With the continuous rise of the world’s socio-economic development, energy
production and consumption has been facing various challenges through the
years.  Burning fossil fuels has led to various issues such as
environmental pollution and climate change, while renewable energy faces a
bottleneck in capital costs, technical development, and market mechanisms.
Therefore, we must employ systematic thinking, comprehensively involve
energy technology, generation, consumption and institutions of governance
simultaneously, and fundamentally change the way of we use energy, so as to
build a new energy supply-demand system.

The Belt and Road Initiative would make possible the construction of the
Global Energy Internet as a global response to the current problems of the
energy sector that lead to climate change. The Global Energy Internet is
based on the smart grid based on Ultra-High-Voltage (UHV) transmission
technology. Renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, and hydropower,
are usually built in far-flung areas, and a UHV smart grid is able to
transmit this power more efficiently across vast distances.  Using its
technology, equipment, and experience, China has the ability to promote its
application in Philippines, which has a wealth of water, high-quality wind
and solar energy resources, suitable for large-scale development and


Dr. Zhao Zhihao has over fifteen years experience in the power industry,
having worked in China, Australia and the Philippines. He has worked for
the State Grid of China Corporation, and was involved in various aspects of
energy sector, which include generation, construction, transmission, and
renewable energy, among others. His research field includes the Asian
region's energy market. He obtained his Electrical Engineering degree from
Henan University of Technology, his MBA from North China Electrical Power
University, and PhD in Management from De La Salle University.
