Q: Enterprises are at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation. How do we build corporate cultures and social environments that will encourage innovation and tolerate failure? 

A: Obstacles are part and parcel of innovation. The government should make practical changes to policies and regulations related to scientific and technological innovation, instead of going by the book all the time. Take construction innovation for example; when regulating factory-made buildings, the method of managing general contractors and migrant workers should be changed.


Many conventional construction units are makeshift teams. As most of the workers are temporary workers, conducting quality control in an orderly and precise manner when constructing any building is very challenging. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out very strict quality tracking and management of the construction process, which is supervised by a third party or government authorities. This is the way contractors and migrant workers are managed, and it works because they are a temporary organization and lack a sense of responsibility and experience. However, it won’t work when it comes to a factory-made building, which has sophisticated R&D and quality management systems, as well as a stable management team. The company also has its own brand. Hence, it will consciously meet the requirements for managing its own product quality. We note that the current method of manufacturing factory-made buildings is identical to the manufacturing of automobiles. Therefore, both should be regulated in the same way. In other words, regulating factory-made buildings by an authority familiar with the manufacturing industry should be considered.


Q: Authoritative international institutions have predicted that by 2060, new-energy sources will account for more than 50% of the global energy mix, and become the cornerstone of future energy. In the process, what technological breakthroughs do you expect will occur in the renewable energy sector?


A: If 50% is all that new energy can muster by 2060, the Earth may well be uninhabitable! We hope to see wind energy account for 50% of the global energy mix between 2030 and 2040. By 2050, wind energy is forecast to account for 70%, solar 20%, and biomass, the remaining 10%. Only then can the climate be stabilized and the human race survive.
