The Chinese government’s issuing of four documents related to energy reform has boosted the nation’s initiative for cleaner power saving grid. These documents that originated from different ministries provided guidelines for much needed improvements in the operations of the world’s biggest utility. Upgrades that were underlined in the documents included extensive topics with reference to the power sector, renewable energy, resolving of issues in power generation and others.
China State Council has provided codes of practice in the first document for restructuring the power sector. There is emphasis on environmental protection, use of marketing techniques, by making the sector competitive rather than letting the earlier monopoly of control by a single company continue. Earlier the power grid was operated by a single company and resulted in lethargic operations that were opposed to reform or change.
In the guideline documents there is stress on demand side management (DSM) to improve energy efficiency through use of renewable energy. The demand side management is highlighted as the most economical and efficient method for remodeling and bettering the productivity of electricity power generation in China.
The documents clearly describe the DSM support and the second document concentrates on renewable energy integration into the power resource. The details of sources for renewable energy are clearly documented. The final two documents were delivered by National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and deals with pilot projects and revenue caps in cities such as Foshan, Beiking, Suzhou, and Tangshan. Other areas observed in the documents are Inner Mongolia, Shenzhen, and other provinces. Revenue cap regulation has been used in US and Europe and is a vital part of the plan for enhancing China’s power grid to decrease toxic emissions and increasing efficiency.
