The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) has released a request for comment regarding the Supervisory Measures for Grid Enterprises to Fully Guarantee Purchase of Renewable Energy.

The policy requires that grid companies purchase all on-grid electricity entirely from renewable energy power generation enterprises, with the exception of market-traded electricity, and that the National Energy Administration (NEA) be responsible for supervising such full-scaled purchasing within the scope of grid operations. The policy also states that grid companies shall bear responsibility for any unjustified economic losses it inflicts on renewable energy power generation companies and be liable for providing compensation.
