Carbon neutral refers to the use of afforestation, energy saving and emission reduction to offset the carbon dioxide emissions generated by itself and achieve "zero emissions" of carbon dioxide. Carbon neutral is a solution proposed in response to global warming.
Climate warming is the most concerned climate issue of humans all over the world today, and the core of climate warming is the increase in greenhouse gas carbon dioxide emissions caused by the increase in human activities.
In response to this issue, from the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen to the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, all emphasis was placed on reducing carbon emissions.
Up to now, the European Union, China, Japan, South Korea, etc. have all proposed carbon neutrality goals. The US President-elect Biden also proposed in his speech that the United States should return to the Paris Agreement. The basic requirement is the time when the United States should propose carbon neutral schedule. In other words, within the next year, all major economies in the world will participate in the process of achieving carbon neutrality.
Two important speeches this year in China both mentioned the need to control carbon emissions, and the Economic Work Conference also list carbon peaking and carbon neutral as one of the eight key tasks for next year. The 14th Five-Year Plan will become the key stage for China's carbon peak and carbon neutral. China promotes of carbon neutral also has the meaning of ensuring energy security, promoting economic transformation and promoting global development.
Two paths for tungsten oxide to help achieving the goal of carbon neutral:
First, carbon reduction at the power generation end: including photovoltaic, wind power, hydropower, nuclear power, and UHV links. As the main raw material of photovoltaic silver, tungsten oxide has excellent electrical conductivity.
Second, carbon reduction on the consumer side: including promoting the consumption of new energy vehicles, the development of energy storage, the use of degradable plastics, and green buildings. Because of its larger specific surface area and higher theoretical capacity, tungsten oxide has gradually become an ideal choice for replacing cobalt as a cathode material for lithium batteries.
