China's wind power installed capacity is expected to regain its dominance
On November 9, Ms. Dong Xiufen, Director of the New Energy and Renewable Energy Division of the National Energy Administration, said at the 2nd Beijing International New Energy Summit Forum in 2011 that wind power installed capacity will reach 45 million kilowatts by the end of this year, which is expected to surpass the United States. Installed capacity.
She also said that this data is also likely to be in line with the United States and is still in the statistics. However, it is worth noting that as a national strategic emerging industry, China's wind power installed capacity has doubled since 2005.
In 2005, China's wind power installed capacity was only 1.26 million kilowatts. At the end of 2009, this data reached 25.8 million kilowatts, surpassing Germany to become the world's second. After the rapid development in 2010, China's wind power installed capacity reached 31.31 million kilowatts at the end of 2010, surpassing the United States and ranking first in the world.
She also revealed that according to the new energy plan currently being implemented by the National Energy Administration, the wind power installed capacity reached 100 million kilowatts in 2015, and the installed capacity of solar energy is about 15 million kilowatts. At the same time, 100 new energy cities will be built in the process of the 12th Five-Year Plan. 1000 new energy districts.
The China National Development and Reform Commission Energy Research Institute recently released the "China Wind Power Development Roadmap 2050" report shows that by 2020, 2030 and 2050, China's wind power installed capacity will reach 200 million, 400 million and 1 billion kilowatts respectively, becoming China's top five One of the power supplies. By 2050, wind power will meet 17% of domestic electricity demand.
The United States began its attempt to generate wind power as early as the early 1980s, but it was limited until 2000. With the growing momentum of global clean energy and renewable energy in recent years, the United States has also accelerated the pace of wind power development, especially since 2006, maintaining a relatively fast development rate. By 2009, the total installed capacity of wind power reached 35.16 million kilowatts. In the world, wind power accounts for 2.4% of total power generation.
However, in 2010, the installed capacity of wind power in the United States was less than one-third of that in China. In that year, the cumulative installed capacity of China's wind power increased by 64% to more than 42 million kilowatts, while the newly installed capacity of wind power in the United States was only 5.1 million kilowatts, which is less than one-third of China's newly installed installed capacity of 16.5 million kilowatts.
