Energy efficiency improvement will be the top priority in the 14th five year plan, and comprehensive energy services have great potential


China integrated energy service network reported that the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Committee closed yesterday. The plenary session deliberated and adopted the CPC's proposal on formulating the 14th five year plan for national economic and social development and the long-term goals for the year 2035

On the same day, the communique of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Committee was published. In this communique, there are two issues related to energy.

• the plenary session put forward the main objectives of economic and social development during the 14th Five Year Plan period, one of which is to achieve new progress in the construction of ecological civilization, optimize the pattern of land and space development and protection, achieve remarkable results in the green transformation of production and lifestyle, make more rational allocation of energy resources, significantly improve utilization efficiency, continuously reduce the total discharge of major pollutants and continuously improve the ecological environment, The ecological security barrier has been strengthened, and the living environment in urban and rural areas has been significantly improved.

• the plenary session put forward the work deployment during the 14th Five Year Plan period, one of which is to accelerate the development of modern industrial system and promote the optimization and upgrading of economic system. We should improve the modernization level of industrial chain and supply chain, develop strategic emerging industries, accelerate the development of modern service industry, comprehensively promote infrastructure construction, accelerate the construction of a transportation power, promote the energy revolution and accelerate digital development.

It is the core guiding ideology for the preparation of the 14th five year plan. Although the words related to energy mentioned in the Communique are very few and relatively macro, it can still see the core points of energy development in the 14th five year plan. Among them, the development goal of significantly improving energy efficiency is relatively specific, in short, improving energy efficiency.

As we all know, energy efficiency improvement is one of the core businesses of integrated energy services. The four key business areas of integrated energy services of grid companies include integrated energy efficiency services, multi energy supply services, clean energy services and emerging energy consumption services. The importance of energy efficiency service business ranks first.

In addition to the power grid, the vast majority of integrated energy service companies, including power investment, take energy efficiency services as the core business segment. In the current comprehensive energy service market, energy efficiency services are also feasible and have a large market share.

In fact, in a broad sense, the development of integrated energy services, no matter what business it does, will eventually be conducive to energy efficiency improvement.

The statistical results show that China needs to consume 3.7 tons of standard coal for every $10000 GDP in 2016, which is 1.4 times the world average level and about twice the developed level. The energy consumption level is high. Different energy supply systems such as electricity, heat and gas are integrated and complementary, the cascade utilization degree is not high, and the overall utilization efficiency of the energy system is low. Comprehensive energy services can develop new value-added services, curb unreasonable energy consumption, reduce enterprise equipment energy consumption, adjust enterprise energy consumption structure, improve energy efficiency, promote industrial transformation and upgrading, optimize urban construction planning and design, and improve the overall energy efficiency level of society.

According to the plan, under the guidance of the spirit of the plenary session, the outline of the 14th five year plan will be examined and approved at the fourth session of the 13th National People's Congress next year. Under the guidance of the outline, the "14th five year plan" of the energy industry will be officially issued by the end of next year, and the specific measures to improve energy efficiency are expected to be described in the plan. Today, we can confirm that the improvement of energy efficiency during the 14th Five Year Plan period will be the top priority, the expansion of energy efficiency service market will be accelerated, and comprehensive energy services will have great prospects.
