Chen Quansheng, Counselor of the State Council

Market should play a decisive role in energy conservation and emission reduction and market rule ought to be respected since energy conservation and emission reduction are closely connected with the economic sector.

It is advisable that some professional energy conservation corporations are established to promote relevant efforts, as they would be driven by personal gains to seek for room of energy conservation, technical innovation and benefits.

Energy conservation environment in China still faces major problems including inadequacy in legislation, standardization system and lack of technical reserves.
