Energy internet is becoming one of the hottest topics. During the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015, President Xi Jinping proposed a discussion on establishing a global energy internet to facilitate efforts to meet global power demand with clean and green alternatives. On February 2016, three departments (the National Development and Reform Commission, National Energy Administration, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of thePeople's Republic of China) have promulgated the Guiding Opinions on Promoting the Development of "Internet Plus" Smart Energy (the "Opinions"). On the other hand, Global EnergyInterconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO) isinitiated by State Grid Corporation of China, joint related enterprises, organizations, institutions andothers voluntarily on March 2016. Liu Zhenya, Former Chairman of State Grid Corporation of China was elected as the president of GEIDCO.He is pushing to build a global energynetwork and received a strong response.
Establishing global energy internet will provide unprecedented developmental opportunities, and kinds of types enterprises intend to enter this area. According to reports, energy internet will maintain the growth rate of 18.5% during the "Thirteenth Five Year Plan" (2016-2020), which will be one of the most powerful engines for development as China's economy has entered a period of new normal.
