On the morning of August 27, the 2022 World Conference on Clean Energy Equipment, co-hosted by the People's Government of Sichuan Province and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, commenced in Deyang. Ding Zhongli, Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and Chairman of the Central Committee of the China Democratic League, delivered a speech and announced the opening of the conference. Wang Xiaohui, Secretary of the CPC Sichuan Provincial Committee, and Tian Yulong, Member of the Party Leading Group and Chief Engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, delivered speeches. Megyessy Peter, Former Prime Minister of Hungary, and Fabrizio Hochschild, Former Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, delivered video speeches. Huang Qiang, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Sichuan Provincial Committee and Governor of the People's Government of Sichuan Province, presided over the opening ceremony. 

Ding Zhongli congratulated on the holding of the conference. He pointed out that President Xi Jinping has made a solemn commitment to the international community on behalf of China to strive to peak China's carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. President Xi Jinping has repeatedly advocated that the international community should accelerate the transition to low-carbon energy, promote a more robust, green and healthy global development, and he calls for joint efforts to build a clean and beautiful world. To achieve the carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals, China needs to make continuous efforts in the R&D of clean energy technology, the manufacturing of clean energy equipment and the construction of clean energy supply system to promote the upgrade of clean energy technology and equipment steadily. 

Ding Zhongli pointed out that Sichuan has clear advantages in the field of clean energy. The conference, held in Sichuan, will have a profound impact on the development of the clean energy equipment industry in Sichuan and China. Sichuan should cement its advantages in the industry, promote open cooperation, make good use of the role of leading manufacturers of clean energy equipment, actively carry out joint R&D internationally, promote the innovation and cooperation of the whole industry chain, and strive to drive the upgrading and development of related industries in China. To build on the existing achievements, Sichuan should accelerate the research on "stranglehold technologies" in the field of clean energy, make efforts to improve the ability to manufacture relevant equipment and continue to enhance the core competitiveness of the industry. We must be forward-looking and bring in emerging fields, carry out research on new renewable energy technologies and equipment, promote the integrated development of energy storage technologies, and strive to form an industrial pattern that develops synergistically with existing dominant fields. Sichuan needs to speed up the promotion and application of technologies related to clean energy, promote the integration of power, grid, load and storage and technologies that can ensure the supply of different energy sources, and increase supports for the promotion and application of the first major technology and equipment. It is necessary to promote digital empowerment, push the in-depth integration of the energy revolution and digital revolution, and use digital technology to significantly improve the effectiveness of energy conservation and emission reduction. 

On behalf of the CPC Sichuan Provincial Committee and the People's Government of Sichuan Province, Wang Xiaohui extended his welcome to all the guests present at the conference and expressed his gratitude to friends at home and abroad who cared about and supported the development of Sichuan. He said that in today's world, a new round of energy revolution with green and low-carbon energy as the core is booming, and the vigorous development of clean energy has become a broad consensus in the international community to address climate change and achieve green and sustainable development. General Secretary Xi Jinping, with profound insight into the general trend of world energy development, proposed a new energy security strategy of "Four Revolutions and One Cooperation", stressing that the promotion of new and clean energy development should be placed in a more prominent position. This points out the direction and path for us to promote the high-quality development of clean energy and the green transition of economic and social development. Sichuan is a large province in terms of economy, population and science education in China, and is also the largest base of hydropower development and the West-East Electricity Transmission Project in China. It is endowed with rich resources and is strong in innovation. The industry is gathering momentum, the market potential is huge, and the development of the clean energy industry is blessed with unique advantages and conditions. In the future blueprint of Sichuan, we put forward that we will cultivate industries related to clean energy and the industries that support and utilize clean energy and build a world-class base for clean energy. We are willing to work with you to seize the national strategic opportunities, embrace industrial growth, expand the scope for clean energy use, and make the "pie" of the market bigger to allow development gains to better trickle down to all. We will continue to build a market-oriented, international, law-based business environment so that everyone in Sichuan can invest with confidence, start a business with no worries, and live comfortably. 

Megyessy Peter said that over the years, he has witnessed the rapid development of China, which created one miracle after another. China has taken great strides in achieving its ambitious goals and has set a good example for other countries. China's development not only benefits the Chinese people, but also creates markets and investment opportunities for the world. In the face of the global challenge posed by climate change, the development of clean energy is the way to go. China's strong manufacturing sector is driving the rapid growth of the clean energy industry worldwide. The World Conference on Clean Energy Equipment brings together the world's top companies and experts to showcase the latest advances in the industry and creates a good platform for exchanges between various clean energy equipment industries around the world. One Earth, One Destiny. Let's join hands and create a better home together. 

Tian Yulong said that the CPC Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the development and utilization of clean energy. The development of clean energy is an important task to improve the energy structure, ensure energy security and promote ecological conservation. Sichuan Province is endowed with energy resources, and its enterprises are strong in manufacturing clean energy equipment and have made remarkable achievements in promoting low carbon energy structure, intelligent energy production and clean energy consumption. With leading enterprises such as Dongfang Electric Corporation, Deyang is accelerating the construction of a world-class manufacturing base for clean energy equipment. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will continue to support Sichuan Province in playing to its industrial strengths and promoting the development of clean energy equipment. This conference provides a good platform for international exchange and display of clean energy equipment and cooperation. With the help of this conference, we will show the world Chinese technology, Chinese equipment and Chinese solutions. It is hoped that the industry and entrepreneurs will strengthen cooperation, deepen interaction and exchange, seek cooperation and development, and join hands to make new contributions to the creation of a clean and beautiful world. 

"We are in an era where the fate of our future is at stake," says Fabrizio Hochschild. Faced with climate change, the challenge that will determine the fate of our time, there is no turning back. We need to create a global environment that supports long-term development policies and initiatives. This requires the full cooperation of multi-stakeholders across the globe. This conference is open to the world and is an important contributing force in promoting change for good. It is a milestone in the industry of clean energy equipment. It has inspired innovation and brought together industry, academia and policymakers around the common goal of serving a new era dedicated to creating an era that is fairer, safer, and more sustainable.
