(11 November 2022, Changzhou) The Hurun Research Institute released the Hurun China New Energy Cities 2022, a list of the Top 50 cities in China with the highest concentration of new energy companies. This is the first year of the list.
Hurun Research ranked the cities based on a combination of three factors: the number of ‘Large New Energy Companies’, defined as listed China billion-dollar new energy companies (total 228) and their subsidiaries (total 3000); the number of small and medium-sized new energy companies (total of 20,000+); and the announcements of significant new energy initiatives and investments.
This is a brief translation from the original Chinese-language press release, which can be found on www.hurun.net.
Rupert Hoogewerf, Hurun Report Chairman and Chief Researcher, said: “Over the next two decades, China's economy is expected to continue its rapid industrialization and urbanization, with the upgrading of consumption driving a shift in industrial structure. Future economic growth cannot be achieved without the support of adequate energy supply. At present, the traditional energy resources that can be developed are limited. Under the goal of ‘dual carbon targets’, China's future economic development cannot be separated from the development of the new energy industry.”
“The new energy industry is an important measure of the how developed a country or region is. I hope this list will encourage local governments to develop their new energy industry.”
“East China is leading the country when it comes to new energy, with 26 of the Hurun Top 50 cities. Within East China, Jiangsu leads the way, led by three cities in the Top 10: Changzhou, Nanjing and Suzhou.”
“Changzhou makes the Top 5, the only second-tier China city in the Top 10 and the only city with a GDP of less than CNY1 trillion. We can say that China's new energy industry is being led by East China, that East China’s new energy industry is being led by Jiangsu, and Jiangsu’s new energy industry is being led by Changzhou.”
Changzhou is one of the birthplace of modern Chinese industry, and one of the founders of the South Jiangsu model. Of 41 industrial categories, 207 intermediate categories and 666 sub-categories, Changzhou has 37, 191 and 600, respectively. Manufacturing is the city's brightest feature, biggest advantage and strongest competitiveness. In recent years, Changzhou has closely adhered to the position of "famous international intelligent manufacturing city and central axis hub of Yangtze River Delta". Relying on the industrial advantages of good foundation, full range of categories and strong resilience, Changzhou has seized the opportunities of "new" industries and gradually built a "great cycle" development pattern of new energy industry with "development, storage, delivery and use" as the key links.
At the power generation end, Changzhou is dominated by the solar photovoltaic industry, which has a complete construction and covers all production and manufacturing links except polysilicon materials. The scale ranks among the top in China, with the annual output of batteries and modules accounting for about 10% of the country. At the transmission end, Changzhou mainly focuses on the intelligent power equipment industry. As the largest UHV power transmission and transformation equipment manufacturing base in China, Changzhou enjoys the title of "Transformer Capital of the World". Its product structure covers various models, and its market share ranks the first in China. At the application end, Changzhou is dominated by the new energy automobile industry. In recent years, Changzhou has introduced a number of new energy vehicle and core parts production enterprises. With the growth and expansion of auto parts enterprises with original advantages, Changzhou has become an important industrial agglomeration area of new energy vehicles and parts in Jiangsu Province, with the production and sales volume of new energy vehicles accounting for half of the province.
