Industrial Energy Efficiency & GHG Accounting
Industrial Energy Efficiency & GHG Accounting
China is prioritizing a low carbon, energy efficient economy and has added an industry-focused carbon intensity target to existing clean energy targets in its 12th Five-Year Plan. For China's GHG intensive industrial sector to achieve breakthrough gains in energy and GHG reduction, managers and policymakers alike need:
1) rigorous and consistent GHG accounting tools and standards;
2) the technical and institutional capacity to apply energy and GHG accounting information, tools, and best practices;
3) access to incentives and financing that support meaningful, large-scale, and sustained implementation; and
4) a sufficient pool of qualified environmental, energy, and emissions experts.
ISC's programs focus on building the capacity of industry and EHS managers as well as the energy efficiency and GHG accounting training in China.

International Industrial Energy Efficiency Training and Deployment Project in China
Capitalizing on China's commitment to reduce GHG emissions and improve energy efficiency, the Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC) and partners Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are implementing the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) International Industrial Energy Efficiency Training and Deployment project in China (China-IIEETD). The project achieves meaningful improvements in industrial energy efficiency in China by expanding the Chinese market for proven tools and technologies offered by DOE's Industrial Technologies Program (ITP), its U.S. corporate partners, and other leading U.S. energy service and technology providers.
The China-IIEETD project contributes to the objectives of the US-China Energy Efficiency Action Plan by:1) improving the energy efficiency of energy intensive Chinese industrial facilities; 2) increasing demand for and accelerating the deployment of state-of-the-art U.S. energy-saving and greenhouse gas emissions reduction technologies and services in China; and 3) improving China's ability to work with U.S. partners to fulfill its commitments to address climate change, enhance global energy security, and maintain a balanced and vigorous economic trade relationship with the U.S.
The project focuses on energy-intensive industries-chemicals, concrete, iron & steel, and aluminum-where two-thirds of the delivered energy used in China's industrial sector can be attributed. Training activities concentrate on two of the most highly industrialized regions of the country, the Pearl River Delta and the Yangtze River Delta, and in addition draw trainees and partners from some of the most energy intensive provinces including Shandong, and Henan. Key project elements:
- Adapt proven U.S. and DOE ITP energy assessment and management tools and technologies to the Chinese context, targeting the most energy intensive industries and industrial processes;
- Train Chinese energy auditors and managers in using these tools and technologies to perform energy saving assessments and implement best practices in reducing energy use;
- Collaborate with universities, training centers, and energy conservation centers to develop training programs that will expand the industrial energy efficiency market in China; and
- Work with U.S. companies, Chinese factories, and energy service corporations to identify opportunities to deploy leading U.S. energy technologies and services in the Chinese market.
The ISC team is collaborating with several key Chinese government and industry stakeholders. Technical/training partners include the University Alliance for Industrial Energy Efficiency, the National Energy Conservation Center, and ISC's Environment, Health & Safety Academies.
