Experts Say There Is An Urgent Need To Transform And Upgrade Industries With Big Potential In The Renewable Energy Market
- Jun 13, 2018 -

On June 11, experts said that the renewable energy market has great potential, but the industry is in urgent need of transformation and upgrading.

According to hu runqing of the energy research institute of the national development and reform commission, the renewable energy market will reach 74.84 million tons of standard coal equivalent in 2017.Among them, the solar energy reaches 57.24 million tons of standard coal equivalent, the geothermal energy reaches 12.5 million tons of standard coal equivalent, and the biomass energy reaches 5 million tons of standard coal equivalent.

According to the opinion of promoting renewable energy heating (draft), by 2020, the national renewable energy heating area of 3.5 billion square metre, about 2.8 billion square meters, more than 2015 renewable energy heating a total of about 150 million tons of standard coal.In the beijing-tianjin-hebei region and surrounding areas, the area of renewable energy heating has reached 1 billion square meters, and the area of renewable energy heating (refrigeration) in the Yangtze river delta has reached 500 million square meters.In urban and rural areas, a large scale of renewable energy is realized to replace the civil bulk coal heating.

Hu pointed out that the development status of renewable energy is still far from the development target of the 13th five-year plan, and the market of some areas of renewable energy has declined.The solar sector, for example, has fallen for three consecutive years since 2014, with annual declines of more than 15 per cent.

Zhang dayong, executive deputy secretary general of the China biomass energy industry alliance, said that in the long run, renewable energy power generation is the trend.Taking biomass energy industry as an example, the industry needs to be transformed and upgraded, and related enterprises can be transformed from single biomass power generation to combined heat and electricity production.On this basis, we will upgrade our comprehensive energy services and explore ways to provide electricity, thermal energy and related value-added services.

Biomass fuels mainly include straw, sawdust, bagasse, rice bran and other agricultural and forest wastes.

Biomass now generates about 80 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity a year, or 1.4 per cent of the total, Mr Zhang said.However, biomass power generation is an important way to eliminate urban household garbage and solve a large number of rural agricultural and forest wastes.

Industry insiders point out that a 25 megawatt biomass power plant consumes more than 300, 000 tons of agricultural and forest waste each year.According to the purchase price of 300 yuan per ton, the annual biomass purchasing market of 90 million yuan can be formed.
