shanghai observer: technology innovation makes energy 'greener'
sep has integrated the overall requirements of "carbon emissions peak" and "carbon neutrality" proposed by the country into its own new strategy and 14th five-year plan.
sep's energy is getting "greener" and "greener"! the company, whose total installed capacity accounts for about one-fourth of that of shanghai, is not only a pillar enterprise for power supply in shanghai, but also the largest heat supplier in the city. the latest data showed that the company's holding installed capacity stood at nearly 17 gw by the end of 2020, rising about 5.98% year-on-year. in addition to the increase in total amount, sep is further optimizing its energy structure, with clean energy accounting for almost 50% of the total by the end of 2020, rising by nearly 4 percentage points year-on-year. it means that the energy supplied to shanghai is becoming greener and greener, and more and more environment-friendly. it is reported that the net coal consumption rate of sep is about 280 g/kwh, which is better than 307 g/kwh, the national standard of net coal consumption rate, and even better than the us standard of 379 g/kwh. in other words, for every kilowatt-hour of electricity generated, sep's co2 emissions are about 240 grams fewer than those of the us counterparts.
over the years, sep has been increasing the development of renewable energy and distributed energy projects continuously in shanghai, and extending its footprints of "green power" to the yangtze river delta and the yangtze river economic belt. in the yangtze river delta region, the company's holding installed capacity of renewable energy reached 1.3 gw. in the yangtze river economic belt, the company is stepping up the layout of integrated smart energy, distributed, micro-grid, hydrogen energy, energy storage and other demonstration projects in the fields of transportation, construction, industry, environmental protection, etc., so as to assist the yangtze river delta and the yangtze river economic belt in the green and smart transformation of energy production and consumption.
sep party secretary and chairman hu jiandong said that the company has incorporated the overall requirements of "carbon emissions peak" and "carbon neutrality" proposed by the country into its own new strategy and 14th five-year plan. in the future development, the company will be "based on the yangtze river delta, oriented to the yangtze river economic belt, radiate the whole country and look at the world" in terms of strategic layout, focus on promoting clean transformation development on the supply side and clean energy replacement on the demand side, drive the industrial upgrading and power the construction of smart cities and beautiful villages. in the meanwhile, it will continue to increase innovation, strengthen the development and construction of hydrogen energy, energy storage and electric energy and hydrogen energy replacement projects, promote the integrated development of smart energy with construction, transportation, industry, beautiful villages and other fields, accelerate the research, application and service of energy digitization and energy smartness, actively blend into the construction of smart cities, and empower the high-quality development of social economy.
