We are committed to sharing the “sunshine benefits”, which not only helps protect our environment, but also creates the wealth. We vigorously promoted the “Golden Roof” program, focusing on the PV application scenarios including industrial plants, public institutions, residential roofs, green travel, and so on. More than 200 industrial and commercial rooftop PV projects have been completed and more than 6,300 homeowners have installed the PV facilities on their roofs. We actively explore the promotion and application of green energy, such as fishing and PV integration. The annual average value of the power generated by the Tongwei Huantai 30MW fishing and PV integration project is about 35 million yuan, saving about 11,000 tons of standard coal. We vigorously carry out “poverty alleviation through PV projects” and shared the dividend of green energy reform. We have installed PV power generation devices for 300 poor households free of charge, which helps the poor families each increase an income by about 3,000 yuan per year. We have solidly carried out comprehensive ecological and environmental management to improve our environment and enhance the happiness and satisfaction of the people.

Xu Yuchang:

Today, it is my great honor to be here with global experts on green energy development, government officials committed to new energy to take the road of high-quality and sustainable development, and friends concerned about green energy and high-quality development to discuss about green energy development.

Developing green energy on basis of China’s status quo is an important strategy for China to improve its energy structure, ensure energy security and promote the construction of ecological civilization. Meanwhile, it has become a worldwide consensus to promote sustainable development by means of green energy. Especially in energy cooperation, a key area of the Belt and Road construction, countries attach more and more importance to green and low-carbon economy and prioritize the development and utilization of clean energy.

Under the general trend of global green energy development and in the background of Yangzhong’s "ecological city" "empowered" by new energy, China Economic Information Service of Xinhua News Agency has worked closely with Yangzhong government in recent years to launch a grand event for the green energy industry and promote the development of the industry. After the First International Green Energy Development Conference was successfully held in 2017, China Economic Information Service of Xinhua News Agency and Yangzhong once again joined hands to hold the Second International Green Energy Development Conference this year based on the deepened cooperation and the establishment of a strategic cooperation relationship. During the conference, China Economic Information Service will issue the the Global Green Energy Application Development Report and a Report on Belt and Road Green Energy Investment Environment.

Xu Yuchang:

Facing the future, China Economic Information Service will give full play to its advantages in the following three aspects to further promote the application and development of green energy.

First, reduce information asymmetry and help green energy enterprises avoid risks in international cooperation by making full use of information collection and international market research of Xinhua Silk Road, a national information service platform for the Belt and Road under the China Economic Information Service, as well as the energy industry research team of Xinhua News Agency, a national high end think tank, to contribute to the steady progress of Chinese green energy enterprises in overseas markets.

Second, facilitate information sharing and forge ahead the wide spread of the green energy cooperation along the Belt and Road. In June this year, we jointly launched the Belt and Road Economic Information Partnership (BREIP) with over 30 news agencies, business associations and information institutions around the world. With the ecological advantages of BREIP, we will transmit information concerning the Belt and Road and green energy to professional institutions and users in a more convenient, effective and accurate way, which encourages international resources matching and cooperation in green energy projects.

Third, promote information dissemination, advocate sustainable development and green concept, and build a green silk road. We have expanding "circles of friends" at home and abroad in economic information that are all over the world and among the political, academic, business and research fields. With the help of these friends, we will effectively spread the concept of green development, build a bridge of communication between China and the world, reach consensus on sustainable development, and create a community with a shared future in green energy development.

Xu Dingming:

China's PV enterprises have made indelible contributions to global PV industry innovation and cost reduction.

We can envision a future with diversified energy resources, localized energy sources, intelligent energy technology, digital energy life, decentralized energy production, shared energy network, efficient energy utilization, convenient energy use, universal energy services, and low-carbon energy economy.

To develop energy in the future, first, we should push for energy revolution in all aspects; second, we should take proactive measures to scrap the use of coal; third, we should be active in transcending the age of oil and gas; fourth, we should embrace a future of zero emission; fifth, we should work to realize the in-depth integration of industrialization and informatization.

Digitization is empowering the ongoing energy revolution and will serve as the most fundamental tool and capacity for any enterprises to stay viable.

We cannot go without private enterprises to advance China's energy revolution, let alone to develop China's renewables.

Private enterprises are the pioneer, entrepreneurs, innovators, leaders and backbone of China's renewables field.

China's economy has shifted from fast growth to quality development. As such, China has entered a new stage of quality development.

PV industry should value quality as how we value life.

Chen Xixi:

The report shows the following features and trends in global green energy application and development:

First, Global green energy transition is proceeding at a faster pace despite twists and turns, and 65 countries/regions have set the target of realizing 100 percent green power utilization

In recent years, global green energy transition has suffered some setbacks. In 2018, since some countries/regions did not release new alternative policies on green energy development, the number of countries/regions with green energy development goals dropped to 169, decreasing 10 compared with 2017; 111 countries/regions released subsidy policies, decreasing one compared with 2017.

However, it is good to see that amid intensified impacts of climate change, major countries and international organizations have attached great importance to green energy utilization and development, and made greater efforts in planning to push for the green, structural transformation of global energy at a faster pace despite twists and turns.

In 2018, 65 countries/regions set up the goal of 100 percent green power utilization, 8 more than in 2017; 135 countries/regions formulated policies and regulations for green energy development in power generation and utilization; 70 countries and regions rolled out relevant policies in transportation to push for the utilization of green energy vehicle and other green transportation technologies; 44 countries and regions worked out policies on carbon pricing or trading.

As a leading player in green energy utilization and development, China is gathering the spotlight for its policy support for green energy. According to the Clean Energy Elimination Action Plan (2018-2020) issued by the National Development and Reform Commission and National Energy Administration, China will work to ensure that the average wind power utilization across the country to reach world’s advanced level and the utilization rate of photovoltaic power to be higher than 95 percent by 2020. In the U.S., nearly 100 cities have promised to realize 100 percent use of renewables. Among those, Burlington and other five cities have delivered the goal. EU has set the goal of getting 32 percent energy from renewables in 2030 and promised to realize zero emission in 2050.

Another activity of the NSC is floating PV test-bedding, which explores the use of inland water reservoirs for PV system deployment to provide additional solar capacity. The research includes side-by-side comparison of major commercial floating PV technologies, detailed monitoring of all floating PV systems, economics (levelized cost of energy, LCOE) and environmental impact.

The first off-shore FPV project in Singapore is the 5 MWp project near Woodlands by Sunseap.

It’s likely world’s largest offshore floating PV system, with a size of 5 football fields, supported by the Singapore EDB.

Albert Y. Zomaya:

Sustainable computing aims to reduce the growing ICT carbon footprint by reducing the energy consumption of computing devices and sustainable ICT technologies will be used as enablers to reduce the carbon footprint of production and energy consumption by society.

AI at edge computing helps find timely and accurate identification of PV module defects to ensure adequate lifetime of PV modules as well as safe operation of large-scale PV farms.

In smart home, appliance scheduling can reduce the electricity bill of each household by shifting energy demands from peak hours towards off-peak hours, and meanwhile automatically determining a cost-efficient working mode for each appliance. 

Green energy integration of a smart home uses solar energy to help support the running of IoT applications with energy-hungry smart appliances in households. Load determination and scheduling techniques are used to maximize the use of solar energy harvesting from the ambient environment to minimize the tariffs.

Sustainable computing is the ideal application domain of the IoT+AI+Edge Computing.
