国务院下发通知 公务车每周按尾号少开一天

THE State Council has ordered all government cars nationwide to keep off the road for one day each week depending on the last digit on their plate number. This time, the move is to save energy.

For instance, government cars with license plates ending in 1 or 6 will be banned from the roads on Mondays. Those with plates ending in 2 or 7 will be banned on roads on Tuesdays, and so on.

On Saturday, the State Council issued 10 measures to promote energy-saving habits, especially among government employees, the first such national campaign ever. The campaign asks employees to make less use of cars, lifts and air conditioners. Governments at all levels are required to take part.

China is the world's second largest energy consumer, after the US. Fast economic development and rising living standards are putting pressure on the country's energy supply. For instance, in mid-July, there was a shortage of 14 million kilowatts of electricity.

Government departments have long been criticized for their energy-wasting habits. A study by the Hubei Construction Bureau in June found that governmental office buildings use 80 kilowatts of electricity per square meter every year. This number is much higher than the 20-30 kilowatts civilian buildings require per square meter.

Qi Dunfang, deputy director of the auditing bureau of Henan, told the Dahe News that the new measures should be effective. According to Qi, if the two lifts in his building are stopped, it will save 72 kilowatts of electricity, or 50 yuan each day. Taking cars off the road will save around 40 yuan for every 40 kilometers normally driven.

Government institutions and organizations own about 4 million cars. Millions of yuan could be saved if employees follow the new guidelines.

Zhu Zhijie, a senior English major at Nanjing University, believes the government should clearly mark its vehicles to encourage employees to abide by the new regulations. "People could dial a telephone number to report any breaking of the rules," said the 22-year-old.

Commission targets GDP consumption rate

GOVERNMENTS at all levels in China have another "green" task - they must reduce energy consumption per unit of GDP.

Last week, the National Development and Reform Commission named seven places that failed to reach their energy conservation targets in 2007. They are Hebei, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Hainan, Guizhou, Ningxia and Xinjiang.

In 2006, China vowed to reduce energy consumption per unit of GDP by 20 percent before the year 2010, based on 2005 levels.

However, in 2007, the central government did not release evaluation results for 2006, due to concerns that they would affect the assessments of local governments.

State Council's guide to saving energy

Ordinary people are encouraged to drive one day less each week. Official vehicles should be kept off the roads one day each week, depending on the last number of their license plate.

Keep air conditioners in public buildings set at 26 degrees Celsius in summer and 20 degrees in winter.

Avoid using lifts in government offices with three floors or less.

Use fewer street and landscape lamps. Turn off unnecessary lights in public places, except during important festivals.

Encourage people to buy both cars that uses less gas and household electric appliances with energy-saving designs.

Use fewer disposable products, such as chopsticks and paper cups.

Dress casually in offices during the summer, except for important occasions.
