Jinan unveils carbon peak plan

Jinan, the capital of East China's Shandong province, recently unveiled its plan to have its carbon emissions peak by 2030, local media reported.

According to the plan released by the Jinan city government, significant progress will be made in improving the sustainability of the energy and industrial structure of the city during the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) period.

Energy efficiency in key industries will be greatly improved, coal consumption will be controlled, and a new power system featuring a greater reliance on renewable energy will be developed, thus laying the foundation for green, low-carbon, and circular development, the plan stated.

By 2025, the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption will be increased to 7 percent, and energy consumption per unit of GDP will be reduced by 14.8 percent compared to 2020.

During the 15th Five-Year Plan (2026-30) period, a modern energy system will be established. The development model for green, low-carbon, and circular industries will also take shape.

By 2030, the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption will exceed 12 percent, and carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP will decrease by over 68 percent compared to 2005, ensuring that carbon emissions peak by 2030.

The plan also outlines the implementation of 10 key projects, including the green and low-carbon transformation of the energy sector, energy-saving and carbon reduction, and the promotion of green and low-carbon technologies. By 2025, the installed capacity of photovoltaic power generation in Jinan will reach 5 million kilowatts.
