Edited and Translated by Ma Xi, People's Daily Online

Recently, a guideline about the development of natural gas in distributed energy systems was released in China, which proposed that China will launch some demonstration projects of the gas-field distributed energy resources during the 12th Five-Year Plan.

About 1,000 distributed energy projects of natural gas will be constructed and around ten distributed demonstration areas with typical characteristics will be built.

The gas-field distributed energy resource utilizes natural gas to achieve a variety of uses through cooling, heating and power patterns. The utilization rate of the comprehensive energy is above 70 percent.

Compared with traditional energy sources, natural gas has advantages like efficiency, cleanliness, peak load avoidance and high economic benefits.
