Reception and Keynote:  The Future of US - China Energy and Economic Cooperation 

During the first round of US-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue this July, China’s Vice Premier Wang Yang pointed out that, “as world’s two largest economies, a good cooperation between US and China will not only benefit the corporations and people of the two countries, but also benefit the welfare of the world. Cooperation is the only correct option for the two.” As President Trump finishes his first China visit, let us see what the next step and the long-term economic relationship will be.


Keynote:  US - China Energy and Environment Cooperation

We are entering the last year of “the Ten-Year Framework for Energy and Environment Cooperation”. Reviewing the past ten years, US and China have been profoundly fruitful in their cooperation in energy and environment under this framework, especially for their achievement in energy efficiency and vehicle electrification. Today, we come together to revisit the success of this cooperation, and envision the new challenges and opportunities for the cooperation in the next decade.


Session 1: Global Vision – Mobility in Transition

To fulfill “Paris Agreement”, France, Germany, Norway, Netherland, U.K., and India have all proposed plans to ban sales of new gasoline and diesel cars in recent future. The EV markets in US and China are also burgeoning. The emergence of new car companies advances the competition of vehicle electrification; the rise and fall of oil price also influences the reform of auto industry; fast development of battery technology and the tightening emission standards are revolutionizing people in mobility; the rise of autonomous vehicle and sharing economy are turning future cars into “computer on the wheels”. The internal combustion engine has shaped our modern life, but it is also reaching the end of its life. Therefore, a global vision will bring the EV market a more organic development and prosperity. But, as the Economist reminds, it will be a bumpy road and please buckle up.


Session 2: National Ambitions in EV – Road to Zero Emission

2017, China has already become the leader of global EV and battery market. China’s gross EV sales in 2017 will reach 750,000, almost half of EV sales worldwide. The markets for passenger cars and commercial cars are both growing. Besides domestic car brands, world leading automakers also setup joint-ventures in China. Recent joint-ventures like Volkswagen-JAC, Ford-Zotye, Renault-Nissan with Dongfeng, and Daimler’s strategic cooperation with BJEV mark a meaningful step. In the US, GM and Tesla have also launched their champion models, aiming to broaden market-share. It is a competition within the EV industry, but also a battle between the traditional and emerging. In 2017, the shipment of China’s power battery takes up ~70% of the global market, but problems like technology paths, production capacity, product quality and safety, and the future development all concern the market. With improving policies and technology upgrade of the entire industry chain for car, battery, vehicle electronics and infrastructures, the future development of the EV industry will be spectacular.


Session 3: Diverse Development – Energy Storage as a Service

The fast expansion of global EV market has given rise to large scale of technology innovation and the scale-up of power battery industry. While the development of battery recycling and gradient utilization will lower the cost of battery storage, we should still map out plans for solution to the problems it brings. The introduction and promotion of battery storage system, the integration of storage system with solar and wind power, the rise of micro-grid and smart distributed energy system, and the promotion of hybrid wind and solar self-generation model, on the one hand bringing a more diverse development, but on the other fostering a changing relationship with utility companies. This will facilitate the transition of entire upstream and downstream of the new energy industry. When the PV industry is looking for new opportunities for growth, the integration of solar PV and energy storage model points out the potential market. However, as incentives are limited and decreasing, what the energy storage industry will be in the future?
