NRDC has been working closely with utilities in China to help them take active roles in the DSM implementation. In line with this effort, NRDC co-organized a capacity building training workshop with the China Southern Grid in Hainan from October 28 to 29, 2011. Over 80 participants who are all from the China Southern Grid and involve in DSM work within their service area attended the training. The topics of this workshop included a combination of energy efficiency technologies and high-level overview of China’s energy efficiency policies and development trends. Mona Yew from the DSM team gave a presentation on California’s energy efficiency/DSM implementation practices with a focus on program evaluation, and Yuqi Li also presented on motor system energy efficiency. The training received highly positive feedback from the participants, and this workshop has become a good start for NRDC to collaborate with the China Southern Grid to help them meet the targets set by the national DSM regulations through capacity building trainings.
