"Eleventh Five-Year Plan" China's Electric Power Installation Increases 100 Million Kilowatts A Year

According to the spokesperson of the State Electricity Regulatory Commission Tan Rongzheng on the 7th, during the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” period, China has accelerated the construction of power by adding about 100 million kilowatts of power generation capacity per year, basically solving the “electricity shortage” that has long plagued China’s economic and social development. The problem is that by the end of this year, the power installed capacity will reach 950 million kilowatts.

Tan Rongji said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency reporters that at present, the scale of China’s power grid has surpassed that of the United States in ranking first in the world, and its power generation capacity continues to rank second in the world. It is expected that the growth of power installations will continue to moderately faster than GDP growth in the next five years, adding at least 495 million kilowatts.

Tan Rongxuan said that new progress has been made in the restructuring of China's power grids, and the proportion of green power generation has exceeded a quarter. The proportion of coal-fired power in the total installed capacity decreased from 72.8% in 2005 to 68.5% in 2009; the installed capacity of wind power doubled for four consecutive years; the installed capacity of hydropower and the scale of nuclear power under construction ranked first in the world. The proportion of installed capacity of green power including new energy sources such as hydropower, nuclear power, wind power and solar power increased from 24.2% in 2005 to 25.6% in 2009.

In the first four years, China closed down 60,600,000 kilowatts of small-scale generating units and completed the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" shutdown target one and a half years ahead of schedule. The coal consumption of power supply has dropped by 30g/kWh and the discharge of pollutants has been completed one year ahead of schedule. One-fifth" control goal.

In addition, the overall technological level of China's power grid has increased. The promotion of the use of millions of kilowatts of ultra-supercritical generating units, the launching of the Longtan Hydropower Station after the Three Gorges Project, and the completion and commissioning of UHV transmission lines have signaled that the level of China's power technology and equipment manufacturing has reached the world's leading level.

The “12th Five-Year Plan” power plan is under development. Tan Rongji believes that in the next five years, we should focus on lagging behind in the reform of the power system, basically establish a power market trading mechanism, and form a reasonable price mechanism, so that the role of the market in optimizing the allocation of resources can be significantly enhanced.
