During the meeting, Mr Gao Dongsheng, MIIT’s Deputy Director General of the Energy Efficiency and Resources Utilization department, stressed the need for China’s boiler industry to further improve its energy efficiency and welcomed collaboration with US industry. IEE WG members Honeywell, ST. Johnson, LP Amina and GE shared their expertise with their Chinese colleagues regarding boiler system operation and management efficiency, steam efficiency in thermal power networks, fuel supply system and development trends.Chinese industry participants included Taishan Group, Harbin Hongguang Boiler Group Co., Ltd, Jiangsu Shuangliang Boiler Co., Ltd, CECEP Liuhe Talroad Environmental Technology Co., Ltd, Shougang Corporation.
The ECP IEEWG is co-chaired by Dow Chemical with the members representing four industry value chains: raw material and formulated solution suppliers; equipment and control system manufacturers; data management and information integration providers; and benchmarking, assessment and engineering solutions providers. The workshop marks the beginning of a series of cooperative initiatives with MIIT and ECP on energy efficiency.
