De­vel­op­ment goals for re­new­able en­ergy in­dus­try in China

China's Foreign Trade (English) - - Special Report -

China will con­tinue to en­cour­age the de­vel­op­ment and utiliza­tion of re­new­able en­ergy, and in­crease its pro­por­tion in to­tal en­ergy con­sump­tion. It is ex­pected that re­new­able en­ergy tech­nol­ogy and in­de­pen­dent in­no­va­tion ca­pa­bil­ity and equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing level will be sub­stan­tially im­proved, and a sound re­new­able en­ergy in­dus­trial sys­tem will be im­ple­mented.

By 2020, an­nual use of re­new­able en­ergy will reach an equiv­a­lent of 730 mil­lion tons of stan­dard coal. Var­i­ous re­new­able en­ergy heat­ing sys­tems and sus­tain­able fuel will help re­duce the con­sump­tion of fos­sil fu­els by about 150 mil­lion tons of stan­dard coal, while the com­mer­cial utiliza­tion of re­new­able en­ergy will ac­count for up to 580 mil­lion tons of stan­dard coal, or 12.1% of the to­tal en­ergy con­sump­tion.

From the per­spec­tive of re­new­able en­ergy power gen­er­a­tion, by 2020, the to­tal in­stalled ca­pac­ity of re­new­able en­ergy will reach 680 mil­lion kilo­watts, and the elec­tric­ity pro­duc­tion comes to 1.9 tril­lion kwh, ac­count­ing for 27% of the to­tal out­put. Specif­i­cally, the ca­pac­ity of con­ven­tional hy­dropower (in­clud­ing pumped stor­age) will be 380 mil­lion kilo­watts, wind power at least 210 mil­lion kilo­watts, so­lar power ap­prox­i­mately 110 mil­lion kilo­watts, and biomass power around 15 mil­lion kilo­watts. The elec­tric­ity pro­duc­tion from re­new­able en­ergy will be 1.86 tril­lion kwh. As to re­new­able en­ergy heat­ing and fuel, China will con­tinue to ex­pand so­lar ther­mal utiliza­tion to 800 mil­lion square me­ters, geo­ther­mal heat­ing (cool­ing) area to 1.8 bil­lion square me­ters, as well as in­crease the con­sump­tion of biomass mould­ing fu­els to 30 mil­lion tons, bio-nat­u­ral gas to 8 bil­lion cu­bic me­ters, and bio-liq­uid fu­els to 6 mil­lion tons.
