CQC Attended the 8th American-Chinese Energy Efficiency Forum7. November 2017
On October 13, 2017 the 8th American-Chinese Energy Efficiency Forum (EDF) took place in Denver, Colorado. The annual forum was established as an information exchange between the US and China in the area of technological advances of energy efficiencies. The event is done in cooperation with the US Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Bureau and the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). Participants included leading stakeholders from politics, business and nonprofit organizations. The discussions and lectures dealt with the topics of building and industrial efficiency, energy performance contracting, energy efficiency standards, energy management and more.
The director of the CQC (China Quality Certification Center), Mr. Lu Mei, also attended the forum. He signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on enhanced cooperation in the areas of energy management and increasing energy efficiency with the Northwest Pacific National Laboratory of the United States, which is considered an important step of both countries to cooperate in these areas. Common objectives include promoting and developing control mechanisms and relevant certifications, as well as establishing new technologies and common standards.
In order to promote energy efficiency in China, the CEL label was implemented in 2005 and now covers 33 energy-using products from 12 product groups in 5 different categories, including household appliances, industrial equipment, commercial equipment, office lighting products and electronic office products.
