2015 National renewable power development monitoring and evaluation report

 

Development and Reform Commissions (Energy Administrations) of provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities), State Grid Corporation, China Southern Power Grid Company, Inner Mongolia Electric Power Company, and other relevant units:

In order to promote the development and utilization of renewable energy, scientifically assess the local development of renewable energy in different, and to ensure the strategic objective of reaching 15% and 20% of non-fossil fuels in national primary energy consumption by 2020, and 2030, respectively。In accordance with the "National Energy Administration's Guiding opinions on the establishment of a target setting system for the development and utilization of renewable energy (NEA, Dept. for new and renewable energy [2016] No. 54)", the NEA commissioned the National Renewable Energy Center to compile monitoring data on the construction and operation of renewable power generation, and after conferring with and review by local energy authorities and grid enterprises, created the "2015 National renewable power development monitoring and evaluation report" (hereinafter referred to as the monitoring and evaluation report)。

Hereby notice is given of the monitoring and evaluation report, which may serve as basic data informing local renewable energy development planning and implementation tasks. Relevant local authorities and units are asked to attach great importance to the development of renewable power generation, to take effective measures to promote renewable power generation development and to improve the level of utilization of renewable power, and make an active contribution to attaining the national target for the share of non-fossil energy in total energy consumption 。

Annex:

Renewable power development monitoring indicators and calculation method

1. The provincial (regional, city-level) renewable electricity consumption includes the local ​​renewable power generation, with inter-provincial imports of renewable electricity added, and inter-provincial exports of renewable electricity subtracted。

Renewable electricity consumption within the province (autonomous region, municipality) = local ​​renewable electricity generation - inter-provincial exports of renewable electricity + inter-provincial imports of renewable electricity

2. The provincial (regional, city-level) share of renewable electricity is equal to the provincial (regional, city-level) renewable electricity consumption divided by total electricity consumption in the respective locality。

3. The provincial (regional, city-level) total electricity consumption and renewable electricity production, will be determined on the basis of statistics on the power industry published by the National Bureau of Statistics and information mechanisms recognized by the national government 。

4. Inter-provincial and inter-regional volumes of renewable electricity traded, will be determined on the basis of statistics provided by the State Grid Corporation, China Southern Power Grid Company and the Inner Mongolia Electric Power Company。

5. In inter-provincial or inter-regional renewable power trading, there are two possible cases; "province to province", and "province to region"。In the case of "province to region", for example when East or Central China accepts renewable electricity input from provinces outside of the region, the import of renewable electricity into each province within the region will be calculated using the proportion of total electricity consumption of each province as a share of the regional grids total electricity consumption。That is:

\small Imported\,electricity\,into\,province\,(autonomous\,region,\,city) _{i}\,=\,\\ \small imported\,renewable\,electricity\times\left(\frac{total\,electricity\,consumption\,in\,province\,(autonomous\,region,\,city) _{i}}{\sum_{i=1}^n total\,electricity\,consumption\,in\,province\,(autonomous\,region,\,city)_{i}}\right)

where n denotes all provinces (autonomous region, city) within the regional grid

6. The Jing-Jin-Ji power grid (Beijing, Tianjin, North Hebei, South Hebei grid) is a special area. For the purposes of calculating the share of non-hydro renewable electricity in total electricity consumption, non-hydro renewable electricity from centralized projects and from inter-provincial imports are shared uniformly, whilst non-hydro renewable electricity generation from distributed projects within each area is counted towards the respective area。
