in the future. In fact, Chinese exporters can already see that EU environmental standards are being tightened

heshihong believes that China's low-carbon development road has just started. At the critical moment when carbon tariffs may affect China EU economic and trade cooperation and may trigger a trade war, China should overcome its own unfavorable factors in the choice of low-carbon strategic path, strengthen foreign exchanges and cooperation, and realize the smooth promotion of low-carbon economy

on October, the "forum on strategic cooperation and development between Europe and China" will be held in Beijing. During the two-day session, the forum will hold five "new end of experiment global cooperation model summits" on finance, energy, cities, culture and tourism, and media, as well as two forums, including the China Financial eco city development forum and the national finance office development forum. In addition, the 5th annual meeting of Chinese finance mayors will also be held at the same time

it is reported that hot issues such as how to realize the low-carbon strategy, establish a multi-level carbon financial market system, and innovate financial services will be identified as the key topics of the "Europe China strategic cooperation and Development Forum". At that time, officials and experts from the energy sector in Europe and China will have in-depth exchanges on the development of low-carbon economy. Industry insiders expect that this forum can build a communication platform for the exchange and cooperation of low-carbon technologies

in addition, due to the research and judgment on financial issues on the forum, there is no doubt that low-carbon and financial issues can be highly integrated to find a carbon finance development path in line with Chinese characteristics
