NDRC and NEA: To Develop New Energy in China as Much as Possible

PVTIME – Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of China and the National Energy Administration (NEA) of China released a document named Opinions on Improving the System, Mechanism and Policies for Green and Low-Carbon Energy Transformation.

The Opinions pointed that the main goals for the 14th Five-Year Plan is to establish an institutional framework for promoting the development of green and low-carbon energy, forming relatively complete policies, standards, market and supervision systems, a mechanism for promoting green and low-carbon energy, especially for non-fossil energy, is involved.

By 2030, China is expected to establish a complete basic system and policy system for green and low-carbon energy, and form an energy production and consumption pattern in which non-fossil energy not only basically meets the incremental energy demand, but also replaces fossil fuels with a large scale, to ensure the energy storage and security.

Highlighted Terms relate to PHOTOVOLTAICS

1 To improve the standards for renewable energy applied in buildings, and encourage the use of solar energy, geothermal energy, biomass energy and other renewable energy to supply energy for buildings.

2 The desert and Gobi are main areas to setup large-scale wind and photovoltaic power generation bases. It is important to upgrade and alternate existing coal-fired power units to clean energy in these region, and explore new ways to transmit the power generated by new energy power stations to cities. New energy should be developed, built and connected to grid as much as possible.

3 In rural areas, priority should be given to rooftop and distributed photovoltaic power generation, biogas power generation, biomass and other clean power generation to connect to the power grid, and power grid companies should give priority to purchasing these power.

4 The wind and photovoltaic power generation in rural areas is encouraged to be decentralized depends on local landscape. New energy projects should be planned well beforehand and the relevant enterprises are encouraged to cooperate with the rural areas and gain shared benefits.

5 High-tech development should be promoted in the clean and low-carbon energy industry, to accelerate the innovation and upgrading of smart-photovoltaics.

6 The standards of solar and wind power industry should be promoted to be internationalized. All regions, industry associations, enterprises and relevant institutions need to make stricter local standards, industry standards and enterprise standards in accordance with the law.
