    Energy and Environment Research Center

    Gathering Strength and Achieving Excellence

    Energy and Environment Research Center (EERC) was established at the yearend of 2005 at the North China Electric Power University (NCEPU). It represents an important milestone achieved by vigorous collaborations between NCEPU and University of Regina (Canada) in the past years. The Center is committed to building upon its recognized and emerging strengths in the broad areas of Energy and Environment research from two institutions in the past, respectively. The EERC targets on today’s most critical energy and environmental issues and challenges, aiming toward developing sound, cost-effective, and innovative technologies and strategies, and more importantly, moving these scientific and engineering solutions to real-world problem-solving. In-line with NCEPU’s strategic mission of improving the emerging strengths in energy and environment studies, it is the goal for the EERC to become and provide a national research and education centre at the forefront to conduct research and train high quality personnel (such as Master, PhD and PDF) at the NCEPU. The creation of this research unit at NCEPU will be gradually recognized as one of the world’s leading energy and environment research organizations, and ultimately will elevate the capacity and capability of our country not only for handling our own energy-environment challenges but also for enhancing international competitiveness in this area.

     EERC has track records of extensive publications in top peer-refereed journals, acquisition of nation-wide major and strategic research grants, and service to many governments and industries. The EERC research team consists of not only newly-hired faculty members from top universities in China, but also newly-recruited researchers (as Adjunct Professors) from overseas universities including Dalhousie University (Canada), University of Northern British Columbia (Canada), Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada), and Tokyo University of Japan. The Center has also recruited over 50 graduate students in the past couple of years to undertake various research tasks under the supervisions of EERC’s faculties.

    Four areas have been identified as main research streams at this early stage of EERC, including energy planning and management, environmental sciences, environmental engineering and water resources management. Five research departments were initiated and formed to undertake different research topics and projects towards providing scientific and engineering solutions to various energy and environment issues, including Energy and Pollution Control Department, Energy and Environmental Systems Engineering Department, Climate Change and Energy System Department, Clean Technology and Energy-Saving Research Department, and Energy-Environment Science Department. Since its establishment in late 2005, the EERC has grown rapidly and has received various funding from different government and private organizations, much of which is for supporting nation-wide major and strategic researches and projects, such as the National Basic Research Program of China (973 Program), National Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing Municipality, and Petro-China. In addition, the EERC has co-organized a successful event of “China-Canada Energy and Environment Summit Forum” for supporting Government of Canada and State Bureau of Foreign Experts Affairs of China. Together with the ISEIS, the EERC helped organize the “ISEIS’2006 Specialty Conference on Science and Technology on Disertification Control” in Beijing. All the efforts and actions have helped draw attentions and opportunities to the EERC, and have significantly promoted the EERC to be recognized by both national and international research communities as well.

    EERC’s 5-year goals for the period of 2006-2010 include:

    To be one of the national top 5 Energy and Environment Research Institutions through enhancing the research capacity and capability of the EERC in every aspects;

    To hire 5-10 high caliber researchers in the energy and environment field from overseas;

   To establish a high caliber research team with Changjiang Scholars and National Distinguished Young Scholars leading the team and other 12-15 young-to-middle aged scholars being main forces;

   To create a first-class Energy and Environment Research laboratories and facilities and infrastructure;

   To publish over 100 peer-referred journal publications in top international journals with over 50 of the total being SCI cited.

    In the long run, the EERC will not only focus on tackling the major scientific and engineering issues in the energy and environment studies, but also focus on addressing the most critical energy and environmental challenges in practice facing China. The Center’s research portfolios will consist mainly of a wide array of strategic energy and environmental solutions to the region and the nation for ensuring the insurance of long-term regional and national energy security and quality environment. Specifically, the long-term goals include:

    To predict nation-wide energy demand and environmental pollution trend in the coming decades under various social and economic development scenarios;

    To follow closely the direction and advancement of global energy and environment research and development;

    To develop advanced and innovative technologies for better energy utilization and conservation and environmental pollution control;

    To initiate protocols for developing nation-wide energy and environment database and information technologies;

   To establish health risk assessment frameworks for assessing human health risks associated with energy consumption and environmental pollution, and thus to identify control strategies;

   To develop region-wide and nation-wide energy and environmental management decision support systems for sustaining the growth of nation’s energy, environment and economy in a healthy manner.
