The three departments issued a major document to help the industrial field to save energy and reduce carbon!

The “Plan” proposes six key tasks, two major actions and a number of policy guarantees.

The “Plan” clearly states that by 2025, the energy consumption per unit of added value of industrial enterprises above designated size will drop by 13.5% compared with 2020, the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of industrial added value will be greater than that of the whole society, and the intensity of carbon dioxide emissions in key industries will drop significantly. By 2030, a modern industrial system featuring high efficiency, greenness, recycling and low carbon will be basically established. Ensure that industrial CO2 emissions peak by 2030.

Six key tasks to help energy conservation and carbon reduction in the industrial field

The “Plan” proposes six key tasks, including in-depth adjustment of industrial structure, in-depth promotion of energy conservation and carbon reduction, active promotion of green manufacturing, vigorous development of circular economy, acceleration of industrial green and low-carbon technological transformation, and active promotion of digital transformation in the industrial field.

At the same time, the “Plan” makes it clear that two major actions will be carried out. The first is the action of peaking in key industries, focusing on key industries, reducing the intensity of carbon emissions and controlling the amount of carbon emissions; the second is the action to improve the supply of green and low-carbon products, giving play to the supporting role of green and low-carbon products and equipment in carbon neutrality work.

The “Plan” proposes a roadmap for carbon peaking in the industrial sector before 2030, which is comprehensive and focused, and clarifies the key directions and key tasks for low-carbon transformation in the industrial sector.

For example, one of the highlights of this “Plan” is to focus on seven major industries including steel, building materials, petrochemicals, non-ferrous metals, consumer goods, equipment manufacturing, electronics, etc., and implement policies and continue to promote each industry in order to reduce the intensity of carbon emissions and control carbon emissions. A clear low-carbon development roadmap has been formulated. The goal of the electronics industry mentioned in it is that by 2025, the application scope of continuous crystal pulling technology will exceed 95%, and the proportion of non-electric energy in the lithium battery materials and optical fiber industries will be less than 7% and 2%, respectively.

This is the first time that the state has put forward requirements for the proportion of energy used in the lithium battery materials and optical fiber industries. Lithium battery materials include cathode materials, anode materials, separators, electrolytes, copper foils, etc., and energy is required in the production process.

Another highlight of the “Program” is in the part of policy guarantee and organizational implementation. The “Plan” proposes to improve laws and regulations, build a standard measurement system, and improve economic policies and market mechanisms; it emphasizes strengthening overall coordination, strengthening responsibility implementation, and deepening publicity and communication. This fully shows that the “Plan” attaches great importance to collaborative governance, strengthens the leadership of demonstration projects, and emphasizes the use of market-oriented means and the determination to follow up the construction of the rule of law.

Promote the digital transformation of the industrial sector, accelerate the green and low-carbon transformation of the manufacturing industry

Proactively promoting the digital transformation of the industrial sector is one of the key tasks proposed in the Plan. The “Plan” proposes to promote the green and low-carbon transformation of digitally empowered industries, strengthen the connection between enterprise needs and information service supply, and accelerate the application and promotion of digital low-carbon solutions. Specifically, it is necessary to promote the deep integration of a new generation of information technology and manufacturing.

Industrial digital transformation will play an important role in industrial green and low-carbon transformation. First of all, the application of a new generation of information technology to the field of industrial production can provide data on energy use and carbon emissions in the entire industrial production process. for more targeted management.

Second, industrial digital transformation can make the entire industrial system run more efficiently. The digital transformation of the industry will bring about leaner production. Enterprises will produce as much as users need, which can reduce a lot of energy input waste and carbon emissions.

Third, the combination of information technology and other energy technologies can provide green energy and low-carbon technologies.

In addition, the “Plan” proposes to establish a digital carbon management system. This can promote enterprises to build a carbon emission data measurement, monitoring, and analysis system, thereby further promoting “industrial Internet + green and low carbon”. Focus on typical scenarios such as energy management, energy conservation and carbon reduction, cultivate and promote standardized “industrial Internet + green and low-carbon” solutions and industrial APPs, and help the green transformation of industries and regions.

The “Plan” also mentions the development of green credit and the improvement of the supporting system of the national carbon emission rights trading market, all of which are based on the principles of marketization and the rule of law to build a financial mechanism to effectively support the green and low-carbon development of industries. Establish a guide catalog and project library for industrial green development. Under the premise of compliance with laws and regulations and controllable risks, the use of green credit can speed up the green and low-carbon transformation of the manufacturing industry. Of course, while promoting green credit, it is necessary to build a legal system that is conducive to green and low-carbon development, and coordinate the formulation and revision of energy conservation laws. , Renewable Energy Law, Circular Economy Promotion Law, Cleaner Production Promotion Law and other laws and regulations, and further improve the supporting system related to carbon peaking in the industrial field.
