  • The Danish-Chinese Wind Energy Development Programme (WED) http://www.dwed.org.cn/en/index.asp  To assist with an increased employment of wind power in China, the Chinese-Danish Wind Energy Development Programme (WED, the Programme) was initiated between Danish and Chinese government. The overall objective of the WED Programme was to realize a significant renewable energy contribution to the energy supply in China, with immediate objectives of improving the framework, plans and capacities on effective exploitation of wind energy at both the national level and in Heilongjiang, Liaoning and Jilin – the three selected North-east provinces. This has been achieved through introducing international and specifically Danish knowledge and experience in the wind energy sector through close collaboration with the Chinese government agencies, research institutions, technology organizations, educational agencies and electrical enterprises. The Programme Steering Commission (PSC) comprised of members from the National Energy Administration(NEA),,the Ministry of Commerce and the Royal Danish Embassy (RDE). A Programme Management Office (PMO) was hosted by the Energy Research Institute of National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and was responsible for the overall management and monitoring of the programme. After more than three years of cooperation, the programme has achieved great success and is viewed as a an good model of successful Sino-foreign collaboration in renewable energy development projects in China. Three provinces in the northeast China were pilot areas for the programme. WED comprises of four main components: wind energy resource assessment; wind farm planning and post-installation evaluation; grid integration studies of wind power and training and dissemination.

Part 3 International Collaboration in Energy

  • International Energy Agency, China page http://www.iea.org/countries/non-membercountries/chinapeoplesrepublicof/ The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an autonomous organisation which works to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 28 member countries and beyond. Founded in response to the 1973/4 oil crisis, the IEA’s initial role was to help countries co-ordinate a collective response to major disruptions in oil supply through the release of emergency oil stocks to the markets. While this continues to be a key aspect of its work, the IEA has evolved and expanded. It is at the heart of global dialogue on energy, providing authoritative and unbiased research, statistics, analysis and recommendations. Today, the IEA’s four main areas of focus are: Energy security: Promoting diversity, efficiency and flexibility within all energy sectors; Economic development: Ensuring the stable supply of energy to IEA member countries and promoting free markets to foster economic growth and eliminate energy poverty; Environmental awareness: Enhancing international knowledge of options for tackling climate change; and Engagement worldwide: Working closely with non-member countries, especially major producers and consumers, to find solutions to shared energy and environmental concerns. China is not a member of the IEA, but the IEA maintains close relations with non-member states, including with China.

  • U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center http://www.us-china-cerc.org/ The United States and China are the world’s largest energy producers, energy consumers and greenhouse gas emitters. The clean energy sectors in both countries are growing rapidly. The priorities of the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center reflect important areas of opportunity for both countries. In the United States, more than three-quarters of electricity generated is used to operate buildings. In China, if present trends continue, floor space equal to the entire U.S building stock will be built in the next 20 years. Both countries have large domestic coal reserves and use coal to generate the majority of their electricity (roughly 50% in the US and 80% in China). The two countries are also the world’s largest automobile markets and oil consumers, both importing more than half the oil they consume. Development and deployment of clean energy technologies will play a central role in helping both countries meet energy and climate challenges in the years ahead. The CERC will also build a foundation of knowledge, technologies, human capabilities, and relationships in mutually beneficial areas that will position the United States and China for a future with very low energy intensity and highly efficient multi-family residential and commercial buildings.
