ORIGINAL TITLE: China's Renewable Energy Development has maintained strong momentum. Zhao Daiqing, deputy director of the Guangzhou Energy Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, attended the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit "accelerating the electrification of transportation through policy and market innovation" side event, chinanews.com, San Francisco, September 15(Feng lingling) Zhao Daiqing, deputy director of the Guangzhou Institute of Energy Studies of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said on the sidelines of the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit "accelerating the transition to electrification of transportation through policy and market innovation, " Addressing climate change is not only China's responsibility on the international stage, but also its need to build a beautiful China. To achieve this goal, China's energy mix needs to change. Zhao Daiqing said that on the one hand, energy efficiency should be continuously improved, and on the other hand, the proportion of zero-carbon and low-carbon energy in the energy mix should be greatly increased. While controlling energy demand, the incremental demand for energy is borne by clean and renewable energy sources. "developing renewable energy is an important way for the world to deal with climate change, and it is also a core part of China's efforts to promote a green energy transition, " Zhao said. Zhao Daiqing pointed out that from the current situation, China's renewable energy development has maintained strong momentum. First, China has abundant renewable energy reserves, and the scale of development and construction has gradually expanded. Second, China's energy technology is increasingly mature, and the industrial system of renewable energy has gradually improved, forming a new type of energy industry, its economic effects are also growing. There are still some new tasks ahead to maintain the sustainable and healthy development of renewable energy. Zhao said that on the one hand to improve renewable energy efficiency, on the other hand, to strengthen the internal driving force of scientific and technological innovation, driving costs down. In addition, the absorptive capacity of the renewable energy grid needs to be significantly increased to accommodate more renewable energy into the grid. Zhao Daiqing pointed out that the future renewable energy system is a diversified energy system, multi-complementary, coordinated development. In addition, energy storage technology will become a key regulatory technology for the development of renewable energy, which makes the energy system more flexible and flexible. With the advancement of Science and technology and the promotion of the external environment, renewable energy plays an increasingly important role in the energy system. Zhao said that the Chinese government, scientific research institutions and the capital market have made unremitting efforts to promote renewable energy development. He hoped that countries could strengthen exchanges and cooperation to jointly promote energy transformation. (end)
