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.

Based on above, the Energy Internet Development Forum 2017 will be hold on 29-30, June 2016 in Shanghai, aimed to providing a good learning and networking platform for industry peers to discuss the new challenges and opportunities. The participants will mainly come from power grids, energy producing companies, energy storage companies, energy transmission companies, energy consumer technology companies, and smart energy solution/technology providers. Others will come from government, organizations, institutions and universities.

1200 Key Recommendations for Both Evaluating and Implementing Large-Scale Interconnection and GEI
The GEI is an ambitious concept, but many of the building blocks of large-scale energy networks and an eventual GEI are available today. Large-scale Renewable Energy is a reality, and achievements in UHV power transmission are redrawing the boundaries of how much power can be cost-effectively transmitted and across what distances. Technologies on the horizon, will only expand this frontier further. Meanwhile, the vast potential for ICT and smart technologies in power systems has begun to be tapped.While the required technologies themselves are largely available or are in the pipeline, so what are the remaining challenges for large-scale, transcontinental or global energy interconnection? What are the barriers and challenges to be overcome as the process unfolds? The panel will explore a number of key recommendations for both evaluating and implementing large-scale interconnection and GEI.

Energy Internet Pilot Projects Introduction in China

On June 2016, the chief economist at National Energy Administration pointed out that promoting the demonstration projects will be one important area of future work. On December, the National Energy Administration carrys out the declaration and selection of Internet Plus Smart Energy Demonstration Project, which means these projects will enter into the implementation stage in next step. We will invite the main partner who is deeply engaged in the projects to introduce and analyze.
