Compared with traditional coal, the new energy firewood produced by Tibet Jingxiang New Engergy Development Company is smokeless, high-efficient and environmental friendly. As China now strengthens environmental protection, people's living standard improves a lot, they pay more attention to environmental protection and reselect the fuel for daily use. According to Penpa Tsering, their new products are popular among customers and in short supply in Xigaze's market.

With the care from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the government, their business goes well and is planned to expand to remote areas. Their first strategic area is decided to be Nagqu. They will set up sales points there, to benefit more farmers and herdsmen.

Starting own business also changed Penpa Tsering's life. He began to embark on public welfare activities. Influenced by his adoptive father Nyima Tsering who has been awarded the title of national moral model and been devoting himself to public welfare undertakings, he has his own views on doing public welfare activities. He thinks that the value of one's life cannot be measured by the properties one owns, but depends on how many he gives to others. He has been to over ten counties of Xigaze and Ngari for publicizing the CPC's policies and knowledge of poverty alleviation, winning praise from farmers and herdsmen.

Penpa Tsering who has received care from the public, now pays back the society. His inspiring story encourages more young people to pursue their own dreams.
