2013 wind power installations and production by province
In 2013, the National Energy Agency has adopted a series of policies and measures to promote the sustained and healthy development of the wind power industry。Strengthening the guiding role of planning, implementing the annual development plan of wind power, strengthening the construction of the wind power industry monitoring and evaluation system, taking targeted measures to solve the problem of wind power curtailment, orderly advancing wind power base construction, continued to maintain a steady and rapid development momentum。
In 2013, nationwide newly installed grid-connected wind power capacity was 14.49 GW, with cumulative grid-connected capacity reaching 77.16 GW, an increase of 23%。Annual electricity production was 134.9 TWh, an increase of 34%。Wind power equipment productivity reached 2,074 full-load hours, an increase of 184 hours。Average curtailment was 11%, a reduction of 6 percentage points compared with 2012。Nationwide new approvals were for 30.69 GW of capacity, with cumulative approved capacity reaching 137 GW, and total capacity under construction of 60.23 GW。
In 2013, the national wind power project distribution has been optimized, the problem of wind power curtailment in the "Three Norths" region saw clear improvement, wind power development accelerated in the central, eastern and southern regions, the efficiency of subsidies further improved, the recovery of the wind power equipment manufacturing industry sped up, 338 wind turbine units with a total capacity of 650 MW were exported to the United States, Italy, Australia and other 21 countries and regions。
In 2014 the National Energy Agency will further optimize the layout of wind power development, and actively promote the development and construction of offshore wind power, combined with air pollution prevention and control, accelerate and promote clean energy alternatives. There will be orderly construction of the second phase of the Chengde wind power base project, planning of Wulanchabu and Xilinguole wind power bases, and research and demonstration of "wind and thermal power bundling" by using the Hami-Zhengzhou ± 800 kV transmission line. The accumulation of operating experience in this wind power consumption demonstration project, will be used for carrying out wind power consumption demonstration in the 12 'air pollution control' transmission channels under planning and construction, striving to promote the sustained and healthy development of the wind power industry 。By the end of 2014, China's installed capacity of wind power is expected to exceed 90 GW, with annual electricity generation reaching 175 TWh。
