Culture of Journal

Southern China Wisdoms,

The green Energy suppliers,

Build a better future Construction

When the wind from the sea whirls in the forests of wind turbine generators,

When the burning sunlight in the deserts gathers in the dish-like mirrors,

With good commands of the wisdom from the south we gather the light,

Pursuing and utilizing the great nature’s might.

When UHV flexible DC crosses thousands of rivers and mountains,

When the energy planning of Greater Bay Area goes with near zero emissions,

With green dreams in our hearts and responsibilities on our shoulders,

We make modern energy more intelligent and low carbon for the betters.

Logo of the Journal

Southern Energy Construction is shortened as “S. Energy Constr.” in English,whose logo trademark holds the letters “S”, “E” and “C” as the basic elements. The “S”, composed of three leaves, resembles the bird view of the ∽-shaped office building of China Energy Engineering Group Guangdong Electric Power Design Institute Co., Ltd, the sponsor of the journal. Among the three leaves, the blue one represents carbon-based energy supplemented by efficient and clean technologies such as carbon dioxide capture, utilization and storage, the green one stands clean energy, and three small green “S”-shaped curves, connected with the big letter “S” letter in the middle, symbolize the advanced power transmission and smart grid technology. The three blades and three curves contain the meaning of “Southern”, “Smart” and “Sweet”. On the whole, the big “S” stands for Southern, the left semicircle and three green lines constitute “E” (Energy), and the right semicircle “C” stands for Construction, together, they depict a blue earth lit by green energy, showcasing the periodical culture of “Southern China Wisdoms, the green Energy suppliers, build a better future Construction” in a simple and vivid graphic language.

The text and graphic design trademark of “Southern Energy Construction” has obtained the trademark certificate issued by China National Intellectual Property Administration.
