Hu Jianmin Met with Chief Executive of CSIRO
On August 14, Hu Jianmin, Vice President of China Huaneng
Group, met with Dr. Megan Clark, Chief Executive of CSIRO (the
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization).
The two parties exchanged opinions on further strengthening
technological cooperation in the field of energy.
Hu Jianmin introduced Huaneng's efforts on energy conservation
and emission reduction, and also China's recent policies on
emission reduction. He said, as the second largest power
producer in the world, China Huaneng Group has always attached
great importance to clean development; with all new units
applying world-leading power equipments and technologies.
Meanwhile, China Huaneng Group continuously speeds up power
sources restructuring to stably raise the proportion of
renewable energy including hydropower, wind power, solar power
and so on, and extensively carries out technical cooperation
programs with domestic and foreign research institutions to
actively develop clean power technologies such as IGCC, HTGR
(high temperature gas cooled reactor) and so on. In future,
China Huaneng Group plans to strengthen research and
development on generating units with advanced parameters and
larger capacity, so as to enhance effectiveness and promote
green development. Hu Jianmin expressed his hope to strengthen
cooperation between the two parties, and to set up a
long-lasting mechanism for regular technical exchange, so as to
jointly make more contributions to dealing with global climate
change and safeguarding energy security.
Dr. Clark gave a brief introduction on CSIRO's important
research fields, Australian carbon tax regulation, and its
impact on Australian energy companies. She said, Australia is
the largest coal exporter in the world; as the largest R&D
institution in Australia, CSIRO owns world advanced
technologies regarding upgrading coal-fired efficiency, gas
power technology, post-combustion carbon capture technology,
large-scale wind power storage, wind energy control system,
solar thermal power and so on. CSIRO highly values the
cooperation with China Huaneng Group, and hopes to conduct
regular technical exchange with China Huaneng Group, and
further expand the cooperative fields.
