the 2016 Sustainable Consumption Week (SCW) was organized by WWF in partnership with CCFA and the China Sustainable Retailer Roundtable (CSRR), advocating sustainable lifestyle choices in clothing, eating, housing, transportation and entertainment.
As a part of sustainable housing, the concept of “smart choosing & using” of energy efficient electric household appliances was conveyed to consumers. Especially with the support of Top10 China, CNIS, and CHEARI, WWF China initiated a series of on-line communication to interact with consumers to collect the frequently asked questions of energy efficient appliances, based on which smart use tips developed by Top10 China experts are provided to the consumers and readers. Especially, WWF, Top10 China, and CHEARI experts visited 3 selected volunteer consumer families to provide them with guidance on smart use of household appliances, based on which 3 consumer education videos were produced and disseminated, including: The Life We Dream For, Get to Know The Stand-by Power Consumption, and Tips for Energy Saving. The video was promoted via CSW’s online video portal (http://www.iqiyi.com/), WWF and Top10’s Weibo & Wechat, and broadcasted in the chain stores involved.
In addition, the SCW consumer smart tips for 5 product categories (refrigerator, TV, air-conditioner, washing machine, rice cooker) was integrated in China Energy Label QR code platform, which can reach every consumer that scan the QR code on the label. Retailers and media were engaged during the SCW. In total 510 chain stores participated in the energy efficient appliance activities during Sustainable Consumption Week, broadcasting the consumer video, providing the consumers with smart use tips for 4 major electric home appliances on posters, leading the consumer to scan the energy efficiency label QR, and promoting energy efficient products. A media salon on energy saving was held in GOME store in Beijing, on which Top10 experts interacted with the media.

According to statistics, the electricity consumption of motors takes 64 percent of the total electrical consumption, and 75 percent of the industrial electrical consumption in China. The average efficiency of electric motors in China is 3 to 5 percent lower than international level; the average efficiency of motor systems is 10 to 20 percent lower than that of the countries with advanced technology. There are much more efficiency improvement potentials for electric motors and motor systems in China than in average global level.
With strong support from MIIT and MOFCOM of China, Swiss Energy and Swiss Embassy in China, the Motor Summit committee decided to hold the summit in China once every two years, which will bring together selected international and Chinese experts, representatives from government, academia and industry to debate strategies and actions to overcome barriers hindering the widespread use of highly efficient motor systems in China and worldwide.Motor Summit China will be the sister event of the famous Motor Summit in Zurich which is also a biennial conference with the fifth one in 2014. China Summit and Zurich Summit will be held every other year.
In 10th and 11th July 2015, Motor Summit China 2015 is held in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province, China. More than 30 experts from international and China gave speeches in the conferences and 250 people from industry and related area participated.
