    Cannon @ 2016 Energy Forum in Beijing

China congress

A Sino-Italian Energy Forum focused on district heating technologies has been held in Beijing on April 8, 2016. Organised by a group of Italian multi-utility Companies – IREN, Utilitalia, A2A and Hera – in cooperation with the Chinese District Heating Association (CDHA) and under the patronage of the Italian and the Chinese Ministries of the Environment, the Italian Foreign Minister and the Italian Embassy in Beijing, the Forum conveyed to a panel of Chinese municipal multi-utility companies the Italian state-of-the-art solutions and technologies for the centralised production of heat and its capillary distribution in highly-populated urban areas.

The Cannon Group’s Companies active in the field of Energy Production were invited to present their latest experiences and achievements in this highly topical theme.

The meeting, held with a full-day program in the Chinese District Heating Association’s main offices, has been attended by more than 200 local specialists and administrators managing the environmental and economic aspects of the Chinese town’s heating systems.

After a formal and diplomatic morning session, during which the political and environmental matters have been detailed and discussed among the participants, the meeting has dealt in the afternoon with the technical aspects of the problem.
The environmental challenge posed by the current and future Chinese Five-Years Plans, the commitments made by the Chinese government at the recent Paris Climate Change Forum and the positive contribution that district heating and cogeneration can provide have been analysed. 
The Italian and Chinese District Heating systems currently in operation have been illustrated by the multi-utility companies invited to the meeting, presenting advantages and problems encountered during more than 20 years of operations.
During the focus session dedicated to the Italian technologies in district heating and environmental sectors, BONO Energia and BONO Sistemi – the Cannon Group’s Companies dedicated to the production of Energy and the use of biomasses – have illustrated a number of experiences acquired in the past 25 years of activity in this strategic niche of the Energy business.
Strong of prestigious references in Italy, France, Russia and other European countries, the two Cannon Companies have presented the technical solutions able to provide the best balance between operating costs and user’s comfort in a distributed-heating urban network.
A round-table panel among the representatives of local authorities, associations and suppliers of technologies allowed the participants to interact with the speakers and to better understand options and problems linked with the use of district heating systems in Chinese urban configurations with specific living habits.
