On December 22, the 2020 annual meeting of China energy policy research and the fourth quarter meeting of “China Power Roundtable” were held in Beijing. A representative said at the meeting that the national energy administration has put forward the goal of “adding 120 million kilowatts of wind power and solar power in China by 2021”. The news has also been confirmed by relevant people from the national energy administration.

According to the statistics of the national energy administration, from 2014 to 2019, the total new scale of wind power and solar power generation in China will be 33 million, 48 million, 54 million, 68 million, 65 million and 56 million kilowatts respectively, and about 46 million kilowatts will be added from January to October 2020. Although the annual newly added capacity is up to 68 million kilowatts, it is still lower than the average growth rate of 74 million kilowatts in the next 10 years, and it is also significantly lower than the 2021 development target of 120 million kilowatts.

Note: no matter whether the Energy Bureau’s installation target can be achieved or not, the general tone of vigorously developing wind power is set!
