Energy-saving, emission-reducing, and low-carbon economy have become a long-term development trend. The above trends have also led to a number of high-speed development of new industries. For example, wind power, nuclear power, smart grids, high-speed trains, and rail transit, these industries have set new requirements for instrumentation.
To achieve the goal of energy conservation and emission reduction, it is necessary to accurately collect, measure, and monitor and analyze energy in real time, and to control the load. This requires that the instrumentation, especially the energy metering instrument and the power automation management system products have high Intelligent, networked, and highly reliable.
Although many instrumentation suppliers' products cannot directly generate low carbon benefits, suppliers themselves can provide advanced instrumentation to increase user productivity, improve product quality, monitor emissions, and contribute to a low-carbon economy.
China's instrumentation industry is still in a relatively weak stage of overall strength, and we must pay attention to the improvement of the technological content of products. Among them, a very important direction is the product's intelligence. The intelligent industry is not only a low-carbon economy but also has advanced technology, which is in line with the current overall economic development direction. However, the weakest areas of intelligence in China and most in need of development are the basic industries of instruments, meters, and sensors. The advancement of the smart industry depends on the progress of basic industries such as production instruments and meters. Therefore, the instrumentation industry should seize the current opportunities and strive to develop new types of instrumentation products needed by new industries.
"Low-carbon economy" needs "low-carbon technology" as support
"Low-carbon economy" means the adjustment of energy structure, adjustment of industrial structure, and technological innovation, and promotes the development of a series of industries. The major support for a low-carbon economy is "low-carbon technology." Without advanced technology guidance, there will be no booming development of a low-carbon economy. Low-carbon technologies include electric power, transportation, construction, metallurgy, chemical engineering, petrochemical, etc., as well as the development of renewable energy and new energy, clean and efficient use of coal, exploration and development of oil and gas resources, coalbed methane, and carbon dioxide capture and storage. New technologies for effective control of greenhouse gas emissions.
The transition to a low-carbon economy has become a trend in the energy industry. High-energy-consuming equipment is certainly not suitable for future energy development needs. How to apply advanced technologies to equipment effectively is an issue that instrumentation companies must consider. The general trend of low-carbon economy brings not only opportunities but also more severe challenges to the instrumentation industry. For instrument and meter companies, whether or not they grasp low-carbon technologies is not a question of whether they can seize the business opportunities brought about by the low-carbon economy, but whether they can survive. At this time, the instrumentation industry, such as sailing against the water, will retreat if not enter. Enterprises that have mastered low-carbon technologies have not only seized business opportunities but also kept their own market position. Conversely, they not only missed opportunities, but were even eliminated by the market.
Under this circumstance, any enterprise that does not keep up with the situation and lacks new technologies will be swallowed up by the market tide. Enterprises that know how to assess the situation and give priority to advanced technology will gain the favor of the market. In short, catching up with the development of science and technology and seizing key technologies are the instrument companies that should be able to achieve the transformation of a low-carbon economy.
