Beijing, 30th June, 2017 (BISTU)--- Environmental protection and energy saving has become a culture and a trend of the times. More and more students and faculties have realized the importance of environmental protection and energy saving and have cultivated very good habits. At BISTU there is a professional of environmental protection and energy saving. Here we would like to share his stories and experiences.
A long established Party Member, Sun Wei now is Chief of Management of BISTU Office for Logistics Management. He has worked on many a post from in departments of academic affairs to one in students’ halls. He starts his current job in 2007. It seems that he will not rush to solve problems and is always smiling. However, when facing with issues of environmental protection and energy saving, he becomes very serious, and to some extent, he could be “more serious” than expected.
Step by step to make solid progress
When energy saving office is firstly established in 2007, there is not much work to do. Then policies on environmental protection and energy saving are published by Beijing and the State and then Sun realizes that environmental protection and energy saving will become a trend of the nation. He starts to collect information on environmental protection and energy saving, actively attend various meetings and conferences and work hard on all policy documentation. He then raises suggestions and advice on environmental protection and energy saving at BISTU. Since 2008, BISTU has published 9 policies on environmental protection and energy saving and introduced 12 relating technologies. The 12th Five Year Plan witnesses that BISTU becomes one of the 10,000 institutions in pilot program of environmental protection and energy saving of China. Increasing pressure on energy management urges Sun and his colleagues to work more diligently. One year’s effort leads to approval of BISTU energy management system in March 2016.
According to Sun, advertising, technology and data analysis are the three sections that work on environmental protection and energy saving shall hold in hand. He lists several energy saving projects introduced by BISTU and says that he is most satisfactory with the project on Qinghe Campus. It is a project aimed at reasonable arrangement of water supply with office and residential areas of the campus. This project is a successful one and evidently raises effectiveness of energy consumption. Heating supply consumes 60% of all energy BISTU needs. Achievements in this regard are a big step. He says.
Pursuit of perfection with unique methods
It is everyone’s responsibility to save energy and protect our environment. However, it is a hard job to keep doing it. For Sun, the more important job, also a hard one, is to help students and faculties in their awareness of environmental protection and energy saving. In the past years, Sun and his colleagues have conducted a number of large-scale promotional activities, with various topics and form, in the hope that students and faculties would be aware of the importance of environmental protection and energy saving. Meanwhile, an environmental protection and energy saving brochure is prepared for each student when they firstly register with BISTU.
For years, environmental protection and energy saving engineering can only be completed in summer holidays. And for years Sun has to sacrifice his summer holidays to work. He is a perfectionist in project inspection and acceptance. “When installing air-conditioners, I find that in some offices the lines are not arranged as has been planned. Although it still works, I communicate with them and ask them to re-do that part. The result is that they always glare at me whenever we meet each other. I have no choice. A job has to be done perfectly.” Says Sun.
Once some reports that the teaching building in Xiaoying campus is still brightly lit. as the campus has been installed with infrared sensors to save electricity and the sensors have 10 minutes delay before turning off automatically. To truly locate the problem, Sun and his colleagues have to wait till 12 at night and check each classroom. When they finally find the problem it is already 2am in early morning. They go back to work on the day as is required, just a bit tired. “When problems are solved, energy is saved.” Says Sun.
Care about energy saving even retired
Sun is to retire in next February but is now still busy with preparations for energy saving week to be hosted at BISTU in near future. It is the quality of a quality party member to work hard till the last minute on duty. “BISTU still has a lot to do with regard to environmental protection and energy saving. The most ideal is full participation of all BISTU students and faculties. We need more understanding and support in environmental protection and energy saving. When BISTU is doing well in environmental protection and energy saving, Beijing, even the whole country will benefit from this. However, development and construction of BISTU requires more equipment and facilitates and thus environmental protection and energy saving is a increasingly difficult job. Whatever it takes, we shall keep an eye on environmental protection and energy saving in each detail on everyday life.” Says Sun.
Happiness with relaxed attitude and goodwill to others
As a frugal person, Sun also saves water in everyday life at home. He lives in residential area of Qinghe campus. Each day after dinner he would walk around Qinghe and Xiaoying campus to see whether lights have been turned off or whether water is dripping from some taps. Environmental protection and energy saving has been closely connected to his personal life.
He is a happy man living with his father who is very healthy at the age of 90. He cooks for his father in person every day and packs some food for his father’s lunch from university canteen. When being asked about the life with his father, Sun says with happiness: “Parents living with children are treasures to the family. People of my age can still enjoy parents’ love and care. It is a blessing for me and I have to cherish it.”
