Besides, the implementation of energy saving in the province is facing a number of difficulties: A majority of people do not understand the importance of saving electricity; For the manufacturing industry: power-saving practice only focuses on some auxiliary equipment.
The technological production line of the majority of plants is backward and it does not meet the standards for energy labeling of Ministry of Industry and Trade; Payrolls for specialized staff are slim causing more difficulties in implementing work; Currently, the evaluation of the energy savings for other types of energy such as coal, gas, oil has no basis for evaluation, so it is also difficult.
Therefore, in order to facilitate the implementation of energy-saving in the province, Ministry of Industry and Trade should enact regulations on energy consumption rate per unit of product; promulgate the regulations on the assessment of energy savings for other types of energy for local-based deployment.
