Recently, Zhou Changyi, Director of the Department of Energy Conservation and Comprehensive Utilization of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, told reporters that during the "12th Five-Year Plan" period, China will focus on key industries, key parks, key enterprises and key products, promote industrial energy conservation, consumption reduction, emission reduction and pollution control to a new level, accelerate the development of circular economy and remanufacturing industry and energy conservation and environmental protection equipment, and implement trade policies that encourage the export of resource-saving and environment-friendly products.

Recently, Zhou Changyi, Director of the Department of Energy Conservation and Comprehensive Utilization of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, told reporters that during the "12th Five-Year Plan" period, China will focus on key industries, key parks, key enterprises and key products, promote industrial energy conservation, consumption reduction, emission reduction and pollution control to a new level, accelerate the development of circular economy and remanufacturing industry and energy conservation and environmental protection equipment, and implement trade policies that encourage the export of resource-saving and environment-friendly products.
According to preliminary estimates, during the "11th Five-Year Plan" period, China's energy consumption per unit of industrial added value has dropped by more than 25%, and the industrial energy saving has exceeded 650 million tons of standard coal, supporting the annual growth of 11.57% of industrial added value with an average annual energy consumption growth of 6.98%. The positive results of industrial energy conservation and emission reduction have contributed to ensuring the completion of the energy conservation and emission reduction goals of the "11th Five-Year Plan".
But in the long run, China's industrial energy conservation and emission reduction work still faces a series of challenges. At present, China consumes 46% of the world's steel, 16% of energy and 52% of cement, but only creates about 8% of the world's GDP. For a long time, the extensive growth model, which mainly depends on the consumption of material resources and does not pay enough attention to the cost of resources and environment, needs to be fundamentally reversed.
In addition, the rapid growth of energy-intensive industries faces severe resource and energy constraints. In the first four years of the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan", China's steel output increased by 12.4% annually, cement output by 11.5% annually, and the added value of non-ferrous metal industry by 17.1% annually. The energy consumption of energy-intensive industries accounts for nearly 80% of the total industrial energy consumption. The rapid growth of energy-intensive industries drives the continuous increase of the total industrial energy consumption in China. Since 1996, China's industrial energy consumption has accounted for more than 70% of the total energy consumption of the whole society, while that of developed countries is only about 30%.
From the perspective of future development, according to the strategic goal of building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way by 2020, industrialization and urbanization will further develop. The "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" is still the key stage of China's industrial development. The consumption structure of residents will continue to upgrade, and the demand for industrial products will continue to increase. The proportion of China's heavy chemical industry will remain at a high level, and the demand for energy, transportation, raw materials, etc. will further increase, The total resource consumption will further increase, and the resource constraints faced by industrial development will further increase.
"The huge waste of waste heat and residual pressure in the industrial production process, the backward level of energy conversion and utilization technology, the serious environmental pollution, and the weak research and guidance of energy conservation and scientific energy use are the main problems in China's industrial energy use at present. Compared with the international advanced level, the energy utilization level in China's industrial field is generally low, the energy consumption per unit product has a large gap, and there is still huge space and potential for industrial energy conservation and consumption reduction."
