Lin Boqiang: energy-saving emission reduction should be based on market means
China eleven “ five ” plan outline, eleven “ five ” energy consumption per unit of GDP during the period decreased about 20%, the total discharge of major pollutants reduced by 10%. The realization of eleven “ five ” energy saving and emission reduction targets, is a hard task put forward by the government administrative constraints, the relatively strong.
At present, the completion of the emission reduction targets smoothly, energy-saving targets is hard to do. Therefore, recently issued the "State Council on further intensify its efforts to ensure the realization of eleven “ five ” notice" the target of energy-saving and emission reduction efforts to support energy-saving emission reduction work, to ensure the realization of eleven “ five ” energy saving and emission reduction targets.
At the present stage Chinese such difficulty can not be underestimated. First of all need to face is stiff problems at the present stage of energy demand. In 2007, Chinese GDP accounts for the world total about 6%, while steel consumption accounts for more than 30% of the world consumption of steel, cement consumption accounted for about 55% of the world cement consumption. The fact that, Chinese is in city in urbanization process.
The recent development of dynamic energy China also showed rapid growth in energy consumption. From 2003 to 2008, the annual total energy consumption at close to double digit growth, the reason is the rapid growth of high energy consuming industry, also shows that the process of accelerating in the city.
Social conditions in different countries, the experience of the city changes a process to also will be different, but the process is every developed and middle income countries have experienced. A Xiamen University study China Energy Economic Research Center shows that, if the problem does not occur large catastrophic, into the city Chinese process of middle-income countries may also need 12 years time.
