State Council: Ensuring power supply and promoting the construction of large-scale photovoltaic bases

On October 8, the State Council of China held an executive meeting to further make arrangements for the supply of electricity and coal this winter and next spring to ensure the basic lives of the people and the smooth operation of the economy. The meeting pointed out that reforming and improving the market-oriented formation mechanism of coal and electricity prices, adjusting the fluctuation range of market transaction electricity prices from no more than 10% and 15%, respectively, to no more than 20% in principle. The industry can form prices through market transactions and is not subject to a 20% rise. Accelerate the construction of large-scale wind power and photovoltaic bases in the Gobi desert area, and accelerate the construction of emergency standby and peak shaving power sources. Resolutely curb the blind development of the “two highs” project. Improve the local energy consumption dual control mechanism, and promote that new renewable energy consumption will not be included in the total energy consumption within a certain period of time. Promote the implementation of energy-saving and carbon-reduction transformations in key areas.

Encourage rooftop distributed photovoltaic development

On September 30, ten ministries and commissions including the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Natural Resources issued the “Notice on Printing and Distributing Guidelines for the Standardized and Healthy Development of National Characteristic Towns.” The “Guidelines” pointed out that characteristic towns should, in accordance with the carbon peak and carbon neutral requirements, coordinate to promote high-quality economic development and high-level protection of the ecological environment. Promote clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient use of energy, guide non-fossil energy consumption and the development of distributed energy, develop rooftop distributed photovoltaics where conditions permit, promote clean heating and contract energy management. Promote low-carbon transformation in industry, construction, transportation and other fields, resolutely curb the blind development of “two highs” projects, vigorously develop green buildings, promote prefabricated buildings, energy-saving doors and windows, and green building materials, and promote green construction.

Tianjin promulgated regulations on promoting carbon peak and carbon neutrality to support the development of non-fossil energy such as solar energy

On September 27, the 29th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 17th Tianjin Municipal People’s Congress reviewed and approved the “Regulations on the Promotion of Carbon Peak Carbon Neutrality in Tianjin”, which will come into force on November 1, 2021. The “Regulations” put forward in the “Green Transition” section to support the development of non-fossil energy such as wind energy, solar energy, geothermal energy, and biomass energy, gradually expand non-fossil energy consumption, coordinate the promotion of hydrogen energy utilization, and promote low-carbon energy to replace high-carbon energy.

Lishui, Zhejiang: Accelerate the promotion of distributed photovoltaics and implement the “Photovoltaic +” project

On October 9, the Development and Reform Commission of Lishui City, Zhejiang Province issued a notice on publicly soliciting opinions on the “Implementation Opinions of the People’s Government of Lishui City on Accelerating the Development of Distributed Photovoltaics (Draft for Solicitation of Comments)”. The “Draft for Comments” requires that the large-scale development of distributed photovoltaic counties (cities, districts) is the starting point, and the “photovoltaic +” project will be fully implemented to promote the high-quality development of the green and low-carbon energy industry, and strive to build a green energy base in East China. Strive to add 1.5 million kilowatts of photovoltaic power to the city during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, and implement policy support for financial rewards and subsidies.

Germany’s third-largest state requires solar energy to be installed on the roofs of all new houses

On October 6, the State Assembly of Baden-Württemberg in Germany passed a legal amendment requiring that from May 1 next year, all newly built houses in the state be installed with solar installations on the roof. From January 1, 2023, all existing buildings in the state will also be retrofitted with solar installations on the roof. This move aims to enable the state to achieve its goal of carbon neutrality by 2030. Baden-Württemberg is the third largest state in area and population in Germany, and the state capital Stuttgart is the headquarters of many well-known companies such as Daimler. 


Kazakhstan: Double the share of renewable energy power generation by 2023

According to the official website of the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, Ma Ming, the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, hosted a video conference of the Council for the Improvement of the Investment Environment on October 9 to study the development of renewable energy and the transition to a “low-carbon economy”. In order to achieve the goal of achieving “carbon neutrality” by 2060 proposed by President Tokayev at the United Nations Climate Ambition Summit, the Kazakh government plans to double the share of renewable energy power generation by 2023 to 6%, compared with the previous one. The planned realization of this goal in 2025 is greatly advanced. In the next four years, the Kazakh government also plans to put into operation more than 60 new renewable energy projects, with a total installed capacity of 2,400 MW and a total investment of more than 2.5 billion US dollars.

Volkswagen & Didi Enter the Photovoltaic Industry

According to foreign media reports, Volkswagen, one of the world’s largest automobile groups, plans to invest 40 million euros to build solar and wind power plants in Europe by 2025. In this regard, Volkswagen CEO Brandstadt said that this move is mainly to meet the additional demand for renewable energy from electric vehicles.

According to Volkswagen’s previously announced plans, 70 electric vehicles (including Audi, Porsche and other models) will be launched in the next 10 years, which naturally involves the issue of electric vehicles. As one of the world’s largest car companies, Volkswagen has already expanded its layout in the photovoltaic field.

As early as 2017, Asia Clean Energy Capital signed a 4.3MW distributed photovoltaic power generation system service agreement with Volkswagen FAW Engine (Dalian) Co., Ltd. The former will be responsible for the investment, construction and operation and maintenance of photovoltaic power generation projects, while the latter will be purchased at an agreed price in order to achieve better energy conservation and environmental protection.

In addition, SAIC Volkswagen, another joint venture of Volkswagen in China, has also built a number of distributed photovoltaic power generation. Its luxury brand Audi also proposed a plan to use photovoltaic storage to supplement the energy of electric vehicles.

The establishment of solar and wind power plants in Europe this time is just another deployment of Volkswagen in the field of renewable energy, and it also indicates that traditional car companies are actively moving towards clean energy.

Coincidentally. Recently, news has also revealed that Xiaoju Energy, a subsidiary of Didi, is hiring talents and experts in the fields of photovoltaics and energy storage. Obviously, Didi is also exploring new businesses in the photovoltaic field.

It is reported that Xiaoju Energy is positioned as an energy retail platform, covering multiple energy forms such as refueling, charging, gas refueling, photovoltaics, and energy storage. In the future, it will build a “TOP1 energy platform and an energy company integrating upstream and downstream industrial chains.”

On the one hand, Didi has already used a large number of electric vehicles to replace petrol vehicles in its operations; on the other hand, Didi is also cooperating with car companies, which will produce customized electric models based on Didi’s car needs. After a long period of operation , There will be a large number of power batteries retired, which can be used in the field of energy storage.

It can be seen that Xiaoju Energy will build a closed loop of photovoltaic power generation, power batteries for energy storage, and supplementary energy for its operating electric vehicles, thereby transforming to renewable energy, and at the same time creating a more complete travel ecology from the travel end to the upstream. .

After photovoltaics entered the era of parity, not only leading companies have expanded their production, but Didi and Volkswagen, which is famous for its fuel vehicles, have also entered photovoltaics, hoping to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to carbon neutrality. It can be seen that photovoltaic is indeed an important option for renewable energy at the moment, or it will attract more companies to expand in the photovoltaic field.
