"Carbon emission reduction is largely a matter of energy development. China must always adhere to the energy-saving priority strategy, and accelerate the development of renewable energy such as wind, solar, and biomass energy by improving energy efficiency, and gradually replace fossil energy." 2021 The Belt and Road Clean Energy Development Forum was held on November 27, 2021 in Xining, Qinghai. The participating experts gave positive comments on the carbon reduction efficiency of clean energy industry development.

With more than 100,000 square kilometers of desertified land, it can be used for photovoltaic power generation and wind farm construction. The theoretically developable photovoltaic resources can reach 3.5 billion kilowatts, and the developable wind energy technology can reach 75.55 million kilowatts. Relying on the unique advantages of resources, Qinghai Power Grid has become a nationwide The provincial power grid with the highest proportion of clean energy and new energy installed capacity is Qinghai's confidence to achieve the "dual carbon" goal through energy transformation and development.

The dark blue photovoltaic panels are shining, the blades of the wind generators fly in the wind, the 100-meter-high heat-absorbing tower and thousands of mirrors form a scientific and technological molten salt tower-type CSP station, looking at Qinghai In the Green Industry Development Park of Gonghe County, Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, the herder Wujin Dorje did not expect that Tala Beach, a semi-desertification "land of wind and sand", has now become a tens of thousands of kilowatts of new energy base.

“It used to be a deserted beach with no grass growing in all seasons. The wind and sand are raging and the blue sky is hard to see.” Wujin Dorje, who has lived here since childhood, said with emotion. Evaporation of soil water has decreased, and more and more land is covered by vegetation.

This comprehensive park with photovoltaic, wind power and solar thermal power generation. The installed capacity of new energy has exceeded 10 million kilowatts. Based on the existing installed capacity of new energy, it can save 7,369,600 tons of standard coal and reduce 941.46 tons of smoke and dust each year. , 22.372 million tons of carbon dioxide.

Qinghai is the birthplace of the Yellow River, the Yangtze River and the Lancang River. It is blessed with solar and wind energy resources. Only the theoretical installed capacity of solar energy accounts for about 11% of the country. The local market for photovoltaic power generation in Qinghai is difficult to completely absorb.

In order to realize the cross-provincial consumption of "green electricity" and promote the east, middle and west carbon reduction cooperation, in 2020, across the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the Central Plains, the world's first UHV line that mainly transmits "green electricity"-Qinghai-Henan ± The 800kV UHV DC project was put into operation. Since then, many residents of the Central Plains have the same lamp in their homes, and the electricity used to drive them has been "green electricity" from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau thousands of miles away.

"Relying on the complementary capabilities of clean energy, the Qingyu UHV Project has achieved a breakthrough in the long-distance and large-scale transmission of new energy. One second of power transmission is enough for an ordinary family to use for two years." Qingyu UHV starting point, Qingnan converter station director According to Li Binshan, according to the current designed annual transmission power, the Qingyu DC project can deliver 40 billion kilowatt-hours of clean electricity in Qinghai Province to central China each year, which is equivalent to replacing 18 million tons of raw coal and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 29.6 million tons.

In the Pingbei Economic Zone of Haidong Industrial Park in Qinghai Province, a "zero-carbon" industrial park with 100% "green electricity" supply is under planning and construction. The professionals participating in the forum believe that the level of carbon emissions is becoming an important factor in determining the international competitiveness of the industry. This will also be Qinghai's "magic weapon" for overtaking at the corner of economic development through a characteristic industry cluster with near-zero carbon emissions.

As the largest power company in Qinghai, the State Power Investment Corporation’s Upper Yellow River Hydropower Development Co., Ltd. has built 10 cascade hydropower stations in the upper reaches of the Yellow River since the 1970s, including Longyangxia and Laxiwa, which effectively guarantees the safety and power supply of the Northwest Power Grid. Lay the industrial foundation for the development of clean energy in Qinghai.

"Development is for the people, and the fundamental purpose of clean energy development is to meet people's needs for the ecological environment and high-quality life." Jiang Yi, deputy secretary and general manager of the SPIC Party Group, said that SPIC will develop hydropower and new energy development and Research on the impact mechanism and regulation mechanism of the ecological environment, carry out basic investigations on carbon reduction and increase in sinks, and support the coordinated advancement of ecological protection, "dual-carbon" actions, and clean energy development.

In the context of national thermal power generation as the mainstay, Qinghai Province on the "roof of the world" is promoting the low-carbon transformation of energy with a rapidly developing clean energy industry, helping to achieve the goal of "carbon neutrality and carbon peaking", showing Qinghai to the world The "Carbon Reduction Practice" of "Green Power".Editor/XuNing
