On November 23, in order to continue to promote the update, upgrade and application of energy-saving standards, support energy-saving and carbon-reduction transformation in key areas and industries, accelerate the research and development, promotion and application of advanced energy-saving and carbon-reduction technologies, and resolutely curb the blindness of high-energy consumption, high-emission, and low-level projects develop. The National Development and Reform Commission and the State Administration for Market Regulation have publicly solicited opinions on the “Notice on Further Strengthening the Update, Upgrade and Application of Energy Conservation Standards (Draft for Comment)”. The comment paper mentions:
Accelerate the formulation and revision of a number of energy-saving standards in key areas.Organize and implement the “14th Five-Year Plan” 100 energy-saving and carbon-reduction standards improvement actions. In the industrial field,Accelerate the revision of mandatory energy consumption quota standards for petrochemical, chemical, steel, nonferrous metal, building materials, machinery and other industries, improve the mandatory energy efficiency standards for key energy-consuming products and equipment such as motors, fans, pumps, compressors, electric welding machines, and industrial boilers, and strive to achieve internationally advanced standards and indicators. In the field of energy,acceleratecoalcarbonDevelopment of energy-saving technology standards for clean and efficient utilization, utilization of new and renewable energy, oil and gas storage and transportation, pipeline transportation, and key equipment for power transmission and distribution. In the field of urban and rural construction, formulate and revise standards for green buildings, green buildings, and energy-saving rural residential buildings, and improve energy-saving product standards for buildings and municipal infrastructure. In the field of transportation, improve the standards for energy-saving and carbon-reducing design, construction, operation, monitoring, and evaluation of transportation infrastructure and transportation equipment. In the field of public institutions, speed up the formulation and revision of evaluation standards for energy-saving institutions, green schools, green hospitals, and green venues. In the field of agriculture and rural areas, accelerate the research and formulation of technical standards for energy conservation and carbon reduction in the production process of planting and breeding industries, and improve energy conservation and carbon reduction standards for facility agriculture and agricultural machinery.
Steadily increase energy consumption quota requirements for key energy-consuming industries.The mandatory energy consumption quota standards for key energy-consuming industries are divided into advanced values, access values and limit values. Among them, the advanced value is benchmarked against the leading level of energy efficiency in the domestic or international industry. In principle, its value should represent the energy efficiency level of the top 5% of the industry; the access value is the energy efficiency level that new capacity such as new construction, renovation and expansion projects must meet. The above value should represent the energy efficiency level of the top 20% of the industry; the limit value is the energy efficiency level that stock enterprises must achieve in production, and should be based on the principle of eliminating a certain proportion of existing high energy-consuming and backward production capacity. Basically eliminate about 20% of backward products and production capacity. For the industries involved in the “Energy Efficiency Benchmarking Levels and Baseline Levels in Key Fields of High Energy Consumption Industries (2021 Edition)”, the access values and limit values of the energy consumption quota standards should be coordinated with the current benchmarking levels and benchmarking levels.
Continue to improve the energy efficiency level of key energy-consuming products and equipment.The mandatory energy efficiency standards for key energy-consuming products and equipment are divided into 3 levels (some are 5 levels). Among them, the level 1 level should be the leading level of energy efficiency of similar energy-using products in China or internationally. In principle, its value should represent the energy efficiency level of about 5% of similar energy-using products and equipment; The basis for purchasing equipment for expansion projects, in principle, its value should represent the energy efficiency level of about 20% of similar energy-using products and equipment; level 3 (or level 5) is the minimum energy efficiency level threshold for energy-using products and equipment to enter the market, according to various The technical characteristics and energy efficiency status of energy-using products and equipment, in principle, at least about 20% of outdated energy-using products and equipment should be eliminated. For the products and equipment involved in the “Advanced Energy Efficiency Level, Energy Conservation Level and Access Level of Key Energy-Using Products and Equipment (2022 Edition)”, the mandatory energy efficiency standards of Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 (or Level 5) should be in line with the current advanced level , energy saving level, access level to maintain coordination.
Continuously expand the coverage of energy-saving standards.Accelerate the formulation and revision of energy-saving standards in the fields of new infrastructure, cold chain logistics, and new home appliances, and make up for the shortcomings of energy-saving standards in key areas. Improve the construction of the energy-saving standard supporting system, and promote the formulation and revision of standards in the fields of measurement testing, certification, analysis and calculation, energy efficiency assessment, energy system optimization, energy management system, energy performance assessment, energy audit, energy conservation supervision, energy conservation review, and energy conservation services. Coordinate the research and formulation of energy-saving standards and carbon emission-related standards, connect energy-saving standards and carbon emission-related standards and indicators from the perspective of the entire life cycle, and explore the inclusion of carbon emission-related indicators in energy-saving standards.
