On August 8, 2022, the Henan Provincial Government Network released the "Henan Province Comprehensively Accelerating Infrastructure Construction and Stabilizing the Economic Market Work Plan". The plan pointed out: improve the development of new energy. Continue to promote the construction of 4 million kilowatt-class high-quality wind power bases and 4 large-scale utilization demonstration areas of geothermal heating of 10 million square meters, and accelerate the development of pilot projects for rooftop distributed photovoltaics in the whole county and the progress of "photovoltaic +" characteristic projects. The installed capacity of renewable energy power generation has reached more than 50 million kilowatts.

In the announced list of key projects to comprehensively accelerate infrastructure construction and stabilize the economy, there are 7 new energy projects with a total investment of 18.74 billion yuan. Among them, there are 6 wind power projects with a total capacity of 1GW and a total investment of 6.74 billion yuan; 1 photovoltaic project with a total capacity of 3GW and a total investment of 12 billion yuan.

Optimize the power grid source and storage. Implement the Shaanxi-Henan DC power transmission project, and strive to introduce more than 100 billion kWh/year of electricity from outside the province by 2025. Implemented a number of pumped storage power stations such as Lushan Huayuangou, with an additional installed capacity of 1.8 million kilowatts. Strengthen the construction of the provincial-level 500 kV main grid centered on the Zhengzhou metropolitan area, promote the optimization and upgrading of the 220 kV support grid in the city, and build a domestic first-class modern urban distribution network and a leading rural power grid in central China.Editor/Zhao E
