Renewable energy is a natural green energy that does not emit pollutants or greenhouse gases. Its rapid development has laid a solid foundation for the construction of ecological civilization.The 14th Five-Year Plan is a critical and critical period for the transformation to low-carbon energy. We will push forward the steady realization of the carbon peak and carbon neutral targets, and the "staying power" of the development of renewable energy should not be slurred.
Fast-growing renewable energy is becoming a major force in China's drive to reach a carbon peak and be carbon neutral.At a recent press conference held by the State Council Information Office, a person in charge of the National Energy Administration said that China's renewable energy development and utilization scale ranks first in the world, providing strong support for green and low-carbon energy transformation.By the end of 2020, China's total installed capacity of renewable energy power generation had reached 930 million kW, accounting for 42.4% of the total installed capacity, an increase of 14.6 percentage points over 2012, laying a solid foundation for achieving the goal of achieving carbon peak and carbon neutral.
In the history of the development of renewable energy in the world, China has made remarkable progress in this regard.By the end of 2020, China's installed renewable energy capacity was 370 million kilowatts of hydropower, 280 million kilowatts of wind power, 250 million kilowatts of photovoltaic power and 29.52 million kilowatts of biomass power, ranking first in the world for 16 consecutive years, 11 consecutive years, 6 consecutive years and 3 consecutive years, respectively.At the same time, the use of renewable energy has continued to improve, with non-fossil energy accounting for 15.9 percent of primary energy consumption, fulfilling the solemn promise of 15% of non-fossil energy consumption by 2020 as scheduled.
Renewable energy is a natural green energy that does not emit pollutants or greenhouse gases. Its rapid development has laid a solid foundation for the construction of ecological civilization.In 2020, the scale of renewable energy development and utilization will reach 680 million tons of standard coal, equivalent to replacing nearly 1 billion tons of coal, reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide by about 1.79 billion tons, 864,000 tons and 798,000 tons respectively, providing a strong guarantee for the battle against air pollution.
At the same time, China actively promotes the clean utilization of urban and rural organic waste and other biomass energy to improve the living environment;We will actively explore photovoltaic sand control models that combine desert control, photovoltaic power generation, and cultivation and aquaculture, promote the combination of photovoltaic development and ecological restoration, and realize coordinated development and complement of renewable energy development and ecological progress.
The 14th Five-Year Plan is a critical period for the transformation to low-carbon energy, and the burden of the energy revolution has become much heavier.During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption in China will increase from 12.1 percent to 15.9 percent. By 2030, the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption will reach about 25 percent. This means an average annual increase of 0.9 percentage points over the next 10 years, which is equivalent to an average annual increase of about 70 million tons of standard coal.Therefore, to achieve the carbon peak and carbon neutral target steadily, the "staying power" of the development of renewable energy should not be loosened.
Next, want to develop a more positive new energy development goals, vigorously promote the new era of renewable energy on a large scale, high rate, high quality, market development, speed up the implementation of renewable energy alternative action, to improve the new energy given and storage capacity, actively build new energy as the main body of the new type of power system, consummate the beneficial to the whole society of common development and utilization of renewable energy systems and mechanisms and policy system, vigorously promote energy from renewable energy green low carbon transformation of the powerhouse grow into carbon up to the peak, the main force of carbon neutral, for building low-carbon clean, safe and efficient energy systems provide a strong guarantee.
