People’s Daily Online, Beijing, June 11 (Shen Jiaping) According to the official website of the National Development and Reform Commission, in order to give full play to the role of electricity price signals, it is reasonable To guide investment, promote the efficient use of resources, and promote the high-quality development of new energy industries such as photovoltaic power generation and wind power, the National Development and Reform Commission recently released”About New Energy in 2021The Notice on Matters Concerning the On-grid Tariff Policy” and the”Notice” require that newly filed centralized photovoltaic power plants, industrial and commercial distributed photovoltaic projects, and newly approved onshore wind power projects (hereinafter referred to as” New projects”), the central government will no longer subsidize, and implement parity on the Internet. The”Notice” will be implemented from August 1, 2021.

Newly built photovoltaic power generation and wind power projects have met the conditions for parity grid access

In recent years, the National Development and Reform Commission has gradually established and improved the on-grid tariff policy, which is important for the promotion of wind power and photovoltaic power generation. The sustained and healthy development of the power generation industry has played an important role. Relevant comrades in charge of the National Development and Reform Commission answered the question of Reporter revealed that by the end of 2020, my country’s installed wind and photovoltaic power generation capacity will reach About 530 million kilowatts, 18 times that of 10 years ago.

The responsible comrade pointed out that with the advancement of industrial technology and efficiency improvement, the cost of new photovoltaic power generation and wind power projects has been declining in recent years, and the conditions for parity grid access are now available, and the industry has also formed a high degree of consensus on parity grid access.

“Clarify that new projects in 2021 will no longer use competitive methods to form specific on-grid tariffs, and directly implement local coal-fired power generationBase price, which releases a clear and strong price signal, which is conducive to mobilizing investment enthusiasm from all parties, promoting the accelerated development of wind power and photovoltaic power generation industries, and promoting the construction of new power systems with new energy as the main body. To achieve the goal of carbon peak and carbon neutrality.” The responsible comrade said.

Ensure that new photovoltaic power generation and wind power projects achieve better returns

According to the 2021 on-grid tariff policy, whether new photovoltaic power generation and wind power projects can achieve better returns? Good profit? The responsible comrades of the National Development and Reform Commission pointed out, “When studying and formulating the on-grid tariff policy in 2021, an important aspect we consider is to ensure that new wind power and photovoltaic power generation projects can achieve better returns, so as to give full play to the role of electricity price signals, rationally guide investment, Promote the efficient use of resources and promote the high-quality development of the industry.”

He also revealed that according to estimates, under the condition of implementing the benchmark price of coal-fired power generation in various places, the whole life cycle of new photovoltaic and onshore wind power projects The national average rate of return is at a good level, new projects, technology and efficiency in provinces with good resource conditions Leading new projects can achieve better returns.

It is worth mentioning that, considering that some electricity users want to directly carry out market transactions with new energy power generation companies to purchase green electricity and pay higher prices, the”Notice” also clarifies that the on-grid electricity price for new projects in 2021 , Implemented according to the local benchmark price of coal-fired power generation; new projects can voluntarily participate in market-oriented transactions to form on-grid electricity prices to better reflect the green power value of photovoltaic power generation and wind power.

Offshore wind power, CSP on-grid electricity prices can be competitive The configuration method is formed

The “Notice” proposes that starting from 2021, the on-grid tariffs for newly approved (recorded) offshore wind power projects and solar thermal power generation projects shall be set by the local provincial-level price authorities, and qualified It can be formed through a competitive allocation method. If the on-grid electricity price is higher than the local benchmark price of coal-fired power generation, the part within the benchmark price will be settled by the grid company.

The responsible comrade said that this arrangement will help localities to rationally formulate on-grid tariff policies for new offshore wind power and solar thermal power generation projects based on local resource conditions, development plans, and support policies. At the same time, various localities are encouraged to introduce targeted support policies to support the sustainable and healthy development of new energy industries such as offshore wind power and solar thermal power generation.

In addition, the National Development and Reform Commission emphasizes that it encourages localities to introduce targeted support policies to support the sustainable and healthy development of new energy industries such as photovoltaic power generation, onshore wind power, offshore wind power, and solar thermal power generation.
