GIEC Experts Attend the 2nd Energy Forum co-hosted by National Energy Bureau and Chinese Academy of Engineering


Co-hosted by National Energy Bureau and Chinese Academy of Engineering and undertaken by Energy and Mineral Engineering Department, CAE and Shenhua Group Corporation Ltd., the 2nd Energy Forum was held in Beijing from Dec. 19th to 20th. With the theme of “Promoting clean and efficient utilization of fossil energy”, the forum attracted over 300 experts, including Prof. Yong Chen, Prof. Nengyou Wu, Prof. Xiaosen Li, Dr. Huhetaoli, and Dr. Gang Li from Guangzhou Institute of Energy Conversion, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

In 2011, the Chinese Academy of Engineering listed the programs of “Strategy research in clean, efficient and sustainable development and utilization of coal in China” and “Strategy research in unconventional natural gas hydrate development and utilization” as key advisory projects of the year. The projects were divided into 13 different tasks with over 60 academicians and 800 experts doing deep researches in each field. This forum aims to provide an opportunity for experts to exchange research outcomes, discuss development strategies, technical progresses and policy supports for fossil energy in China, thus further promoting the efficient and low-carbon energy utilization in China.

Prof. Yongchen and Prof. Xiaosen Li delivered academic reports respectively named “Energy Conversion Technology in coal utilization in High Energy Consumption Industry” and “3D Experimental Simulation Research of Methane Gas Hydrate Exploitation with Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage Method”. And the reports of Prof. Nengyou Wu and Dr. Huhetaoli, namely “Strategy Research of Gas Hydrate Exploitation and Development in China” and “Research in Energy Conservation during Coal Utilization in Steel Manufacturing Industry”, were being displayed as posters.

The forum expresses the strong need for efficient development and utilization of energy in order to establish a low-carbon and environment-friendly society. It is also a good platform for governmental departments, energy corporations, research institutes to exchange ideas and propose suggestions for national energy policy-making and industry development.
