NEA publishes 1H2018 wind power on-grid operation situation
During the first half of this year, 7.94GW of new wind capacity was connected to the grid, reaching a total of 171.6 GW. Wind farms produced a total of 191.7TWh, an increase of 28.7% yr-on-yr, with average utilization hours increasing more than 10% since last year. (NEA)
The wind curtailment isssue has also been significantly improved, with curtailment decreasing more than 10% in the provinces of Jinlin, Heilongjiang and Gansu.
157MW of offshore wind installed in 1H
With an additionnal 157MW connected during 1H, the total on-grid offshore wind capacity in China is now 2.7GW. (NEA)
While 157MW is not a big number, we expect more significant installations in the second half of the year, allowing 2018 to be a record year for offshore wind in China.
Guangdong 2018-2020 “Blue sky defence” plan published by Guangdong Department of Environmental Protection
The plan lists installed capacity targets for all clean energy, including 16GW of Nuclear, 6.5GW of Wind and 5GW of PV. Key cities for deployment of offshore wind are Zhuhai, Shantou, Shanwei, Yangjiang, Zhengjiang and Jieyang. By the end of 2020, the province should have more than 2GW offshore wind in operation and more than 6.5GW under construction.(GDEP)
As a power import province, and the most populated province in China with a population above 100 million, Guangdong has a lot of grid space to build its power generation capacity. In 2017, Guangdong consummed 595.9 TWh but produced only 451.6 TWh.
Hainan's first pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) station put into operation
The 600MW PHES project has 3 units of 200MW each and projected annual power generation of 1.0 TWh for a total investment of 3.4 billion CNY. This dam is adjacent to Hainan province load centers and to nuclear power transmission channels. (Hainan News)
Once it comes into operation, the PHES station will enable to reduce the average peak-regulation rate of thermal power in Hainan by 11%, and to increase provincial thermal power annual utilization hours by 374 hours.
Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei included in new energy vehicle battery recycling pilot
The NEA has launched a large scale pilot project to explore technical and market solutions to encourage recycling of batteries used in electric vehicles. So far the projet will involve the regions of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Shanxi Province, Shanghai and Guangdong Province. The annoucement also introduces China Railway Tower Co., Ltd as a key player in the pilot project. (GOV) (NEA)
