  • Jiangsu DRC guidance for development of distributed energy and micro grids
  • Direct power trading in Beijing in June
  • Anhui DRC issues distributed wind development and construction notice
  • Guohua Dongtai IV 300MW offshore wind project officially starts construction

 
Jiangsu DRC publishes 2018 wind development and construction plan
The plan features 46 projects with total installed capacity of 2.58GW, and estimated utilization hours of 2,000 hrs in 2018. (Jiangsu DRC)

 


In 2017, Jiangsu province saw power consumption of 580.8 TWh and power generation of 488.5TWh, therefore needing to satisfy more than 15% of its energy  demand by importing power from other provinces. As consequence, Jiangsu has no curtailment issue and it was listed as a "green province" in the 2018 Wind Power Investment Monitoring report of the NDRC , meaning that it can move forward with their wind planning, by opposition to some "red provinces" which have to interrupt wind developments.
 
 
Jiangsu DRC guidance for development of distributed energy and micro grids
The documents proposes establishement of 20 micro-grid demonstration projects in Jiangsu province by 2020, representing 400MW of newly-added distributed energy capacty; and also guides towerdas building 50 projects by 2025, with an associated capacity of 2,000MW. (Jiangsu DRC)

Distributed energy microgrids are generally characterized as clean, small, autonomous and convenient. Their aim is to achieve a balance between local energy demand and production.

Anhui DRC issues distributed wind development and construction notice
The notice calls for DRC bureaus in all Anhui cities to submit their 2018 - 2020 distributed wind pipeline by the end of July. (Anhui DRC)
 
Yet another province rapidly compiling its distributed energy plans, confirming the clear new trend in the industry.
 
 
Guohua Dongtai IV 300MW offshore wind project officially started
On June 22, Jiangsu Shenhua and its suppliers held a ground breaking ceremony for the start of construction of the Guohua Dongtai IV 300MW offshore wind project.(BJX)

 


 
Dongtai IV is currently the offshore wind farm which is furthest from shore in China. After completion, it is expected to produce 813GWh annually, equivalent to 20% of Dongtai city's annual electricity consumption.
