Prof. Wang Yibo gave a lecture on "Green Power Technology Innovation and Global Cooperation in response to climate Change"

On the morning of June 12, 2024, Wang Yibo, a researcher from the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was invited by Professor Huang Hui to give a lecture on the theme of "Green Power Technology Innovation and Global Cooperation in Response to Climate Change" at the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The lecture was held in Room 215 of the first Teaching Building.


The burning of fossil fuels emits a large amount of CO2, leading to global warming. On December 12, 2015, the Paris Agreement was adopted at the 21st United Nations Climate Change Conference (Paris Climate Conference), aiming to limit the global average temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius compared with the pre-industrial period, and strive to limit the temperature rise to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius. In recent years, it has received widespread attention around the world.

In the lecture, Wang Yibo briefly introduced several major sources of CO2 emissions, of which the energy sector accounts for about 85%, so to achieve the established goals of the Paris Agreement, it is necessary to achieve energy transformation and reduce the burning of fossil fuels. In 2015, the international community put forward the "Innovation Mission" initiative, and China was one of the first countries to launch the initiative. Wang Yibo clearly introduced the goals of the first phase (2015-2020) of the "Innovation Mission" : to double the government's scientific research investment in the field of clean energy, build a high-level international platform, and promote the development of clean energy innovation; The second phase (2021-2030) of the sixth Ministerial Conference on "Innovation Mission" issued the MI2.0 Innovation Declaration and two major innovation cooperation mechanisms "mission mechanism" and "innovation platform". After that, Wang Yibo spoke about three major challenges: Challenge 1: economical and reliable renewable energy generation technology; Challenge 2: Power system flexibility and market design; Challenge three: Power system integration, data and digitization. Then, researcher Wang Yibo introduced the next step of development ideas, in-depth international cooperation with developed countries, and the construction of a multilateral cooperation mechanism and platform of "self-oriented, for our use". At last, researcher Wang Yibo conducted exchanges and discussions with teachers and students on site, and received warm responses from teachers and students on site.

Dr. Wang Yibo is currently a researcher and doctoral supervisor at the Institute of Electrical Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is also the leader of the "14th Five-Year Plan" renewable energy technology key special expert group of the Ministry of Science and Technology, the expert group of the smart grid Science and Technology Innovation 2030 major project of the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the secretary-general of the photoelectric special Committee of the Chinese Renewable Energy Society. Commissioned by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2016, he established the Chinese Secretariat of "Innovation Mission" and served as the deputy director of the mission of "Green Power Future". In the past five years, he has presided over or participated in the preparation of more than 10 major consulting reports and held dozens of international conferences.
