The memorandum of understanding signed by the energy companies of China and the United States on November 17 can be said to be one of the most direct achievements of U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to China. GE Energy Group and Shenhua Group announced on the 17th that they have signed a memorandum of understanding on the establishment of a joint venture framework agreement. The joint venture will integrate GE's advanced technology in gasification and clean power generation and Shenhua Group's rich experience in the construction and operation of coal gasification and coal-fired power plant projects to provide advanced "clean coal" technology solutions for China

the media especially noticed that after the talks between the leaders of China and the United States, the two sides jointly issued a "China US joint statement" with a length of more than 6400 words, including 1782 words related to clean energy and low-carbon economy, and the two sides launched a number of specific cooperation measures on climate change, energy and environment, expressing the confidence of the two countries in turning to a low-carbon economy to the international community

the 782 words of residual pellets and powders repeatedly blown out of the exhaust port not only released a signal, showed an attitude, but also reached a consensus that the partners can achieve win-win results

in terms of energy consumption, the United States and China are similar. They are both large energy producers and consumers. Although the population is different, the energy consumption of cars, buildings and so on is very large, facing great pressure on energy and environmental protection. On the other hand, the United States and China are highly complementary in new energy and clean energy cooperation. China has market and manufacturing cost advantages in electric vehicles, building energy efficiency, and clean coal utilization. The United States has technology and industrial environment, and the two sides hit it off. Electric vehicles, building energy efficiency and coal are the three major areas in which cooperation between the two sides can play the most role. Now, as long as the system and cooperation elements are combined and standardized, the win-win results of China us new energy cooperation are worth looking forward to

this expected result is not wishful thinking, but benefits both sides. This time, GE and its Chinese partners signed a series of agreements, announcing the strengthening of cooperation in key infrastructure fields such as aviation, energy and transportation. A series of cooperation contents include: establishing an avionics joint venture with China Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC); Establish a locomotive diesel engine joint venture with CSR Qishuyan Locomotive Co., Ltd; Reach an agreement with the Ministry of Railways of China to seek to jointly participate in the global high-speed railway market competition, and carry out strategic cooperation with China Shenhua Group to expand the application of coal gasification technology in China

as Immelt, chairman and CEO of Ge worldwide, said: "These contracts have a common feature: they will bring rapid growth, promote the application of clean technology and create high-tech jobs. Whether expanding our existing partnerships in the fields of aviation, energy and transportation, or technical cooperation, they will bring us new business development opportunities. We believe that the implementation of these cooperation will not only protect and promote the employment of GE employees, but also create many domestic foundations in China New jobs in facilities. "

undoubtedly, key words such as rapid growth, employment opportunities, business development opportunities are the dawn of economic recovery that both the United States and China hope to see after the financial crisis. In the joint statement, the two sides agreed that the transition to a green economy and low-carbon economy is crucial, and the clean energy industry will provide a lot of opportunities for the people of the two countries in the next few years. The two sides have launched a number of initiatives in clean energy and environmental protection, including the establishment of a Sino US joint clean energy research center with half of the investment in the next five years; Launch the China US electric vehicle initiative, so that millions of electric vehicles will be put into use in the next few years, and start the technical cooperation agreement on efficient utilization of coal, renewable energy partnership, China US energy cooperation projects, etc

the appeal made by US Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke at the China us clean energy round table on the 16th is unforgettable: "the United States and China should work together to make clean energy the main engine of economic growth in the 21st century." It is also because of the consensus that it is obvious to all that the cooperation between the two countries in the field of energy, especially clean energy, has been accelerating in the past year. Especially during Obama's visit to China, the cooperation between domestic and foreign experimental machine manufacturers in the clean energy sector has launched the experimental machine dual operation system domain, which is more pragmatic, and the cooperation projects have also been implemented to specific departments and enterprises, which is more operable

according to the estimation of the US Department of Commerce, the scale of China's clean energy market will reach 555billion US dollars by then. China's focus is on clean energy technology. China has always hoped to balance Sino US trade by importing clean energy equipment and technology, but the high-tech export control implemented by the United States to China has hindered the progress of cooperation. According to the China US joint statement adopted this time, the two sides will establish a China US energy cooperation project, a partnership between government and industry, aimed at strengthening energy security and coping with climate change, and accelerating the application of clean energy technologies. To put it another way, the United States does see a huge market of 555billion US dollars in China. It is certainly a wise choice to trade technology for market. From a global perspective, the United States is not the most technologically advanced country in the field of clean energy, but due to the consideration of market development, appropriate deregulation of technology to seize the Chinese market is not only conducive to promoting in-depth cooperation between the two sides, but also a mutually beneficial choice. After all, today's world is no longer a unilateralist world, and economic globalization requires diversification. Cooperation must benefit both or more parties to play an important role in the process of building an energy Internet

in fact, 50% or 60% of both Obama's fiscal stimulus plan and Japan's fiscal stimulus plan are related to low carbon. Low carbon economy is an opportunity for every enterprise and industry, and Chinese enterprises should seize the opportunity. Taking the clean coal power generation technology as an example, this technology can reduce the cost of carbon capture and storage (CCS) to half that of ordinary coal-fired power plants, and will become the mainstream model of the coal-fired power industry in the future. If the technical advantages and experience of the United States are combined with China's equipment manufacturing capacity, it will achieve the cheapest emission reduction results. China's relevant equipment manufacturing enterprises can not only obtain orders in this cooperation, but also obtain opportunities for technological upgrading and structural adjustment

Obama returned home with fruitful achievements in his visit to China. While cheering the benefits brought by the United States and China United public, which is also the highest user level newspaper in the new material industry, we should quickly seize the opportunity, lock in the target and seize the market. Don't forget that while opening the door to cooperation, we have also introduced competition
