EcoPartnership between Duke Energy, ENN Group and the cities of Charlotte and Langfang.
The signing ceremony took place on May 10th,
2011 at the U.S. State Department.
The EcoPartnership program is an effort
by the U.S. Department of State and the
Chinese National Development and Reform
Commission (NDRC) to formally link U.S.
and Chinese stakeholders in a productive
exchange of knowledge and best practices in
the fields of clean energy and sustainability.
The EcoPartnership program was established as
part of the Ten Year Framework on Energy and
Environmental Cooperation, a set of agreements
through U.S. and China’s Strategic and
Economic Dialogue convened in Washington and Beijing every year.
The program’s goal is to facilitate the exchange of information and best practices between the two countries to stimulate innovation and develop solutions to a variety of pressing energy and environmental challenges. As one of only a dozen such partnerships, Duke Energy’s EcoPartnership
is designed to help both public and private stakeholders leverage the experience and technical expertise of all parties to advance.

US Workers taking it on the chin for Hillary and her fellow Democrats U.S. employment in some sectors, particularly the manufacturing sector, has dropped substantially as trade with China has increased. Since China joined the World Trade Organization (WTO), the United States has lost 29 percent of its manufacturing jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and economists have begun to establish clear correlations between this job loss and the bilateral trading relationship. Even as U.S. manufacturing has slumped, U.S. corporations have relocated manufacturing operations to China and imports of Chinese manufactured goods have grown exponentially. As a result, the benefits of the U.S.-China trade relationship have accrued disproportionately to U.S. corporations, while most of the drawbacks have been borne by U.S. workers.

Global Initiative 2009

At the Clinton Global Initiative, Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK) and ENN Group announced a partnership to collaborate on clean energy development. At this point, the deal appears to be an agreement to share information and a statement of intent to partner in various areas.
Duke Energy and China-Based ENN Group to Build Solar Power Projects in U.S. October 23, 2009
LANGFANG, CHINA --China-based ENN Group and Duke Energy will jointly develop commercial solar power projects in the U.S. Under an agreement signed today, ENN and Duke Energy will concentrate on two types of solar photovoltaic designs: large “utility-scale” solar farms and commercial distributed generation solar projects. Distributed generation systems produce electricity close to where the energy is used, rather than at large, central power plants.
This joint development agreement builds upon a memorandum of understanding announced Sept. 23 at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting at which time the companies
pledged to work together to accelerate the development of low-carbon and clean energy technologies.
“China is investing heavily in clean energy and we can make greater progress in the U.S. by joining forces and working together,” said Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers. “Duke Energy and ENN seek to not only accelerate the development of solar power in the U.S., but help achieve economies of scale and drive down the cost of renewable energy.”
“ENN and Duke Energy have very complementary strengths,” said ENN Chairman Wang Yusuo. “We are both dedicated to the development and use of low-carbon, clean energy
sources to combat the climate change crisis facing all humanity.”
Duke Energy Generation Services (DEGS), a commercial business unit of Duke Energy, will team with ENN to develop, own and operate the solar projects.
The joint development agreement will expand DEGS’ existing investments in renewable energy – including wind and biopower – and commercial transmission. DEGS owns and
operates more than 630 megawatts (MW) of wind power projects in the U.S. and plans to add another 350 MW by the end of 2010. In the biopower market, DEGS is developing
wood-waste-to-electricity power plants in the U.S through ADAGE, the company it formed in 2008 with French-based AREVA.
Keith Trent, president and group executive of Duke Energy’s Commercial Businesses, and Wouter van Kempen, president of DEGS, joined ENN Chairman Wang Yusuo and Vice
Chairman and Chief Scientist Gan Zhongxue in Langfang for the signing of the agreement.
ENN is committed to clean energy for China and the world. Since its founding 20 years ago, ENN has grown into an integrated group of companies that delivers clean energy to
tens of millions of customers and provides overall clean energy solutions to city governments and heavy industry. ENN has more than 100 subsidiaries in over 80 cities across China and around the world, and employs more than 24,000 people.
ENN Solar Energy is an international company that produces world-leading silicon thin film solar modules. It has also created an innovative system of integrated solar power stations.

In December, Clark County commissioners voted unanimously to sell up to 9,000 acres of public land to the subsidiary at pennies on the dollar.
The deal spurred local controversy. Separate appraisals valued the land at $29.6 million and $38.6 million. The commission agreed to sell it to ENN for $4.5 million.

LANGFANG, CHINA -- American energy provider Duke Energy and China’s largest clean energy
developer ENN are teaming up to build large-scale solar power plants in the United States.
Under an agreement signed here today, ENN and Duke Energy are beginning a partnership that could see the construction of vast solar farms and locally distributed generation solar projects, which produce electricity near where the energy is used.
“ENN and Duke Energy have very complementary strengths,” said Wang Yusuo, chairman of ENN. “We are both dedicated to the development and use of low-carbon, clean energy sources to combat the climate crisis facing all humanity.”
“This agreement shows China is on the front lines of the clean energy, conservation and emission reduction business. China has a long-history of importing technologies but we are reversing that trend,” said Mr. Wang. Today’s signing flows from an agreement announced on Sept. 23 at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting where the companies pledged to work together to push the development of low-carbon and clean energy technologies.
DNC won’t repay Duke Energy for Charlotte convention costs
The Democratic National Committee has no plans to repay Duke Energy for an unprecedented $10 million line of credit it guaranteed to help the Democratic convention's local host committee put on President Obama’s three-day nominating convention in Charlotte, N.C., last September.
A Duke company official said the company was claiming the money as a business expense for tax purposes, meaning shareholders will foot $6 million of the cost, according to a report in the Charlotte Observer.
The large loan and the secrecy surrounding it have government watchdog groups deeply concerned. They say the arrangement raises serious conflict-of-interest issues for Mr. Obama and challenges his claim to be committed to disclosure and transparency.
