Energy security was key to China' s ongoing urbanization and industrialization, and to the steady and relatively quick long-term economic development of the country, Li said.

He urged authorities to focus on energy conservation and environmental protection, enhance China' s energy technology innovation capabilities, optimize energy structures, and establish a modern energy industrial system.

Energy use efficiency should also be improved, he said.

Noting the rapid development in energy technologies and their large potential markets, the Vice Premier said the country should promote nuclear energy construction while ensuring its safety, and should develop hydro, wind, solar and biomass power in an orderly manner.

Efforts should be made to put new technologies into use, and to cultivate innovative capabilities to assure breakthroughs occur in energy sciences and in new technologies, he said.
