On September 5 to 7, the 2023 International Forum on Energy Transition (IFET) was held in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, which was attended by more than 700 outstanding enterprises in the energy industry from 25 countries and regions.

The IFET is an energy diplomacy event hosted by the National Energy Administration and an important event set out to be held on the list of outcomes of the High-Level Dialogue on Global Development during the XIV BRICS Summit in 2022.

As of the first half of this year, China’s cumulative installed capacity reached 2.11 billion kWh, of which the total installed capacity of renewable energy reached 1.322 billion kW, exceeding that of coal power for the first time, Zhang said. The country’s industrial chain and supply chain has seen significant progress, and technologies such as wind power and photovoltaics lead the international community. In the future, China will leverage its energy resource endowment to promote the efficient utilization of clean energy. China is also willing to continue to join hands other countries to seize opportunities, catalyze the energy transition, safeguard global energy security, and strive to build a better community with a shared future for mankind.

The Global Clean Energy Partnership Initiative was then released and a ceremony was held to launch the IETC. Led by Wu Qingwen, Mayor of Suzhou, Yingli Solar and other 41 initiators took the stage and pressed the start button on the screen, announcing the official establishment of the IETC.
