HC Chemical Network News, Chinese GDP by 2020, carbon intensity by 40% to 45%, is a get up that target the international, domestic efforts to target may be more and more demanding.
More stringent targets And decomposition of the “Eleventh Five-Year” as unit GDP energy consumption targets, China is considering how to decompose the carbon intensity index.
Carbon intensity (carbon dioxide emissions unit GDP), the Chinese government before the Climate Conference in Copenhagen commitments to the world of voluntary emissions reduction targets, will continue Energy Strength, after the discharge of major pollutants into the environment the people’s livelihood in the field of third-binding targets.

A month ago, the National Development and Reform Commission Secretary, Mr So said climate change, the beginning of 2010, to the “12 Five Year Plan” related to the preparation of research and layout.
He said, the carbon intensity index entry “12 5” should be established, as to how to enter, the next step to decomposition, is just to the regional decomposition, decomposition to the province, or relating to the industry, there are to be studied.
How to make objective, decomposition target to complete the State Council of binding targets, and improving the relevant statistics and indicators for monitoring and management system, is placed before the important task of policy makers, but also the next step is related to low-carbon Economy Propulsion.
“China’s GDP by 2020, carbon intensity by 40% to 45%, is a get up that target the international, domestic efforts to target may be more stringent.” NDRC Energy Research Institute of Energy Systems Jiang says director said.
The decision-making process, the planning of GDP to be achieved is an important basis for decision-making. 40% to 45% is also planning objectives and the actual occurrence of the GDP figures and planning the differences between the actual reduction will affect the ultimate goal.
“So far, the carbon intensity is not necessarily more liberal than the energy intensity.” Jiang says noted in 2005 as the base year, two years as the proportion of primary energy consumption in the recovery of coal, and coal’s carbon dioxide emissions the development of renewable energy to offset the emissions caused by the effectiveness, making the decrease in carbon intensity is not faster than the energy intensity.
General, energy intensity increased focus on measuring the energy efficiency of energy use, while the carbon intensity is by improving energy structure, focusing on improving the quality of energy use, and other areas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions countermeasures. From the policy area, carbon intensity of broader coverage.
For Jiang says worried about that, since the second half of 2008 for Economic crisis A series of pull policy objective driving the development of high-energy consumption industries. Within the next few years the task of saving energy has become more difficult, but also increased the uncertainty of the carbon emission targets.
Energy Research Center, Xiamen University, Lin Boqiang hold similar views. He did not think the carbon intensity in 2020 decreased by 40% to 45% of the target, than the “Eleventh Five-Year” energy intensity targets to be weak. He suggested to consider “12 5” plan, while the use of energy intensity and carbon intensity indicators. In his view, “12 5” period alone as a binding index of carbon intensity can be, if the same set of energy intensity indicators, to guarantee the continuity of the indicator. “So far, the only reference to the experience of China, from the ‘Eleventh Five’ plan.” UK Climate Group, said Wu Changhua, president of Greater China, “policy-makers realized that the policy must be clear.” She suggested two indicators system can be “12 5” or even “13 5” parallel planning.
And “Eleventh Five” unit GDP energy consumption index to encounter many obstacles to implement different, more inclined to Wu Changhua optimistic that, after a five-year “enlightenment”, decomposition of obstacles to implementation at the local target is not large. SABUNG AYAM
