NEA requires cities to promote winter wind power heating

Following the winter clean heating plan for China’s northern regions (2017-2021) (NDRC), the National Energy Administration (NEA) requires that northern cities complete wind power heating development planning before June 2019. Meanwhile, it will implement corresponding investment subsidy policies for wind power clean heating projects. (NEA)

This solution is being implemented gradually with several objectives: 1. provide an alternative revenue steam for wind farms suffering from heavy curtailment and 2. electrify heat supply in order to reduce the need for CHP plants which are among the key contributors to pollution in urban areas.

 

 

NEA releases second batch of “13th Five-Year Plan” PV poverty alleviation projects

The second batch of photovoltaic (PV) poverty alleviation projects of the “13th Five-Year Plan” will be carried out in 15 provinces (districts) and include 165 county PV poverty alleviation projects that comprise of 3,961 village-level PV power stations with a total installed capacity of 1.67GW. The target is to assist 301,773 households in poverty-stricken villages, and all projects should be operating before the end of 2019. (NEA)

Shandong shuts down four coalmines of 1.62 million ton annual capacity

Regarding the decision-making and deployment of structural reforms on the power supply side, the Energy Administration of Shandong Province is working towards resolving and preventing overcapacity of coal-fired power generation by shutting down four coalmines that have constituted a capacity of 1.62 million tons in 2019.

To put this in perspective, 1.62 million tons of coal allows to produce about 5,500 GWh of thermal power in a year. Closing down these mines thus creates space for roughly 2,800MW of new wind farms on the Shandong grid, where wind produces at an average of 1,971 utilization hours.

 

 

Hebei promotes the application of 35,500 new energy vehicles in 2019

The lead department for the Development and Promotion of New Energy Vehicles in Hebei Province has proposed to promote the application of 35,500 new energy vehicles in 2019 and increase the proportion of new energy vehicles used in the public service sector, such as logistics vehicles, school coaches, postal service vehicles, street cleaning vehicles, etc. The department will also support the pilot results of the promotion and application of new energy vehicles in Baoding City and promote the full roll out of new energy vehicles in the main vicinity of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games (in the Zhangjiakou City administrative zone).
