Deepen Cooperation and Promote New Energy Sustainable Development
On June 16, local time, the International Symposium on New Energy Development and Technology with the theme of "Innovation Leading, Standards Promotion, Cooperation Sharing, and Interconnection" was successfully held in Frankfurt, Germany. The seminar was jointly organized by the State Grid Corporation of China and the International Electrotechnical Commission, and co-organized by the German Association of Electrical Engineers, the German Electrical and Electronics and Information Technology Committee and Siemens. More than 100 representatives from International Energy Agency, International Renewable Energy Agency and other international organizations and government agencies, electric power companies, research institutes, universities, and manufacturing companies attended the conference to jointly exchange new energy and bring rapid development to the energy and power system. Influences and challenges, explore ideas and measures for solving problems.
Chairman of the State Grid Corporation of China and Vice Chairman of the IEC, Shu Yinyu delivered a speech at the conference and delivered a keynote speech titled “Deepen Cooperation, Meet Challenges, and Promote Sustainable Development of New Energy”. Shuyin Yin pointed out that at present, accelerating the development of new energy sources and promoting clean and low-carbon energy transformation have become global trends. The realization of energy transformation is a long-term system project, in which the large-scale development and utilization of new energy is the core measure, and the full re-election of energy production and consumption is the basic approach. The modern, interconnected and intelligent power grid is the basic platform. In recent years, China has promoted the revolution in energy production and consumption as a basic national policy for energy development, issued a series of supporting policies, and actively promoted the development and utilization of new energy. At the end of 2016, the installed capacity of wind power and solar power in China was 150 million kilowatts and 80 million kilowatts respectively, ranking first in the world. At the same time, it has greatly reduced its coal and coal power production capacity, and promoted the substitution of coal for electricity and electricity for oil in the fields of transportation, industry and commerce, and residential life, and withdrew over 440 million tons of coal production capacity from 2016 to 2017, eliminating, suspending, and slowing construction. Build more than 50 million kilowatts of coal power capacity to make room for new energy development.
The State Grid Corporation of China, based on the actual conditions of the power grid and the role of the power grid, has adopted the development of ultra-high voltage transmission to increase the level of intelligence in the power grid, vigorously implemented electrical energy substitution, improved system balance and adjustment capabilities, promoted standardization and internationalization, and made important contributions to the development of new energy in China. contribution. Independently developed the world’s most advanced ultra-high voltage transmission technology, 20 UHV projects are under construction or under construction, and the length of the line is more than 30,000 kilometers. A total of 427 million smart meters were installed, and a number of leading smart grid demonstration projects including multi-terminal flexible DC, unified power flow controllers, and national wind and solar energy storage and transmission were built. As of the end of 2016, the cumulative installed capacity of grid-connected wind power and photovoltaic power generation was 130 million and 70 million kilowatts, which is the largest grid of new energy sources in the world. The company has built a fast charging network for electric vehicles covering 121 cities in China and an intelligent vehicle networking platform with access to 161,000 charging piles, providing a full range of services for 1 million electric vehicles. In the past 20 years, the national grid was the only large grid in the world that did not experience a large-scale blackout.
Shuyin Yin said that vigorously advancing new energy development and utilization, cracking down on various development issues, and promoting global green and low-carbon energy transformation are common responsibilities of governments, enterprises, associations, scientific research institutions, and international organizations. It is recommended to strengthen exchange of experience and deepen technical cooperation. We will deepen standard cooperation, accelerate interconnection and interoperability of the power grid, and jointly meet the challenges posed by the rapid development of new energy sources. The State Grid Corporation of China and the IEC are willing to take this symposium as an opportunity to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with the energy industry and international organizations of various countries, gather consensus and work together to promote the sustainable development of new energy. Facing the important opportunity of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, the State Grid Corporation of China expects to join forces with energy companies of various countries in promoting the interconnection and interoperability of the grid along the grid and the development and utilization of new energy, and to promote the global power demand in a clean and green manner.
During the conference, the State Grid Corporation of China and the German Energy Agency signed a memorandum of understanding and signed a cooperation agreement with the Portuguese National Energy Network Company. The purpose of the agreement is to carry out international exchanges and cooperation in policies, technologies and other aspects to jointly promote the development of new energy.
