Photovoltaic power generation projects accelerate their transformation to green and low-carbon

Release Date:

Photovoltaic power generation is one of the renewable energy sources with the greatest resource potential and the best development foundation in Beijing. Promoting high-quality development in photovoltaic power generation plays a crucial role in advancing urban green development, high-quality development, supporting the green and low-carbon transformation of energy, and increasing the proportion of renewable energy utilization.

In March of this year, the Beijing Development and Reform Commission, in conjunction with the Municipal Finance Bureau, Municipal Planning and Natural Resources Commission, and Municipal Housing and Urban-Rural Development Commission, jointly issued the "Notice on Promoting High-Quality Development Support Policies for Photovoltaic Power Generation." Through comprehensive measures such as planning guidance, financial support, and enhanced management, the quality of photovoltaic power generation development throughout the city has been improved, and plans have been made for a batch of pilot projects.

Following a process of open solicitation, commissioned evaluation, and public disclosure, the first list of fixed asset investment-supported photovoltaic power generation projects was released at the end of August by the municipal government. These projects encompass various fields such as new technologies, new materials, new applications, infrastructure, public institutions, facility agriculture, and industrial parks.

How will these projects "capture the sunlight"?Let's delve into the details through two examples:

Unique "Green Electricity" Projects to Be Grid-Connected by the End of 2023

Beijing Shijingshan Waterworks Rooftop Distributed Photovoltaic Power Generation Project

Located in Shijingshan District, south of Langshan Road in Pingguoyuan Street, this project will utilize the rooftops of Beijing Shijingshan Waterworks filter equipment rooms, distribution rooms, concentration tanks, and clearwater tanks to build a photovoltaic power generation system. It will be equipped with 2,324 monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic modules with a capacity of 1.3 megawatts. Once completed, it will operate under a "self-generation and self-use, surplus electricity to the grid" mode, primarily providing renewable energy to the waterworks. The project is expected to be grid-connected in October of this year, with an annual average electricity generation of 1,398,600 kilowatt-hours.

Beijing Aquarium Rooftop Distributed Photovoltaic Power Generation Project

Situated at No. 6 Courtyard, Qi Xiang Road, Beixiaguan Street, Haidian District, this project will utilize the rooftops of Beijing Aquarium to install a photovoltaic power generation system with a capacity of 2.07 megawatts. Its main purpose is to provide renewable energy to the Beijing Aquarium. Currently, the project is already grid-connected, with an annual average electricity generation of 2,318,500 kilowatt-hours.

The projects receiving funding support also include the Lucheng Community Sports Center Distributed Photovoltaic Power Generation Project, the Beijing Urban Sub-Center Administrative Office Area Phase II Starter Area FZX-0901-160 Distributed Photovoltaic Project, the Gaoantun Reclaimed Water Plant Distributed Photovoltaic Power Generation Project, the Beijing Metro Line 15 Maquanying Vehicle Yard Distributed Photovoltaic Project, the Administrative Office Area (C03, C05, C08) 1031-kilowatt Distributed Photovoltaic Power Generation Project in Liuhedu Village of the Urban Sub-Center, the Pinggu District Daxingzhuang Town Agricultural Science and Technology Plant Photovoltaic Power Generation Project, and the Baidu Industrial Park Distributed Photovoltaic Energy-Saving Project.

According to the Development and Reform Commission, all of these nine projects have commenced construction and are planned to be grid-connected successively by the end of 2023.

Promoting photovoltaic power generation is a manifestation of green development principles.

These nine projects effectively utilize urban infrastructure and resources, aligning with the requirements of "high-level planning, high-quality construction, high-level application, high-efficiency service, and high-standard management." They are conducive to promoting high-quality development in photovoltaic power generation throughout the city.

Supporting the Increase of Renewable Energy Utilization

The combined installed capacity of these nine photovoltaic power generation projects exceeds 11.4 megawatts, with an estimated annual electricity generation of 13 million kilowatt-hours. This is equivalent to approximately 3,500 tons of standard coal saved annually, further increasing the city's renewable energy generation capacity and the proportion of renewable energy utilization. This provides strong support for the capital's green and low-carbon energy transformation.

Implementing the Concept of Green Development

These photovoltaic projects in various fields, including infrastructure and public institutions, have a broad scope and attract significant social attention due to their strong demonstration effect. They efficiently utilize urban buildings, infrastructure, and other resources to reduce electricity costs, vividly demonstrating the priority development of renewable energy. This is conducive to encouraging more enterprises and institutions to accelerate their green and low-carbon transformation.
