Huang Bangquan, Guizhou's member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and director of Qianxinan Bouyei and Miao autonomous prefecture energy bureau, brought eight proposals when attending this year's CPPCC session.

Known for its abundant resource reserves, Guizhou has about 241.9 billion metric tons of possible coal ore reserves, and 73.36 billion tons of available coal ore reserves, ranking fifth in China.

In addition, Guizhou's waterpower resources rank sixth in the country, its coal bed methane resources rank second, and its shale gas resources rank fifth. Guizhou is also rich in wind energy, solar energy, geothermal heat, and uranium ore resources.

In 2017, Guizhou initiated a new energy industry operation mechanism, building a community of coal, hydropower and thermal-electricity industries, which has proven to be effective in promoting the reform of energy and energy services.

Based on Guizhou's advantages in the energy industry, Huang believes that establishing an energy comprehensive pilot area is required both for Guizhou's energy development, and for the promotion of high-quality energy development.

Huang suggests that Guizhou should build coal bed methane, shale gas and unconventional natural gas exploration and development demonstration bases, nuclear energy and modularized small low temperature nuclear heating reactor projects, and national energy service demonstration projects.

By building the energy comprehensive pilot area, Guizhou is expected to become a national key energy base, and to explore the construction of a multi-energy supply guarantee system in South China.
