On August 30, China Coal Cap Project and China Energy Conservation Association (CECA) co-hosted the Fourth Annual Conference on Dispersed Coal Management Workshop in Beijing. This workshop was supported by Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the Energy Foundation China (EFC) and the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF). The workshop released two research reports – “China Dispersed Coal Governance Report 2019” and “13th Five-Year Plan Mid-Term Building Sector Coal Consumption Evaluation and Key Later-Term Work Research”. The first report points out that China reduced 61 million tons of dispersed coal in 2018 and recommends China to conduct scientific planning and adjust reduction measures to local conditions to reduce dispersed coal consumption more effectively in 2019. The second report analyzes the coal consumption in the building sector during the 13th Five-Year Plan period and proposes recommendations for China’s future reduction work. It is estimated that coal consumption in the building sector would be 266 million tons of standard coal equivalent in 2020. About 300 participants from government agencies, domestic and overseas research institutes, universities, central and local experts, and enterprises attended the conference.
