The governor of Hebei province, Zhang Qingwei, met with the GM of the China Power Investment Corp, Lu Qizhou, on March 22, in Shijiazhuang, the provincial capital, to discuss working together in the field of energy, such as thermal, wind, and photovoltaic power, and the city’s heat supply.

Zhang explained that Hebei, which is an industrial power, has great energy demands, but that it is also facing the serious needs for conserving energy and reducing emissions. Its previous cooperation with China Power Investment,
