The installed capacity of solar thermal power generation has increased to about 600,000 kilowatts! “14th Five-Year Plan for Electric Power Development of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region” issued

On March 29, the Energy Bureau of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region issued the “14th Five-Year Plan for Electric Power Development of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region”, which is a programmatic document for the development of electric power in the region during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period.

In terms of long-term goals, looking forward to 2030, significant progress will be made in the construction of new power systems in the autonomous region, the power industry will achieve carbon peaks, the installed power capacity will exceed 300 million kilowatts, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar will become the main power source, and the total amount of new energy power generation will exceed thermal power generation in total.

The following key excerpts are related to renewable energy and CSP:

The goal of clean energy development during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period is to accelerate the clean and low-carbon transition. The installed capacity of new energy has reached more than 135 million kilowatts. Among them, the installed capacity of wind power is about 89 million kilowatts, the installed capacity of photovoltaic power generation is about 45 million kilowatts, the installed capacity of solar thermal power generation is about 600,000 kilowatts, and the installed capacity of biomass power generation is about 800,000 kilowatts. Pumped storage started construction of 1.2 million kilowatts. Non-fossil energy accounts for about 20% of primary energy consumption, new energy installed capacity accounts for more than 50%, and total new energy power generation accounts for more than 35% of total power generation.

Accelerate the large-scale development of new energy. Promote the construction of new energy bases. Accelerate the construction of large-scale desert and Gobi desert wind power photovoltaic bases. In areas with good new energy resource endowments and conditions for continuous development and development, promote the base and large-scale development of new energy power generation, and build tens of millions of kilowatts of new energy in western and eastern Mongolia. base. Make full use of the abundant wind energy resources along the border and in the Gobi desert, and build a number of large-scale wind power bases in border areas such as Alxa, Bayannaoer, Baotou, Ulanqab and Ximeng. Promote the construction of photovoltaic sand control bases in Ordos, Alxa, Bayannaoer and other regions. Use idle land such as coal mining subsidence areas and open-pit mine dumps in Ordos, Tongliao, Wuhai, Alxa, Bayannaoer, Baotou and other surrounding areas to promote the construction of centralized photovoltaic mining area governance bases in an orderly manner. Optimize and improve the transmission capacity of existing channels, and accelerate the development of multi-energy complementation and integrated development of source, network, load and storage.

In terms of improving the flexibility of the power system, we will develop large-scale new energy storage, vigorously promote the development of power-side energy storage, develop supporting energy storage projects for new energy bases, and configure energy storage devices for not less than 15% (2 hours) of new energy power stations. Deploy a number of multi-energy complementary power stations such as wind-solar storage, wind-solar thermal (storage), and wind-solar water (storage) to improve the overall peak shaving, frequency regulation depth and response rate of the power station, and promote the efficient use of a high proportion of new energy.

In terms of building high-proportion new energy power transmission channels, it is planned to actively explore incremental “wind-solar (fire) storage integration” construction in areas rich in new energy resources, and plan to build a ±660 kV DC power transmission project from Mengxi to Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Equally high proportion of new energy power transmission channels, give priority to the use of new energy power, optimize the scale of supporting energy storage, and in principle, the proportion of renewable energy power in new transmission channels shall not be less than 50%. Combined with the development of flexible DC, energy storage, solar thermal and other technologies, research and demonstrate the development and delivery project of a high proportion of new energy bases in western Mongolia.
