It has been practiced in Shanghai for a long time. There are also a variety of relevant incentive policies for government agencies. Some encourage the use of energy-saving technologies, and some encourage the use of contract energy management. However, for specific companies, they still feel that energy-saving power is not strong. Why is that?

Sometimes we hear such “complaints” of enterprises: The major policy aspect is to encourage energy conservation and emission reduction. However, in terms of the use of water, electricity, and natural gas in peacetime, there is still a lack of policy setting, and in some cases, the more energy-efficient the company is, The resource matching that can be obtained is more limited.

The manager of a large-scale hotel energy-saving engineering department calculated an account: If the hotel used an average of 25,000 tons of water per month in 2008, after energy-saving reforms in 2009, the average monthly water consumption would be saved to 22,000 tons, and in 2010 it would be even saved to 20,000. Ton/month, it should be said that it is a good thing. But there are new annoyances, because by 2012, the water consumption index set by the water sector is the weighted average of the average water consumption for the three-month period, which is the average monthly use of 22,300 tons of water. Even more troublesome is that if the average monthly actual water consumption of the hotel exceeds the target of 1,000 tons, the over-usage water fee will have to be charged at 5 times, that is, 5,000 tons; and if the hotel's actual water consumption is lower than this indicator, There are no incentives or reductions. Although this kind of setting can control the total amount of energy consumption, it gives enterprises the same as wearing a “sweeping curse.” The more energy they save, the tighter it may be, and it will inevitably cause problems for the company.

The same applies to electricity. Electricity charges of large enterprises consist of two parts, one is electricity expense, which is based on the actual electricity consumption; the other is basic electricity price, which is mostly settled according to the “contract electricity consumption” model. The so-called contractual power consumption is based on the actual needs of enterprises to agree that the power load power is the percentage of the transformer power, but can not be less than 40% of the transformer power, the number of appointments can only be higher than 40%. That is to say, assuming that the transformer power is 1000 kilowatts, then if the actual power used by the transformer exceeds 400 kilowatts, then the actual power used is charged; the actual power used by the transformer is less than 400 kilowatts, still charging at 400 kilowatts, but in fact, some Energy-saving and active companies use less than 40% of their power and can only pay more. There are similar situations in the use of natural gas by enterprises. If a company uses 1 million cubic meters of natural gas per year and does energy-saving reforms, it actually uses only 900,000 cubic meters of natural gas per year. However, since the contractual standards agreed at the beginning of the year are 95% of the agreed amount, the fees are still based on 950,000. Cubic meters come in. If you actually use more than 1 million cubic meters, the unit price of natural gas may be cheaper.

Under such a policy constraint, the more energy-efficient a company is, the more it is stuck in the throat. How can an enterprise still have energy-saving enthusiasm? Companies spend a great deal of their energy to make energy-saving technological transformations, but achieve energy-saving effects. Afterwards, it was subject to practical restrictions; on the contrary, such policies were like hotbeds. Those companies that did not have good energy-saving effects did not have corresponding restraining mechanisms, and they could continue to operate comfortably in “warm beds”. Companies have called for not only the government to support energy conservation, but also companies that have awareness of energy conservation. All parties involved in public utilities should also have corresponding supporting measures to follow up, so that the entire energy conservation chain can really be recycled.
