Meng Wei, deputy director of the Political Research Office of the national development and Reform Commission and spokesman, said at the meeting that in terms of ensuring energy security, we should speed up the construction of a number of nuclear power and hydropower projects, speed up the construction of large-scale wind power photovoltaic bases focusing on deserts, Gobi and desert areas, and do a solid job in improving the reserve capacity of coal, crude oil and other energy resources.
In addition, as for how to ensure the smooth operation of electricity in summer, Meng Wei said that from the current situation, the installed capacity of power generation in the country is sufficient; Due to better than expected water inflow from major basins, the amount of water that can be generated by key hydropower plants increased significantly year-on-year; The coal storage of national unified dispatching power plants is at a historical high. Therefore, there is a solid foundation for doing a good job in the power security work to meet the peak and spend the summer this year.
In the next step, the national development and Reform Commission will give full play to the role of the inter ministerial coordination mechanism for coal, electricity, oil and gas transportation security, further consolidate the main responsibilities of local and enterprise energy supply, and make every effort to ensure the safe and stable supply of electricity during the peak summer. The focus is on the following aspects.
First, comprehensively strengthen fuel supply guarantee. Take multiple measures to increase coal production and supply, pay close attention to the signing and performance of medium and long-term contracts for electric coal, and concentrate resources to ensure the supply of electric coal and natural gas for peak power generation.
The second is to promote all kinds of generating units to be fully developed. Ensure that the output level of thermal power is better than that of the whole year, generate more hydropower to save electricity and coal consumption, and promote wind power and solar power to generate more power at full capacity and run out of energy.
Third, optimize the operation and scheduling of power grid. We should give full play to the role of the large power grid as a platform for optimizing the allocation of resources, strengthen the mutual assistance between surplus and shortage across regions and provinces, standardize the start of emergency dispatching, and ensure the orderly supply of electricity. Fourth, improve the emergency supply guarantee plan. We should encourage market-oriented demand response to reduce the peak power gap, urge all localities to refine and improve emergency supply plans under various circumstances, and carry out practical emergency drills in advance, so as to be prepared and ensure that people's livelihood and key energy use will not be affected under extreme conditions.
