Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

In 2005, the Chinese government announced an ambitious goal of reducing energy consumption per unit of GDP by 20% between 2005 and 2010. One of the key initiatives for realizing this goal is the Top-1000 Energy-Consuming Enterprises program. The energy consumption of these 1000 large enterprises accounted for 33% of national and 45% of industrial energy use in 2005. Even though the Top-1000 Program was designed and implemented rapidly, it appears that it could make a significant contribution to the savings required to support China’s efforts to meet its 20% goal. This talk will describe the technical support provided by LBNL for the pilot program that preceded the Top-1000 program, as well as current research and technical support for the activities of the Top-1000 program, including development of a benchmarking and energy saving tool for Chinese cement plants. An analysis of the progress of the Top-1000 program to-date will be presented along with projections of potential savings from the program in 2010.
