Four Sino-Finnish Energy Sector Pilot Projects Announced

The pilot projects announced by National Energy Administration are the Energy Internet in Lunan, geothermal in Zhoukou, biomass gasification for coal fueled power plant in Huarun, and the Micro-energy grids in Nansha. Chinese and Finnish energy companies and other stakeholders will now launch concrete measures to carry out these four projects.   

In accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Finnish and Chinese ministries in June 2017, China's National Energy Administration opened a China-wide project application round, which attracted twenty applications in total.

 “We are engaged in long-term cooperation with the China's National Energy Administration, and from the very beginning we have been building on cooperation based on the strengths of both countries. Opportunities for cooperation in the energy sector were taken into account in the Joint Declaration signed during the state visit of the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, in 2017,” said Pentti Puhakka, Ministerial Adviser, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. 

After a preliminary shortlisting by China's National Energy Administration, the Finnish-Chinese group of experts selected the final four pilot projects.  The Finnish panel of experts, which consisted of representatives from Business Finland, universities and the corporate world, emphasized the importance of innovative solutions that feature an extensive company offering and that can be easily duplicated in different markets. 

“The Finnish companies participating in Business Finland’s Smart Energy Finland program offer innovative, reliable and clean solutions. The active participation of these companies in our activities in China has been essential for the creation of these pilot projects and for building cooperation based on trust,” concluded Helena Sarén, Program Director for Smart Energy Finland Program, Business Finland.
