2018 Wood Mackenzie Beijing Cross Commodity Forum 伍德麦肯兹北京跨商品分析论坛

  • Beijing, People's Republic of China
China is at the forefront of global energy and mobility transition. It is adding solar and wind plants and electric vehicles at a pace faster than any other market in the world. It is also a major source of oil demand growth. At the same time, China is investing heavily in gas production and transmission infrastructure, LNG terminals and energy storage applications. These initiatives are central to China's decarbonisation and environmental strategy, and will shape global commodity markets. 中国正处于全球能源及交通转型的最前沿。中国推动光伏、风电和电动汽车发展的步伐远快于其他国家。作为全球原油需求增长的重要市场,中国也在加大对天然气开采、储运,液化天然气接收站以及储能设施的投资。这些举措是帮助中国实现清洁低碳发展战略的核心,必将深刻影响全球大宗商品市场未来的走势。 We will discuss these topics and present our latest views at Wood Mackenzie's Cross-Commodity Forum in Beijing on September 13, 2018 at the China World Hotel. 我们将在2018年9月13日举行的伍德麦肯兹跨商品分析论坛上与您分享我们最新的行业观点。
