Global energy link pushed

THE China-proposed Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization inked five deals on Saturday to promote integrated, smart and clean grids.

Cooperation will focus on grid planning, fundamental research, policy coordination, project development and information sharing, according to the deals signed between GEIDCO and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, the African Union Commission, the League of Arab States and the grid management bureau with the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf.

The agreements will help create an integrated, smart and clean grid in Asia, Africa and countries along the Belt and Road, said Liu Zhenya, chairman of GEIDCO.

China suggested in September 2015 that the UN Sustainable Development Summit discussed forming the global energy interconnection platform to connect grids globally to smooth development, deployment and utilization of clean energy, with ultra-high voltage transmission as the backbone, said Liu.
