China’s National Energy Administration ordered local authorities on Thursday to promote coal-to-gas switching step by step.

It said China’s gas suppliers and three NOCs should guarantee gas deliveries by linking their pipelines and accelerating the construction of new pipelines and terminals.

Coal-fired cogeneration projects can be launched to supply heating in cities that are short of gas.

Local authorities can also provide subsidies for the construction of clean fuel heating projects.
