Construction of Carbon Neutral Application Scenario Demonstration Base Project in Dalian Free Trade Area Having Started
        Construction of Carbon Neutral Application Scenario Demonstration Base Project in Dalian Free Trade Area Having Started
        On Feb. 23, 2021, with a floor space of 30,000 square meters and a floorage of 35,000 square meters, the demonstration base integrating photovoltaic power generation, electrolytic hydrogen production, vehicle charging, hydrogenation, oil and gas filling and other carbon neutral application scenarios in Dalian Free Trade Area commenced for construction. The project, applying comprehensively the current domestic most advanced BIPV photovoltaic power generation technology, electrolytic hydrogen production technology, hydrogen energy cell technology, hydrogen energy vehicle technology and the five-in-one new energy integration supply philosophy covering hydrogen, oil, electricity, gas and others than oil, will, after completion, will become the first national carbon neutral demonstration base with the most extensive and representative new energy application scenarios in China.
        On Sept. 22, 2020, the Chinese government proposed at the 75th UN General Assembly that China would enhance its national independent contribution intensity, adopt more effective policies and measures to strive to have carbon dioxide emission reach peak by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. In Dec. 2020, the Central Party Committee’s economic work conference made carbon peak and carbon neutrality attainment one of the key tasks of the current economic work.
        Dalian Free Trade Area, in carrying out the Central Party Committee’s decision and deployment, unswervingly practicing the new development concept and having green development as an important fulcrum of industrial upgrading, is soundly engaged in upgrading the "old trade name", developing deeply "the original trade name", cultivating and strengthening "the new trade name" as the “three major articles” for structural adjustment. It has focused on cultivating and forging a new energy cluster represented by Panasonic Battery, Toshiba Battery, developed and implemented Development Plan of Dalian Free Trade Area for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles and Related Industries, and commenced to construct the first hydrogen industrial park of Dalian. At present, around the carbon neutral demonstration base, Dalian Free Trade Area has also planned a new energy research and development, testing and production base of nearly 500,000 square meters, focusing on forging such new energy project industrial cluster as hydrogen energy equipment, lithium batteries, photovoltaic, etc.
        In the next step, Dalian Free Trade Area will promote green development, low-carbon development, circular development more consciously, and build a green industrial structure and a green development mode with high science and technology content, low resources consumption and less environmental pollution to form a new growth point of economic and social development.
