世界资源研究所工业能效融资研讨会在沪顺利召开并取得圆满成功


  为期一天的工业能效融资研讨会于2011年3月29日在上海闵行莘庄工业区顺利召开。本次研讨会由美国国际发展署和美铝基金会资助,由世界资源研究所(the World Resources Institute)、上海交通大学能源研究院、上海市闵行区经济委员会以及上海市能效中心共同举办。


来自55家工业企业、政府部门、银行、节能服务公司、节能减排咨询公司和非盈利机构的74位代表参加了此次研讨会。其中,参会的工业企业代表来自在上海地区34家工业企业,包括45位能源主管、财务经理、厂区经理、EHS(环境健康安全)经理、董事长顾问以及设备主管。


此次研讨会进行了广泛和深入的探讨和分析:着重介绍了作为中美气候行动伙伴计划(PCA)项目重要子项目能效融资试点捆绑组合项目;行业专家深入解析了能效融资和合同能源管理模式,具体分析了外部能效融资和合同能源管理对业主企业的好处与风险;与参会企业热烈具体地探讨了捆绑融资的具体路径和对业主工业企业的好处。


此次工业能效融资研讨会世界资源研究所中国能效融资项目-工业企业能效融资能力提升及中小规模能效项目捆绑融资的一个关键活动,在国家和各级政府正积极推进合同能源管理模式,促进节能的大背景下召开,与会代表反应积极强烈,取得了圆满成功。会议反馈表显示,17家与会的工业企业对此项目表示浓厚的兴趣,希望参与捆绑融资试点。同时,上海市闵行区政府亦表示将会继续大力支持此项目。接下来的几个月,项目重点放在愿意参与捆绑试点的工业企业进一步接触,选定5-6家上海市工业企业,与企业共同商讨实施试点项目的具体细节,收集整理潜在能效单体项目资料,开发和向预选出的节能服务公司发布方案征询书等。

世界资源研究所与上海交通大学、闵行区经委等其他战略合作伙伴们一道努力,圆满组织完成了本次工业能效融资研讨会。本次研讨会的圆满举办,标志着项目向最终目标迈出了一大步。整体项目的顺利实施,将探索出一个可复制的新模式,加快工业企业能效投资步伐,帮助中国工业企业实现节约能源和减排温室气体的战略目标。

 

 

China Energy Efficiency Financing Pilot Project is Fruitful


The one-day workshop on Better Access to Finance for Industrial Energy Efficiency was held in the Xinzhuang Industrial Park, Minhang District, Shanghai on March 29, 2011. Funded by USAID and the Alcoa Foundation, the workshop was co-hosted by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and its strategic local partners, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the Economic Commission of Shanghai Minhang District, and the Shanghai Energy Efficiency Center.


The workshop was well-received by the 74 participants. 45 of these participants were representatives of plant managers, energy managers and engineers, finance managers, EHS managers, advisors to Chairman of the board, etc. from 34 Chinese, American, and other-international companies with Shanghai facilities. Others were representatives from financial institutes, NGOs, consulting firms, and pre-selected ESCOs.
The workshop introduced the pilot energy efficiency financing bundling project which is an initiative of the US-China Partnership for Climate Action (PCA) program. Experts presented on the topic of energy efficiency financing and energy performance contracting (EPC) and analyzed the benefits and risks to host companies of external energy efficiency financing and the EPC model. Experts and other workshop participants discussed in detail the methods and process of bundling energy efficiency projects for financing in addition to the benefits which host industrial companies can achieve by participating in the bundling pilot project.


This workshop was well timed with the Government’s new approach to encourage energy performance contracting. As a key event of the WRI China Energy Efficiency Financing Project-Building the Financing Capacity of Industries and Bundling of Small and Medium Sized EE Projects for Financing, the workshop was held successfully. Seventeen industrial companies expressed strong interest in participating in the project. The Economic Commission of the Minhang District Government confirmed that they will continue to support the project and will help secure participation of industrial companies in the district in the pilot. In the next few months, WRI and partners will further reach out to those industrial companies who have showed interests in participating in the bundling pilot, collect the information of individual potential energy efficiency projects, and develop and issuing a request for proposal to finance and implement the portfolio of energy efficiency projects to attract proposals from qualified ESCOs. 

WRI, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Economic Commission of Minhang District (Shanghai), and Shanghai Energy Efficiency Center worked very closely and made the workshop a success. This convening of key partners and stakeholders allowed us to make important progress towards the project’s ultimate goal of exploring new models to accelerate investment in industrial energy efficiency projects that can be replicated in other regions and thus achieving energy savings and GHG emission reductions of Chinese, US, and International industrial plants in China.
