State Grid expects new energy utilization rate to be 96.8% this year

Date:Jan 06, 2020

In 2019, the company's new energy consumption work overcame adverse factors such as rapid growth of installed capacity and decline of load growth. Under the guidance of relevant government policies on installed capacity and consumption, the company formulated and implemented the overall plan for new energy consumption, and made every effort to reduce power consumption. The new installed capacity is stable and orderly, and the utilization rate of new energy reaches a new high. It is estimated that the utilization rate of new energy in the whole year is 96.8%. Representatives from national development and Reform Commission and national energy administration highly affirmed the achievements of new energy consumption of the company.


Affected by the adjustment of the feed in tariff policy and subsidies, the new energy installation will continue to grow rapidly in 2020, the growth of electricity consumption will continue to slow down, the risk of grid security will continue to rise and other adverse factors will be highlighted, and maintaining the high-quality development of new energy will face unprecedented challenges and pressures. At the meeting, all departments and units were required to improve their political positions, enhance the overall concept, strengthen their responsibilities, constantly adapt to the transformation and adjustment of new energy policies, continue to promote and improve the long-term mechanism of promoting new energy consumption, and ensure that the utilization ratio of wind power and photovoltaic power generation in 2020 is above 95% and the target of provincial consumption in key regions is achieved.


Representatives of the participating units said that they will practice the development concept of "green water and green mountain is golden mountain and silver mountain", shoulder the responsibility of the times, implement the company's decision-making and deployment in place, continuously improve the level of new energy utilization, promote higher quality, more efficient and more sustainable development of new energy, and make positive contributions to win the battle against pollution.


Leaders of relevant departments of national development and Reform Commission and national energy administration attended the meeting. Chen Guoping, chief engineer of the company, attended the meeting and made a speech. Leaders of relevant units, such as national dispatching center, State Grid Development Department, finance department, marketing department, Ministry of water resources, Beijing Electric Power Trading Center, North and northwest branches of State Grid, Hebei electric power of State Grid, made speeches.
