In the next decade, China will vigorously develop wind power and solar power generation
Li Gao, director of the climate change Department of the Ministry of ecology and environment, said on the 15th that China will further vigorously develop wind power and solar power generation during the 14th five year plan and the 15th five year plan.
Recently, China proposed at the climate ambition summit that by 2030, the total installed capacity of wind power and solar power will reach more than 1.2 billion kw.
Li Gao said that this goal fully demonstrates China’s strength and determination to actively respond to climate change. The installed capacity of wind power and solar power in China has achieved rapid development, ranking first in the world. By 2030, the installed capacity of wind power and solar power is close to three times of the existing scale, equivalent to the current installed capacity of all power generation in the United States, exceeding the current installed capacity of global wind power and photovoltaic. This means that on the basis of the rapid development in the past, China’s wind and solar power generation will still achieve sustained and rapid development in the next decade.
He also said that the new goal further clarified that wind power and solar power generation are the direction of China’s future energy development, and released a clear and strong policy signal to continuously accelerate the development of relevant industries. This will strengthen the confidence of industrial development, stabilize industrial development expectations, condense the joint force of industrial development, and have a significant and far-reaching impact on the low-carbon transformation of China’s energy structure and the development of renewable energy.
Li Gao believes that this goal plays an important supporting role in achieving the goal of peaking carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and the vision of achieving carbon neutralization by 2060, and helps to enhance the confidence of the international community in China’s realization of the updated national independent contribution goal and the vision of carbon neutralization.
He said that during the “14th five year plan” and “15th five year plan”, China will continue to optimize the development layout of wind power and solar power generation. While continuing to promote the construction of centralized bases, China will fully support the development of distributed wind power and photovoltaic, and encourage qualified regions to vigorously develop offshore wind power. Strengthen the coordination of new energy development policies, reduce the non-technical cost of new energy, fully ensure the implementation of parity of wind power and photovoltaic power generation, and improve the price formation mechanism. Promote the construction of a new generation power system suitable for a high proportion of renewable energy, and further improve energy storage and peak shaving capacity. We will continue to promote technological innovation in wind power and solar power generation and improve the technical level of the whole industrial chain.
