The Second U.S.-China Strategic Forum On Clean Energy Cooperation concluded here Wednesday with a series of big clean energy deals signed and companies from both countries having discovered shared goals and interests.

The two-day gathering included panel discussions and working group meetings under the theme of U.S.-China relations in the next decade, bringing together more than 200 government leaders, business executives and experts from both countries to discuss an array of energy collaboration topics.

More than ten clean energy cooperation deals were inked during the forum, fresh evidence of the enhanced bilateral collaboration in the private and public sectors.

China's ENN Group and U.S. Duke Energy had signed an agreement on the "Future Energy Technology Demonstration Platform" in an effort to promote the joint development of technologies to help build green cities in China and the United States.

U.S. General Electric (GE) and China Shenhua Energy Company have announced to set up a joint venture to combine GE's expertise in gasification and cleaner power generation technologies with Shenhua's expertise in building and operating gasification and power generation facilities.

The joint venture will seek to advance cleaner coal technology solutions for industrial chemicals, fuels and power generation.

U.S.-China practical cooperation in clean energy could surely expand and deepen the convergence of interests, and serve as a role model for strengthening bilateral partnership in other areas, Wu Jianmin, co-organizer of the forum, told Xinhua Wednesday.
