National Energy Administration issued a document on the Development and Construction of Wind Power and Photovoltaic Power
Recently, the General Department of the National Energy Administration issued the “Notice on the Development and Construction of Wind Power and Photovoltaic Power Generation in 2021 (Draft for Comment)”, soliciting opinions on the development and construction of wind power and photovoltaic power generation in 2021.
As the beginning year of the 14th Five-Year Plan, the wind power development policy in 2021 has unique significance. The draft makes it clear that in 2021, wind power and photovoltaic power generation will account for about 11% of the total social electricity consumption.
The policy is a big change in rules compared to the 2020 wind power development and construction policy.
The following information is relevant to offshore wind power in this document:
By 2030, non-fossil energy will account for about 25 percent of primary energy consumption, and the total installed capacity of wind and solar power will reach more than 1.2 billion KW.
Energy departments at the provincial level should conscientiously organize the construction of stock projects approved (recorded) during the 13th Five-Year Plan period and promote the completion and operation of these projects. The bidding wind power projects approved (recorded) in 2019 and 2020 and the stock projects such as parity wind power and photovoltaic power demonstration projects that are connected to the grid before the end of 2021 will be directly included in the guaranteed grid scale of 2021.
The orderly development of offshore wind power will be promoted. In line with the 14th Five-Year Plan, the government will connect with the revision and compilation of provincial-level offshore wind power plans, and work with natural resource departments to formulate planning and management measures for deep water offshore wind power and launch demonstration projects for deep water offshore wind power. Local governments should actively introduce incentive policies for offshore wind power investment subsidies and subsidies for per-kilowatt-hour electricity to support the sustained and sound development of the industry.
Technical upgrading of old wind power projects will be launched. Following the principle of voluntary enterprise participation, owners are encouraged to carry out technical upgrading and replacement of wind turbines with a capacity of less than 1.5 megawatts. pilot projects will be encouraged to be carried out. Based on such trials, the state will formulate policies and local governments will formulate specific rules and implement them, so as to improve the quality and efficiency of the wind power industry and promote its sustainable development.
Local governments are encouraged in introducing incentive policies for offshore wind power, distributed wind power, household photovoltaic power, self-regulating distributed systems, and off-grid distributed power generation projects in light of their local conditions, so as to motivate private capital to participate in the constructing wind power and photovoltaic power generation.
