The 7th cross strait renewable energy industry cooperation and exchange conference between China and Taiwan was held last week in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia. It was mentioned in the conference that the cooperation plan of cross strait renewable energy industry would be accelerated and cooperation in financing platform and alliance would be planned. In addition, China's photovoltaic "leader" program may be incorporated into Taiwan enterprises to strengthen bilateral cooperation.
Liang Zhipeng, deputy director of the new energy department of the National Energy Administration of China, said at the meeting that the growth of renewable energy products and trade between the two sides has been rapid, and many Taiwan enterprises have invested in the mainland of China, and have also begun to cooperate in joint research and testing and certification of technical standards.
After the promulgation of the regulations on the development of renewable energy in 2009, Taiwan's renewable energy market has developed rapidly. At present, there are 2080mw hydropower, 630MW solar photovoltaic, 640mw wind power and 110MW biomass power generation in Taiwan. Among them, photovoltaic power generation has the fastest growth rate, with an increase of 600MW in five years. However, Taiwan's geographical environment has many restrictions on the development of renewable energy power generation. Coupled with the instability of wind and light power generation, the problem of unstable power supply still needs to be overcome. But even so, Taiwan will increase the total installed capacity of renewable energy to 17250mw in 2030, accounting for more than 30% of the total power system, including 8700mw of solar photovoltaic and 4000mw of offshore wind power.
In contrast, the renewable energy in mainland China is developing rapidly, the installed capacity is growing rapidly, and the land is also very vast. Solar photovoltaic power generation is expected to reach the scale of 1000gw in 2050, wind power generation is also expected to reach 800-1000gw, and renewable energy will account for 86% of the total power generation.
Participants said that cross strait cooperation in renewable energy has strong complementarity. In the future, both sides can integrate their advantages and help each other to jointly promote the technological progress and industrial development of renewable energy. Liang Zhipeng particularly mentioned China's "leader" plan recently, which may be incorporated into Taiwan's enterprises for joint development of more advanced photovoltaic products.
At the same time, in terms of wind power generation, Lian Zhaozhi, executive director of the new business promotion center of Taiwan's Dongyuan group, said at the meeting that the two sides could consider cooperation to "go to sea" and cooperate in the world, while also seeking technical breakthroughs in the offshore wind turbine technology on both sides. At present, the two sides have jointly edited the first wind power standard, vertical axis wind turbines, to help Taiwan's wind turbines enter the Chinese mainland market.
Liang Zhipeng said that in the future, the two sides may consider moving towards jointly establishing a renewable energy financing mechanism, including possible cooperation in credit, insurance and financing cooperation platforms.
