From 13 – 16 September 2004, EREC in collaboration with CREIA (Chinese Renewable Energy Industry Association) and EWEA (European Wind Energy Association) successfully organised a series of workshops in Beijing, China.
The September meetings focused on CDM, the Chinese Renewable Energy Development and Utilization Law, which was currently under preparation and would be submitted to the Chinese Parliament by the end of 2004. The European delegation was invited to give comments to the draft law. The meetings on Wednesday and Thursday focused on wind power development and the opportunities for wind in China and attracted around 100 participants from both China and Europe.
The purpose of the workshop was to provide training to project developers coming from different regions and provinces of China. These developers are the driving forces of RES projects which were identified by IN-SHP (10) and CREIA in a previous phase of the project. The workshop grouped around 60 people and was attended during the first day by a delegation of European experts participating in a business mission organised by another SYNERGY project under the co-ordination of Berlin Energy Agency (BEA).
Apart from Chinese and European participants, people from Laos, Vietnam, India and Indonesia participated in the workshop in Hangzhou.
The 5-day training for key-actors, which focused especially on SHP, was organised by IN-SHP. Additional information is available on the workshop page.
The conference featured a talk on the new Chinese Renewable Energy Law. Additional information is available on the conference page.
