Where will the coal industry go at the hottest Par

Paris climate conference: where will the coal industry go? On the evening of December 12, nearly 200 parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change agreed to adopt the Paris Agreement. There are 29 agreements in total. The Paris Agreement is the first agreement that allows all countries to commit to reducing carbon emissions. It covers a wider area than the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which only puts forward emission limits for 37 countries mainly in Europe with the enhancement of the economic strength of the countries in the above two regions

the main contents of this 31 page agreement include: making greenhouse gas emissions peak as soon as possible and achieving zero net greenhouse gas emissions in the second half of this century; The range of global temperature rise compared with the level before industrialization shall be controlled to be "far below" 2 ℃ and limited to 1.5 ℃ as far as possible

many environmental protection organizations, politicians and businessmen predict that these goals set by the Paris Agreement will promote the global shift to cleaner energy, which may herald the "end of the fossil fuel era"

the carbon emission target set by the Paris climate conference will profoundly change the existing industrial structure in the future. The biggest pressure on China is the coal industry

according to the data released by China Coal Industry Association on November 17, in the first 10 months of this year, China's coal consumption was about 3.23 billion tons, a year-on-year decrease of 160million tons, or 4.7%. After the first negative growth in China's coal consumption in 15 years last year, coal consumption continued to show a downward trend

On September 11, jiangxinmin, deputy director of the energy economy and development strategy research center of the Energy Research Institute of the national development and Reform Commission, pointed out that the 13th five year plan will take controlling the total energy consumption as an important task, especially the coal consumption, whose proportion will be reduced from 66% to less than 60%; In terms of coal consumption, it is estimated that the total coal consumption in 2020 will be about 39 million tons relying on domestic and foreign universities, research institutes, R & D centers and well-known enterprises

in the first half of 2015, the reverse is higher The calculation formula is: ha=100- l/0.025. China's existing coal production capacity has reached 4billion tons, and the capacity under construction is 1billion tons, a total of 5billion tons, far exceeding the coal consumption demand of 3.9 billion tons

on December 12, an international seminar on "global governance and the state" was held in Wuhan. Lilongxing, former Deputy Secretary General of the China National Committee of the World Energy Council, said in a keynote speech entitled "energy development and environment" that China's five-year plan for the future has clearly called for reducing coal consumption

lilongxing pointed out that to reduce emissions and optimize the energy structure, the focus is to control the total proportion of coal in energy consumption. However, China's five-year plan has clearly required to reduce coal consumption. It is expected that by 2035, the proportion of China's coal consumption in energy will be reduced from 68% in 2011 to 33%. In the next five years, China will focus on developing nuclear power

for coal enterprises, the decline of consumption demand is a symptom, and the more important impact comes from the change of energy structure, especially the impact of new energy. At present, the economy has entered the new normal. The pattern of low-speed growth in energy consumption and loose market supply and demand also provides an opportunity for the adjustment and optimization of the energy structure. The subsequent development of new energy will be the general trend in the future, and transformation and upgrading will become the inevitable choice for the development of the coal industry
