The 2021 carbon emission peak and carbon neutrality Yantai forum is to kick off from Oct 19 to 21 in Yantai, East China's Shandong province, its organizer said during a press conference in Beijing on Monday.

The forum, themed "Green Development and Low-carbon Future", has drawn much attention from the energy industry, with more than 2,000 experts in related fields, including those from academies, institutes, industry association and companies who will gather in Yantai to further discuss the issues of carbon peak and carbon neutrality.

A series of projects and cooperation will be announced during the three-day forum, according to its organizer, the Chinese Nuclear Association.

The city of Yantai has been stepping up developing clean energy in recent years, including nuclear, wind, solar and biomass, which has effectively optimized the local energy mix and as well as the local economic structure.

By the end of last year, the installed capacity of clean energy in Yantai exceeded 8.5 million kilowatts, accounting for 45.5 percent of the city's total power installed capacity and one-fifth of Shandong province's clean energy installed capacity.
