On August 11, the State Council issued the "Opinions on Accelerating the Development of Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Industries". This is the second consecutive time the State Council has launched policies to accelerate the development of energy conservation and environmental protection industries in less than one month.
The "Opinions" clearly pointed out to promote the industrialization of semiconductor lighting. Integrate existing resources, increase industrial concentration, cultivate 10-15 leading enterprises with core technologies, intellectual property rights and well-known brands, and build a number of industrial clusters with a complete industrial chain, and localized supporting key production equipment and important raw materials . Accelerate the research and development of core materials, equipment and key technologies, and focus on solving major technical issues such as heat dissipation, modularization, and standardization.
The "Opinions" clarified the development goals for the next three years, including an average annual growth rate of more than 15% in the output value of energy-saving and environmental protection industries. By 2015, the total output value of the energy-saving and environmental protection industry will reach 4.5 trillion yuan, becoming a new pillar industry of the national economy. Through the promotion of energy-saving and environmentally-friendly products, it effectively stimulates consumer demand; through the enhancement of engineering and technological capabilities, it stimulates the growth of social investment in energy-saving and environmental protection.
The "Opinions" clarified that focusing on key areas with wide market applications, great potential for energy conservation and emission reduction, and obvious demand-driven effects, the R&D, promotion and industrialization of related technology and equipment will be accelerated to promote the overall improvement of the development of energy conservation and environmental protection industries.
According to the "Opinions", energy conservation and efficiency enhancement in key areas will be promoted, including energy-efficient boilers and motors, new energy vehicles and semiconductor lighting. In fact, these areas are increasingly being regarded as new stimulus points for environmental protection investment due to the accelerated release of market demand in their respective downstream industries.
The analysis pointed out that the release of the "Opinions" has shown the urgency of the highest level to build the energy-saving and environmental protection industry into the pillar of the national economy. Under this policy signal, more detailed policies for industrial development will be introduced in the next stage. All sub-sectors will enjoy the benefits. By the end of the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan", the 4.5 trillion yuan industrial blueprint for energy conservation and environmental protection is expected to be realized.
