The 24th Conference on the Electric Power Supply Industry (CEPSI) will take place in Xiamen, Fujian province, from October 19 to 23, said China Electricity Council on Tuesday, co-organizer of the conference together with the Association of the Electricity Supply Industry of East Asia.
The CEPSI 2023 will have a variety of sessions and events, including technical visits, sub-forums, paper exchanges, as well as online and offline exhibitions under the theme of "Low Carbon Energy Powering a Green Future", said Xu Guangbin, director of the international cooperation department of the council.
Around 2,500 representatives from government agencies, AESIEAP members, international organizations, embassies and consulates, and enterprises from China and abroad will attend to explore opportunities for cooperation and sustainable development of the energy and power sectors, he said.
The conference will be crucial for expanding the power industry's worldwide impact amid the world's acceleration of decarbonization and the transition to green energy.
Chinese power companies are increasingly focusing on renewable energy projects such as solar and wind power globally, with major companies so far having invested in and constructed 16 power projects in markets participating in the Belt and Road Initiative, accounting for 66.7 percent of their total foreign power investment projects, the council said earlier.
Actual investment in the projects, which cover 10 countries and regions including Pakistan, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Indonesia, and Vietnam, reached about $1.95 billion, accounting for 57.7 percent of the total foreign investment by major Chinese power companies last year, it said.
