Before the speech

Energy is the material foundation that sustains the progress of human civilization and is an indispensable basic condition for the development of modern society. Energy is always a major strategic issue in the process of China's modernization and the common prosperity of all people.

Since the reform and opening up in the late 1970s, China's energy industry has come a long way. At present, China has become the world's biggest energy producer, formed coal, electricity, oil, natural gas and new energy and renewable energy comprehensive development system of energy supply, energy universal service level improved, residents living conditions greatly improved. The development of energy provides a strong guarantee for the elimination of poverty, improving people's livelihood and maintaining steady and rapid economic development.

China's energy development faces many challenges. The energy resources are low, and coal, oil and gas per capita are low. Energy consumption has increased rapidly in recent years, and the pressure on energy supply has increased. The large-scale exploitation and utilization of fossil energy has a certain effect on the ecological environment.

To reduce the excessive consumption of energy resources, economic, social and ecological comprehensive, balanced and sustainable development of China's increasing efforts in energy conservation and emissions reduction, efforts to improve the efficiency of energy utilization, per unit of GDP energy consumption dropped year by year. China will be guided by the scientific concept of development, and transformation of the mode of development, focus on building a resource-conserving and environmentally friendly society, relying on energy technology innovation and system innovation, improve energy efficiency, vigorously develop new energy and renewable energy, promote the clean and efficient development and utilization of fossil energy, efforts to build security, stability, economy and cleaning system of modern energy industry, for China's construction of a well-off society in an all-round way to provide a more solid energy security, and make greater contributions to world economic development.

First, the status quo of energy development

Since China's reform and opening up, rapid growth of China's energy industry, has realized the coal, electricity, oil and natural gas, the all-round development of renewable energy and new energy, to ensure long-term stable and rapid development of national economy and people's living standard continuously improve made important contributions.

-- there has been a significant increase in supply assurance. In 2011, China's total energy production reached 3.18 billion tons of standard coal, ranking first in the world. It produced 3.52 billion tons of raw coal, a stable of 200 million tons of crude oil and 270 million tons of refined oil products. Natural gas production increased rapidly, reaching 103.1 billion cubic meters. It has a capacity of 1.06 billion kilowatts and annual power generation of 4.7 trillion kilowatt hours. The energy integrated transport system has developed rapidly. The pipeline is more than 70,000 kilometers long and the natural gas trunk line is 40 thousand kilometers long. The power grid has a basic national interconnection, and the transmission line of 330 kv and above is 179,000 km. The first phase of the national petroleum reserve project has been built, and energy emergency preparedness has been strengthened.

-- the energy savings are clear. China has vigorously promoted energy conservation. Between 1981 and 2011, China's energy consumption grew at an average annual rate of 5.82 percent, supporting an average annual growth of 10 percent for the national economy. From 2006 to 2011, the total energy consumption of 10,000 yuan of GDP fell by 20.7 percent, and achieved energy efficiency of 7.1 billion tons of standard coal. Implementation of boiler, electrical energy-saving reform, building energy efficiency, green lighting and a series of energy-saving renovation project, the main energy-consuming products of comprehensive energy consumption and the international advanced level gap is narrowing, non-ferrous, building materials, petrochemical and other new energy heavy chemical industry project efficiency reached the world advanced level. It can save more than 60 million tons of raw coal per year by eliminating the 80gw of low power generating units. In 2011, coal-fired power consumption in the country fell by 10 percent from 2006 to 37 grams of standard coal/KWH.

-- non-fossil energy development. China actively develops new energy and renewable energy sources. In 2011, the country's hydropower capacity reached 230 million kw, ranking first in the world. The nuclear power plant has 15 stations and installed capacity of 12.54 mw, with 26 units under construction and a total installed capacity of 29.24 million kw, the largest in the world. Wind power has a combined capacity of 47 million kilowatts, ranking first in the world. Photovoltaic power is growing strongly, with a capacity of 3 gigawatts. Solar water heaters have an area of over 200 million square meters. We will actively promote the use of other renewable energy sources such as biogas, geothermal energy and tidal energy. Non-fossil fuels account for 8 percent of energy consumption, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 600 million tons per year.

-- the level of science and technology has improved rapidly. Built a relatively complete system of oil and gas exploration and development technology, complex block exploration and development, improve the oil recovery technology in a leading position in the world. The 3,000m deepwater horizon rig was built successfully. Tens of thousands of tons of oil refining and millions of tons of ethylene devices are designed and manufactured independently. Breakthroughs have been made in coal direct liquefaction and coal-to-alkene technology with advanced global and indigenous intellectual property rights. The degree of mechanization of coal mining in the country reached more than 60%, and the whole set of equipment was fully promoted. Millions of mw ultra-supercritical, large air cooling unit is widely used, the large capacity high parameters, such as design of 700000 mw turbine unit manufacturing technology reached the world advanced level. It has the capability of self-design, construction and operation of the MWH nuclear power plant, and has made major breakthroughs in the development of high temperature gas cooled reactor and fast reactor technology. Three megawatt wind turbines were used in batches, and the six-megawatt wind turbines were successfully removed. The manufacturing industry chain of solar photovoltaic power generation, which produces more than 40 percent of the global production capacity, is formed. The technology and equipment manufacturing level of uht is the leading position in the world.

-- improve on your ability. We will actively promote the construction of people's livelihood energy projects and improve the level of energy services. In 2011, China's per capita energy consumption reached 2.6 tons of standard coal, up 31 percent from 2006. Per capita gas consumption was 89.6 cubic meters, up 110 percent. Per capita electricity consumption is 3493 kilowatt-hours, up 60%. The first line of west gas and the second line of project, the national use of natural gas has more than 180 million people. We implemented the upgrading and upgrading of rural power grids, and invested more than 550 billion RMB in the rural electric grid, making the situation of rural electricity consumption radically changed. The construction of the qinghai-tibet networking project has successfully completed the history of the operation of the isolated network in Tibet. We promoted power generation in the non-electric region and solved the electricity problem of more than 30 million people without electricity. In the northern part of the country, 70 million kilowatts of heat and electricity production was built, and the heating problem of over 40 million urban people was solved.

Environmental protection has been outstanding. China will accelerate the management of coal mining and subsidence areas, establish and improve the mechanism for the restoration of coal development and ecological environment. In 2011, the rate of primary coal entry was 52%, and the land reclamation rate was 40%. We will accelerate the construction of coal-burning power plants for desulphurization and denuded facilities, and the gas desulfurization units account for about 90 percent of the country's coal-fired units. The rate of installation and discharge of coal unit dust removal facilities and wastewater discharge is 100%. The development and utilization of coal bed methane (coal mine gas) was developed, and the extraction volume reached 11.4 billion cubic meters, which was the first in the world to implement the coal bed methane emission standard. Over the past five years, the energy consumption per unit of GDP has decreased by 1.46 billion tons.

-- the institutional mechanism is constantly improving. The market mechanism plays an increasing role in the allocation of resources. Investment in the energy sector has diversified and private investment has been growing. The production and circulation of coal is basically market-oriented. The electric power industry has implemented the separation of government and enterprises, the separation of the factory network and the preliminary establishment of the regulatory system. Energy price reform has been deepened and the mechanism for price formation has been gradually improved. We launched a pilot program for sustainable development of coal industries. We formulated the system of electricity tariff for wind power and pv, and established the renewable energy development fund. Strengthen energy legal system construction, in recent years issued the revised "energy conservation law", "renewable energy law", "circular economy promotion law", the oil and gas pipeline protection act and regulations on the civil building energy efficiency, regulations on the public agencies and other laws and regulations.

As the world's largest producer of energy, China relies on its own power to develop energy, and its energy supply has remained at around 90%. China's energy development has not only ensured domestic economic and social development, but also made major contributions to world energy security. In the coming period, China will continue to be in the stage of industrialization and urbanization, and energy demand will continue to grow.

-- the conflict of resource constraints is prominent. China's per capita energy resources in the world at lower levels, the ownership of coal, oil and natural gas per capita is only 67% of the world's average level, 5.4% and 7.5%. Although China's energy consumption has grown rapidly in recent years, it is still relatively low in energy consumption per capita, just a third of the average in the developed world. With the development of economic and social development and the improvement of people's living standards, future energy consumption will also be greatly increased, and resource constraints will continue to grow.

-- energy efficiency needs to be improved. China's industrial structure is not reasonable and the mode of economic development has yet to be improved. China's energy consumption per unit of GDP is not only much higher than that of developed countries, but also more than some of the newly industrialized countries. Energy-intensive technologies behind, the second industry, especially in energy-intensive industries too much energy, steel, nonferrous metal, chemical industry, building materials four energy-intensive industries can use accounted for about 40% of the whole society can use. The energy efficiency is relatively low, the unit added value energy consumption is higher.

Environmental pressures are mounting. The large-scale exploitation and utilization of fossil fuels, especially coal, has a serious impact on the ecological environment. A large number of cultivated land occupied and destruction, water pollution is serious, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and harmful emissions of heavy metals, ozone and fine particulate matter (PM2.5) increased pollution, etc. The future quite a long period of time, the fossil energy in energy structure in China still account for the main body status, protect the ecological environment, increasing pressure to respond to climate change, an urgent need to green energy transformation.

-- the energy security situation is grim. In recent years, energy dependence has been rising fast, especially in oil, which has risen from 32% in the early 2000s to 57% today. The safety risks of oil and Marine transport are increased, and the safety of cross-border oil and gas pipelines should not be ignored. Price volatility in the international energy market has increased the difficulty of securing domestic energy supplies. The energy reserves are smaller, the emergency capability is relatively weak and the energy security situation is grim.

The institutional mechanism urgently needs reform. Deep-seated contradictions accumulate energy system mechanism, price mechanism is not perfect, industry management is still relatively weak, energy generally, it is necessary to improve the service level institutional constraints has become a serious obstacle to promote the development of energy science.

The problems facing China's energy development, is by the international energy competition, China's productivity level and stage of development, also with unreasonable industrial structure and energy structure, energy development and utilization pattern is closely related to the mechanism reform lags behind, the related system. China will vigorously promote energy production and utilization way change, perfecting the policy system, to achieve energy and comprehensive, balanced and sustainable development of economy, society and ecology.

Second, energy development policies and objectives

China is the world's largest developing country, facing the daunting task of developing economy, improving people's livelihood and building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. Maintaining sustainable and sustainable energy resources is an important strategic task for the Chinese government. China's energy must go high technology content, low resources consumption, little environmental pollution and good economic benefit and safeguard the development of roads, fully realize the economical development, clean development and safe development.

The basic content of China's energy policy is: adhere to the "saving priority, based on domestic, diversified development, environmental protection, science and technology innovation, deepen the reform, international cooperation, improve people's livelihood" energy development policy, to promote energy production and utilization way change, building security, stability, economic, clean modern energy industry system, efforts to support the sustainable development of economic and social sustainable development of energy.

The law of the People's Republic of China on the twelfth five-year plan for national economic and social development outline put forward: by 2015, China non-fossil energy of primary energy consumption ratio reached 11.4%, per unit of GDP energy consumption 16% lower than in 2010, per unit of GDP carbon dioxide emissions 17% lower than in 2010.

The Chinese government promised that by 2020 non-fossil energy of primary energy consumption ratio will reach 15%, per unit of GDP carbon dioxide emissions by 40% - 45% than in 2005. As a responsible major country, China will make unremitting efforts to achieve this goal.

Third, we will comprehensively promote energy conservation

China has a large population and a relative shortage of resources. To realize sustainable and sustainable economic and social development of energy resources, we must take the path of energy conservation.

China has always prioritized energy conservation. As early as the early 1980s, the state put forward the development policy of "developing and saving and putting economy first". In 2006, the Chinese government issued the "decision on strengthening energy efficiency". In 2007, the comprehensive work plan for energy conservation and emission reduction was released, and the energy conservation work in major areas such as industry, construction and transportation was fully deployed. Implementation of "ten major energy conservation projects", push coal-fired industrial boilers and furnaces, utilization of by-product heat pressure and motor system energy saving, building energy efficiency, green lighting, government agencies, form the energy-saving capacity of 340 million tons of standard coal. We launched the "thousand enterprises energy saving operation", and key enterprises, including the comprehensive energy consumption, fell sharply, saving 150 million tons of standard coal. During the eleventh five-year plan period, energy consumption per unit of GDP fell 19.1%.

In 2011, China issued "the comprehensive energy saving and emission reduction work" twelfth five-year "plan", put forward the "twelfth five-year" period and the key work, the main targets for energy conservation and emissions reduction to reduce energy intensity, the decrease of total discharge of major pollutants, the reasonable control of the total energy consumption work organically, form the "reversed transmission mechanism", promote strategic adjustment of economic structure, optimize the industrial structure and layout, strengthen the industrial, construction, transportation, public institutions and urban and rural construction and consumption energy management, building a resource-conserving and environment-friendly society in an all-round way.

-- optimize the industrial structure. China has insisted on restructuring its industrial structure as a strategic priority for energy conservation. We will strictly control the construction of low levels, and accelerate the elimination of energy-intensive, high-emission and backward production capacity. We will accelerate the use of advanced technology for upgrading traditional industries. We will increase the threshold for processing trade and promote the transformation and upgrading of processing trade. Improving the structure of foreign trade and promoting the transformation of foreign trade from energy and labor intensive to capital and technology-intensive. We will promote the development of the service industry. We will cultivate and develop strategic emerging industries and accelerate the formation of a leading and pillar industry.

Strengthening international cooperation on energy

China cannot develop in isolation from the rest of the world. The prosperity of the world needs China. With the deepening of globalization, China is increasingly connected with the world in energy development. China's energy development not only guarantees its economic and social development, but also contributes to safeguarding world energy security and maintaining global market stability.

China is a responsible active participant in international energy cooperation. In bilateral cooperation, China and the United States, the European Union, Japan, Russia, kazakhstan, turkmenistan, uzbekistan, Brazil, Argentina, venezuela and other countries and regions set up energy dialogue and cooperation mechanism, the oil and gas, coal, electric power, renewable energy, technology and equipment and energy policy, and other fields to strengthen dialogue, exchanges and cooperation. In the multilateral cooperation, China is in the Asia Pacific economic cooperation organization energy working group, the group of 20 nations, the Shanghai cooperation organization, the world energy council, a full member of the international energy organizations and mechanisms such as BBS or important participant, is the observer states energy charter, with the international energy agency, the organization of petroleum exporting countries such as institutions maintained close contact. In international energy cooperation, China has both broad international obligations and a positive constructive role.

China is committed to opening up to the outside world in the energy sector, constantly optimizing the environment for foreign investment and ensuring the lawful rights and interests of investors. China has successively introduced the chinese-foreign equity joint venture law, the sino-foreign cooperative joint venture law, the foreign investment enterprise law and other laws and regulations, as well as the foreign investment industrial guidance catalogue, the catalog of foreign-funded dominant industries of the mid-west region and other policy documents. China encourages foreign investors to cooperate in exploration and development of oil and gas, and develop unconventional oil and gas resources such as shale gas and coal bed methane. It will encourage investment in new energy plants, hydroelectric plants and plants that use clean burning technology, as well as those controlled by China. Encourage multinational energy companies to set up r&d centers in China.

Chinese energy companies follow the principle of equality and reciprocity, mutual benefit and win-win, active participation in international energy cooperation and participation in overseas energy infrastructure construction, energy engineering technology development service cooperation. Enterprise foreign investment cooperation development of China's energy resources, more than 90% in local sales, increased the global energy market, promote the diversification of supply channels. Chinese energy companies in foreign investment cooperation, comply with local laws and regulations, respect the local religious beliefs and customs, in the realization of self development and at the same time, actively contribute to the local economic and social development.

For a long time to come, the international energy trade will remain the primary means of China's use of foreign energy. China will follow the rules of the world trade organization, improve fair trade policies, conduct energy import and export trade and optimize trade structure. Comprehensive application of futures trade, long trade, entrepot trade, barter trade, etc., to promote diversified trade. Actively participating in global energy governance, strengthen the communication and cooperation with the rest of the world, jointly cope with the international monetary system, excessive speculation, monopoly on the influence of the energy market, maintaining the stability of the international energy market and price.

Energy issues are related to the national economy and people's well-being. In order to reduce the energy resources problem of conflict and inequality, realize smooth and orderly development of world economy, promote economic globalization towards the direction of equilibrium, pratt &whitney and win-win, needs the international community to establish mutually beneficial cooperation, diversified forms of development and protection of the new energy security concept. In order to jointly safeguard global energy security, China maintains that the international community should make efforts in the following three areas:

-- strengthen dialogue and exchanges. Strengthening dialogue and exchanges between energy exporters, consumers and transit countries is the foundation for conducting international cooperation on energy. More closely multilateral relations, the international community should strengthen to increase energy efficiency, energy conservation, environmental protection, energy management, energy policy dialogue, improve the international energy market monitoring and emergency response mechanism, deepening the information exchanges, personnel training, the cooperation between the coordinated action, etc.

-- conducting practical cooperation on energy. Countries should adhere to the principle of mutual benefit and common development, the international energy resources exploration and development and mutual benefit cooperation, enrich and perfect the mechanism and means of cooperation, increasing global energy supply, promote the diversification of supply channels. We will work together to stabilize the price of commodities and ensure that all countries can demand and maintain the normal order of energy markets. Developed countries should be the height of the human sustainable development, on the premise of protection of intellectual property rights, and actively to the developing countries and developed countries provide, transfer of clean and efficient energy technologies, promote green development in the world. The international community should work together to help the least developed countries eradicate energy poverty, expand energy services and promote sustainable development.

-- jointly safeguard world energy security. Fair and reasonable international energy governance is an important condition for safeguarding the stability of the world's energy markets. All countries should strengthen cooperation, jointly maintain energy producer and transit countries, especially in the Middle East oil-producing areas such as stability, ensure safety and smooth international energy channels, reduce the interference of geopolitical disputes to the global energy supply. Through dialogue and consultation, addressing major international energy issues should not politicize energy issues, avoid resorting to force, and even provoke confrontation.


Energy is an important material foundation for China to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects and achieve modernization and a strong country. China will work hard to solve the energy problem and unswervingly follow the path of energy and sustainable development.

A period in the future, China will still in the stage of industrialization and urbanization speed up the development of the task is very difficult for the development of the economy, improve people's livelihood, energy demand will also increase. As a big developing country with a population of 1.3 billion, China must base on domestic increasing energy supply, steadily improve the supply ability, satisfy the steady and rapid economic development and people's living standards improve the demand for energy.

Energy security is a global problem, and most countries cannot leave international cooperation for energy security. China's achievements in energy development are inseparable from friendly cooperation with other countries in the world. China's future energy development needs the understanding and support of the international community. China, with a billion people, is on the path of sustainable development of energy. This is a new exploration and practice in the development of human energy. China has not, is, and will not pose a threat to world energy security. China will be in line with the principles of equality and mutual benefit, mutual benefit and win-win results, further strengthen with other energy producers, consumers and the international energy agency cooperation, to promote the sustainable development of the world's energy, maintain the stability of the international energy market and price, ensure safety and smooth of international energy channel, to ensure global energy security and contribute to climate change.
