Countries around the world are seeking to accelerate the energy transition to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality. On Oct 20, 2022, the Chaozhou Municipal People's Government of Guangdong Province released the 14th Five-Year Plan for Chaozhou's Energy Development.

According to the plan, two offshore wind power sites are planned in the exclusive economic zone outside the territorial sea line south of Chaozhou, with an initial planned total capacity of 43.3 million kilowatts.

As follows

Located in the exclusive economic zone outside the territorial sea line south of Chaozhou City and Shantou City, Dongchang Site 6 is about 72 kilometers from the nearest shore and 160 kilometers from the furthest shore, with a water depth of 15-50 meters, with a preliminary planned capacity of 10.8 million kW.

Located in the exclusive economic zone outside the territorial sea line southeast of Chaozhou city, Dongchang Site 7 is about 75 kilometers from the nearest shore to 185 kilometers from the farthest, with a water depth of 11-50 meters and a preliminary planned capacity of 32.5 million kW. We will actively promote the development of wind power with emphasis on offshore wind power. We will actively strive for the 10-million-kilowatt offshore wind power base in eastern Guangdong to be located in Chaozhou, orderly promote the demonstration development of Chaozhou offshore wind power projects in accordance with relevant national and provincial requirements, and promote the large-scale development of offshore wind power.

To develop offshore wind industry cluster combined with the industrial foundation condition, chaozhou site resources characteristics, port conditions, etc., and shantou, jieyang, shanwei cities such as existing offshore wind power industry different development, gradually building differentiation, sustainable resource development scale, industrial layout, with the core competitiveness of chaozhou offshore wind industry cluster, To realize the orderly and healthy development of the whole life cycle of Chaozhou offshore wind power industry.

Offshore wind power equipment industry. Combined with the surrounding city sea wind power equipment industry development, strengthen the docking with the domestic fan backbone enterprises, give full play to the city's existing industrial base advantage, differentiation in chaozhou port layout deep sea offshore wind power equipment industry and construction of form a complete set of services, gradually form a unified planning, concentrated and orderly development of the industry. Explore "sea ranch" (integrated aquaculture of offshore fan cages) and hydrogen production from seawater to realize sustainable development of offshore wind power and Marine ecology.

Offshore wind power consumption industry. The layout of pumped storage, offshore wind power hydrogen production, energy storage and other related industries is conducive to solving the problem of offshore wind power consumption.

Offshore wind power extends industry. The new and extended industries of offshore wind power will be arranged, such as offshore ranch, hydrogen energy, energy storage, ocean energy, energy industry Internet, integrated energy island of offshore wind power, and offshore tourism. Editor/Xu Shengpeng
