On August 19, Deputy Party Secretary and Mayor Li Gang hosted a thematic meeting to take note of the work carried out in the city's hydrogen energy industry, and study and deploy the development plans. Li Gang emphasized the importance of hydrogen energy in implementing the new strategy of energy safety of "four reforms and one cooperation". Correspondingly, Liupanshui must be adequately prepared, speed up the development of hydrogen energy industry, and have a role in the provincial market.
Deputy Director of the Municipal People's Congress and Chairman of Liupanshui Finance Bureau Li Wenxu, and Deputy Mayor He Shu attended the meeting.
After hearing about the work of relevant departments, Li Gang pointed out that, the provincial government had signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Dongfang Electric Corporation on April 21, emphasizing the priority attached by the provincial government to hydrogen energy development. On April 22, the municipal government hosted a meeting to implement the decisions made by the provincial government and accelerate the process of hydrogen energy development. After that, concerned departments at all levels, by following the instructions of the provincial and municipal governments, take the opportunities and race against time to shape the way forward, ensuring tangible results in the groundwork. We must take persistent and effective measures to fulfill our task and boost the transformational development of the city.
Li Gang emphasized that, as an industrial city developed during the Third-Front Movement that is rich in crude energy materials, Liupanshui is better equipped for the development of hydrogen energy. We must speed up project construction, including the establishment of hydrogen purification base, hydrogen energy distributive town, as well as the pilot projects of hydrogen powered buses and integrated energy stations, to lay a solid foundation for the whole industrial chain development. We must also expand the application, so as to promote production in larger scale with lower cost, and promote sustainable development of the industry. In the perspective of technologies, we must learn the successful practices of other cities, strengthen the cooperation with national high-level research and scientific institutes, and further improve the technological solutions related to the manufacturing, warehousing and transportation of hydrogen energy. We must take active measures to report the city's hydrogen energy development to higher authorities, guarantee the groundwork, and strive to make more projects being listed in the "14th five year plan" of the province. Besides, strengthened scheduling and supervision are also required. The leader group must prepare concise checklist to manage it work, and spare no effort to complete relevant issues as soon as possible.
Secretary General of the municipal government Luo Zixiang, leaders from departments under the direct supervision of the municipal government, Panzhou, Zhongshan, and energy sections, and managers of relevant enterprises also attended the meeting.
