Energy Awareness Month, 2011 and “Low-carbon Community” event are launched on 31st May. Ningbo will thus elect 100 leading energy-saving companies this year in order to promote energy-saving awareness among industries. During the launching ceremony, thousands of key energy-consuming enterprises give their promises to save energy. Two thousand local citizens from Huayan, Hechen and Fuming communities respond actively to this event and the concept of “Low-carbon Community”. Yu Hongyi, vice mayor of Ningboalso attends the launching ceremony.
This year marks the 4th anniversary of Energy Awareness week’s upgrade to Energy Awareness Month. The event this month will carry forward the theme of “Saving Energy and Achieving the Goals”. It was reported that Ningbo will be challenged by 1 million kw electricity shortages this summer. And this figure will probably reach 1.2 million kw as a result of possible breakdown of large-capacity generator, difficulty in electricity purchase and extreme weather.
According to Municipal Energy-saving Bureau, Ningbo will elect 100 modal enterprises this year which have standard energy-saving regulations, advanced technologies and efficient energy consumptions. The appraisal will be strictly in line with industry consumption standard and output consumption standard.
Everyone is responsible for saving energy. The electricity consumption growth of Jiangdong District is 2% higher than average national growth. Therefore, Jiangdong District launched the event of “Low-carbon Community”. In the opening ceremony, Huayan Community advocated their efforts in guiding the city’s awareness of energy-saving, participating in low carbon life and promoting ecological civilization.
