Clean Energy

By the end of 2020, the total installed capacity of clean energy in State Grid’s service areas had reached 740GW, accounting for 75% of China’s total installed capacity of green power, and 43% of China’s national total. The installed capacity of hydro, nuclear, wind, solar, and biomass power was respectively 233GW, 30GW, 232GW, 216GW, and 23GW, up 2%, 4%, 37%, 22%, and 28% year on year, making our grid top the world in terms of clean energy intergration.

In 2020, State Grid has made remarkable headway in 32 key tasks on green energy development, grid construction, centralized dispatching, transaction scale and technological innovation. With joint efforts from all stakeholders, clean energy has continued to be better utilized in State Grid’s service areas. Power generated from clean energy reached 1800TWh, up 9% year on year, and accounted for 31.2% of total power generation, 3.2 percentage points higher than the previous year. For new energy generation, though 17.8TWh was curtailed, 97.1% was utilized, up 0.3 percentage points year on year. For hydropower, 14.8TWh was curtailed for peak regulation, down 3% from the previous year, and 98.2% was utilized, up 0.1 percentage points over 2019. By launching campaigns such as “Green Power 7 Days”, “Green Power 9 Days” and “Green Power 15 Days”, Qinghai hit a record of all clean energy power supply for 31 consecutive days, setting an example of China’s clean development for the world.
