Interpretation|Green electricity trading mechanism will effectively promote the rapid development of new energy
In 2030, my country's installed wind and solar power generation capacity is expected to reach over 1.2 billion kilowatts, and new energy sources will continue to maintain a rapid development momentum. In the future, new energy sources such as wind power and solar energy will become the main power source of my country's power system, and the design of rules for the national power market needs to be transformed and optimized in the direction of promoting the consumption of new energy.
In response to the decision and deployment of the Party Central Committee and the State Council to accelerate the establishment of a green and low-carbon circular development economic system, in accordance with the relevant guidelines of the National Development and Reform Commission for pilot green power trading, the State Grid Corporation and China Southern Power Grid Corporation established the green power power trading market mechanism , Which not only enriches the varieties of electricity market transactions, but also transmits to the society the value signal of the green environment of new energy power generation, which greatly enhances the confidence and determination of energy companies and social capital to continue to invest in the new energy industry, and is important for accelerating the scientific development of my country's new energy industry. Play a key role in boosting.
The green environmental value of new energy power generation has been effectively tapped, and the emission reduction path for end users has been broadened
At present, all walks of life across the country are actively formulating a road map to achieve carbon peak and carbon neutral goals. Direct use of clean energy alternatives such as green power can effectively reduce emissions from energy sources, while demonstrating corporate social environmental responsibility. Effectively enhance corporate brand influence.
The "Green Power Trading Pilot Work Plan" approved by the National Development and Reform Commission establishes a green power trading mechanism from the top-level design, which fully reflects the power commodity value and environmental value of green power. Power users purchase green power from new energy companies through bilateral transactions. Electricity not only meets the energy demand for production, but also obtains traceable green environmental value rights and interests. Green power trading not only helps energy-consuming companies broaden their emission reduction paths, but also optimizes the energy consumption structure. At the same time, it highlights the green environmental value attributes of new energy power generation.
Green power trading effectively increases the income of new energy companies and has a positive impact on the development of the new energy industry
New energy power generation such as wind power and solar energy has the characteristics of intermittent and instability. As large-scale and high proportion of new energy is connected to the grid, it will bring huge challenges to the safe and stable operation of the power system.
Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission and various local governments have successively issued relevant policies requiring new energy projects to construct or purchase energy storage, pumped storage and other peak shaving energy storage system adjustment capabilities. There is still room for optimization in aspects such as economy. The large-scale and large-scale increase of investment in such projects by new energy companies will increase investment costs, especially as the country’s new energy has entered the era of parity online, high-quality wind and light resources for development are increasing. Under the more scarce environment, the business development of new energy companies will be under certain pressure.
How to improve investment confidence in the new energy industry has become an urgent problem to be solved. The establishment and implementation of the green electricity trading mechanism will effectively increase the operating income of new energy companies and hedge the operating risks of high costs of investment or purchasing peak shaving capabilities. This will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the sustainable development of the new energy industry.
Green electricity trading and green certificate trading run synchronously to maintain the consistency of green environmental value
The issue of the certification and management of green power's green environmental value attributes has always attracted much attention. The process of green power from production to transaction to verification and write-off requires a complete scientific and complete management system to maintain the consistency of its green environmental value.
Before the release of the "Green Power Trading Pilot Program", power users usually purchase green certificates to meet their own green environmental value needs. After the establishment of the green power trading market, green power products have been enriched and sales channels have been diversified. The two markets, green power trading and green certificate trading, operate simultaneously to give full play to their respective roles and ultimately ensure that the green environmental value of new energy power generation is effectively reflected.
It is recommended that green electricity, green certificates and the carbon trading market be gradually connected to help achieve the goal of carbon reduction
With the gradual implementation of the carbon peak and carbon neutral targets, my country's energy structure will undergo tremendous changes. To this end, it is necessary to actively explore the effective connection between green power, green certificates and the carbon trading market, and encourage power users to use traceable, evaluable, and certifiable green power products, that is, to help users achieve emission reductions from energy consumption and reduce consumption. Of green power will be reduced or exempted during the carbon emission verification, thereby encouraging the consumption of green power in all walks of life, forming a benign green energy consumption circular economy system, and promoting the high-quality, sustainable and healthy development of the new energy industry.
The establishment of a green power trading market is a major measure of my country’s power market under the strategic goal of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality. It will promote the optimization and adjustment of the energy consumption structure on the power user side, and realize the coordinated and unified development of source network load storage and multi-energy complementary , To further improve the comprehensive regulation capability of the power system, and help the healthy and orderly development of the new energy industry.
China General Nuclear Power New Energy Holdings Co., Ltd. has always been on the road of green and low-carbon development. During the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, we will increase the installed capacity of more than 7 million kilowatts per year and strive to reach 60 million kilowatts of new energy by 2025. Installed capacity. At the same time, we will actively participate in green power transactions, continue to provide power users with high-quality green energy, implement the concept of green development, and contribute to the realization of the national carbon peak and carbon neutral goals!
