Background of New Energy Tech 50

New energy technology refers to innovations that enable more efficient use, transmission, storage and conversion of energy and reduce the environmental impacts associated with energy use. The development of the energy sector is of fundamental importance to China's economic growth, and technological advances will further improve the energy system's efficiency and reduce carbon intensity. Digitization is the main driving force for China's carbon emission reduction and energy transformation.

Moreover, the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CCP) stated that China would continue to carry out coordinated industrial restructuring, pollution control, ecological conservation, and climate response and promote concerted efforts to cut carbon emissions, reduce pollution, expand green development, and pursue economic growth.

China plans to peak carbon emissions by 2030 and reach carbon neutrality by 2060. It is suggested that the planning and development of a system for new energy sources will be facilitated, involving global governance in response to climate change. It will work actively and prudently toward reaching a peak and neutrality of carbon emissions.

EqualOcean believes that with the development of "carbon peak, carbon neutral," the green industry has become an important investment area, and the combination of new energy and technology will bring more opportunities for the development of the industry.

On the basis of the above, EqualOcean released the "2022 China New Energy 50" which covers companies from seven core sub-sectors, namely solar energy, wind energy, hydrogen energy, power battery, energy storage, smart grids and new energy vehicles & parts.
