The government work report of the Two Sessions in 2023: promote the development of photovoltaic and wind power, and promote the green transformation of development mode

The opening session of the first session of the 14th National People’s Congress was held in the Great Hall of the People. Premier Li Keqiang made a report on the work of the government. Key points of work related to energy in the report are as follows:

The report pointed out that in the past year, the investment in infrastructure and manufacturing industry increased by 9.4% and 9.1% respectively, driving the growth of fixed assets investment by 5.1%, which to some extent made up for the contraction gap in consumption. Develop new forms and models of consumption, take measures such as reducing and reducing vehicle purchase tax to promote automobile consumption, increase the sales of new energy vehicles by 93.4%, carry out green smart home appliances and green building materials to the countryside, and maintain a basic stability in the total retail sales of social consumer goods.

In response to the impact of high global inflation, we should focus on food and energy to ensure supply and stable prices. Give full play to the role of coal as the main energy source, increase the advanced capacity of coal, increase support for power generation and heating enterprises, and ensure the normal supply of energy. Against the background of high global inflation, it is particularly difficult for China’s prices to maintain a low level.

In the past five years, infrastructure has been improved. A number of major water conservancy projects, such as flood control and drought relief, water diversion and water diversion, have commenced construction. The operating mileage of high-speed railway increased from 25000 kilometers to 42000 kilometers, and the mileage of expressway increased from 136000 kilometers to 177000 kilometers. 1.25 million kilometers of rural roads will be built and rebuilt. The new airport capacity is 400 million person-times. The installed capacity of power generation increased by more than 40%. All prefecture-level cities have achieved gigabit optical network coverage, and all administrative villages have broadband access.

Promote the industry to move towards the middle and high end. Strictly implement environmental protection, quality, safety and other regulations and standards, and eliminate backward production capacity. Carry out actions to strengthen and supplement the chain of key industries. We will launch a number of industrial infrastructure reconstruction projects. Encourage enterprises to speed up equipment upgrading and technological transformation, and extend the preferential policy of accelerated depreciation of fixed assets to all manufacturing industries. We will accelerate the development of high-end equipment, biomedicine, new energy vehicles, photovoltaic, wind power and other emerging industries.
