Liu Qi, deputy director of the National Energy Administration, revealed on the 13th that at present, the national hydropower and wind power installed capacity have exceeded 230 million kilowatts and 47 million kilowatts respectively, ranking first in the world.
Liu Qi said at the "Licensing Ceremony of the National Hydropower and Wind Energy Research Center and the National Energy and Hydropower Engineering Technology R&D Center" here that in recent years, my country's hydropower and wind power have ushered in unprecedented development opportunities and achieved remarkable results. It has played an important role in increasing energy supply, ensuring energy security, promoting energy conservation and emission reduction, and responding to climate change.
But he also pointed out that with the rapid development of hydropower and wind power, as well as changes in the economic and social development environment, the problems faced by the development of hydropower and wind power have become more and more prominent, such as migration of hydropower construction, environmental protection issues, and complex geological and seismic conditions. The engineering and technical issues of high dam construction, technical standards and policies for wind power, etc., have become restrictive factors affecting the healthy development of hydropower and wind power.
Liu Qi said that in accordance with the new situation and requirements, it is not only necessary but also urgent to strengthen technical support and management system construction in the hydropower and wind power industries, and to strengthen policy research and technical research. To this end, the National Energy Administration relies on China Hydropower Engineering Consulting Group Corporation to set up the National Hydropower and Wind Energy Research Center and the National Energy and Hydropower Engineering Technology R&D Center as a national hydropower and wind energy development policy and technical support service agency.
It is understood that the main task of the National Hydropower and Wind Energy Research Center is to undertake development strategies, policy research, scientific and technological research and development, personnel training and international exchanges in the fields of hydropower and wind energy, and to provide policy and technical support services for hydropower and wind energy management; The main task of the Hydropower Engineering Technology R&D Center is to carry out major engineering technology research in the field of hydropower, and promote the integration of "production, learning, and research" and the progress of engineering technology. The establishment of the two centers is not only an important measure taken by the National Energy Administration to strengthen the management of the hydropower and wind power industries, but also an important part of the construction of the national energy industry innovation system.
China Hydropower Engineering Consulting Group Corporation is an important technical service unit in my country’s new energy and renewable energy industries. After long-term engineering practice, it has formed a relatively complete hydropower and wind power technology research and development, standard formulation and industry service system, with planning and surveying , Design technical strength of various hydropower stations and wind farms.
