It is reported that before 2007, China’s temperature controller and sensor industry has maintained an annual growth rate of 20% ~ 30%. In order to achieve a low-carbon economy, large-scale development of thermal power has come to an end, but the maintenance, upgrading and reconstruction of existing thermal power plants, power grid and new energy construction, will continue to drive the development of automation technology and instrumentation. If use wired instrument, it is impractical in the factory with densely covered pipeline, if use wireless instrument, very simple.
According to the iea, in the next 10 years, China will invest 1.2 trillion yuan in transportation, 872 billion yuan in electricity supply, 440 billion yuan in building energy conservation and emission reduction, and 300 billion yuan in industry to develop a low-carbon economy and achieve energy conservation and emission reduction. To save energy and reduce emissions, we must first measure energy consumption.
Although many temperature controllers and sensor suppliers’ products cannot directly produce low carbon benefits, suppliers themselves can provide advanced instruments to improve users’ production efficiency, improve product quality, monitor and control emissions, and make contributions to low carbon economy.
The concept of low carbon economy is penetrating into various industries including temperature controller. The instrument products with environmental protection, energy saving and high efficiency will usher in a new development opportunity.However, from September 2008, business orders decreased sharply and production and sales dropped significantly. By early 2009, the growth rate dropped to the lowest level in more than 20 years, only about 2%. The improvement of information integration and system integration capability, as well as the new changes in the world economic situation, will bring new opportunities to the development of instrument and process sensor technology and its industry.
The low-carbon economy mainly involves the energy conservation and emission reduction sectors and the new energy sectors, which are subdivided into the industries related to temperature controllers and sensors, and include the nuclear power, wind power, photovoltaic power generation, smart grid, clean coal power generation and other industries. At present, most instrument and sensor companies with complete product lines can make great contributions to the low-carbon economy, but many old enterprises have high energy consumption and low energy efficiency.
