    Shandong, renewables account for 20% of new installed capacity

    Shandong is speeding up the establishment of a clean energy supply system. On April 26th, State Grid Shandong Electric Power Co. announced that the province's renewable energy installed capacity has reached 26.04 GW, accounting for 20.7% of total installed capacity and, by the end of 2020, it is expected to reach 31 GW. Moreover, Shandong has recently actively promoted the construction of UHV transmission channels that,up to now, have guaranteed an incoming 400 GWhof energy,allowing to save the equivalent of 180 million tons of coal consumption. By 2019, the 1000 kV Shandong-Hebei UHV project will be completed and put into operation, andby 2020, Shandong’s grids expected to be more than 30 GW incoming power. (CEC)

    Shandong is actively incentivizing clean-energy and cross-regional market transactions. Renewables capacity is expected to increase by 16% in less than 2 years. The province is currently promoting non-coal energy sources.The premium localization between Beijing and Shanghai offers huge potentialities for energy tradings. The development of UHV transmissions channels will generate high opportunities also for the neighboring provinces.

     

    6.4 TWh nuclear power transmissions in Fujian province

    During the first quarter of this year, Fujian province consumed 10.8 TWh of energy. Nuclear power delivered 6.4 TWh, two times the production registered during the same period of 2017. The total installed power capacity reached a 55.97 GW value, with clean energy accounting for 54.5%, and nuclear energy accounting for 8.71 GW, 15.6% of total, ranking second in the country. Moreover, the 1000-kV UHV T&D project between northern Zhejiang and Fuzhou has been put into operation, increasing power grids exchange capacity from 1.7 GW to 4.5 GW.

    Renewable energy is currently accounting for more than half of installed power capacity in Fujian. During the first quarter of 2018, nuclear power satisfied almost 60% of transactions in the province. Renewables are expected to represent a solution to support the continuous growth of demand in the area.Distribution networks development will support new power stations construction, offering the possibility to rely on other provinces demands and increasing power plants utilization hours.

    NDRC determines on-grid price for third generation nuclear power technology

    In 2013, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Zhejiang DRC, Shangdong DRC and Guangdong DRC issued a notice that supports the introduction of technology to the first batch of nuclear power units in the provinces. Last week, in conjunction with the provinces’ support for the first three generations (AP1000) of nuclear power projects, the following trial prices of on-grid tariffs have been determined:

    1. Guangdong Taishan Phase I Nuclear Power Project: 0.4350 CNY/kWh
    2. Zhejiang Sanmen Phase I Nuclear Power Project: 0.4203 CNY/kWh
    3. Shandong Haiyang Phase I Nuclear Power Project: 0.4151 CNY/kWh
      (NDRC)

    Note:The FITswill be put into effect from the projects’ start date until the end of 2021.

     

     

    NDRC approves transmission price of Guangdong project in Northwestern Yunnan

    The transmission price of the DC project in Northwestern Yunnan has been approved at 0.092 CNY/kWh (including tax without line loss); the transmission price of the supporting AC project in Yunnan Province is 0.015 CNY/kWh. The transmission price is determined by income generated from CAPEX, which ultimately depends on the span of distance of the project. (NDRC)

    The starting point of the project is located in Dali Prefecture, Yunnan Province. The line runs through Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi and Guangdong Provinces, with its endpoint located in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province. With a total length of 1,928 kilometers, it is the longest transmission project of the Southern Power Grid. The project relies on a ±800 kV DC transmission technology with a transmission capacity of 5GW.

     

     

    SPIC releases final 6GW subsidy free onshore wind project WTG bidding results

    Following the close of the recent bidding (refer to Azure’s earlier publication for more details on thebidding process) for SPIC’s 6GW subsidy free onshore wind project, the final results have been released last week: the project site will be located in Siziwangqi, Wulanchabu City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (IMAR), it will require a total investment of 42.544 billion CNY, occupy a planned area of 3,800 square kilometers and reach a construction scale of 6GW.
