Renewable energy is a global energy transition core content

Polaris solar PV net news: recently, national renewable energy Center for the 2014 international renewable energy development report. Money enclosed by the end of 2013 the overall development of the global renewable energy industry, summarized in 35 countries and regions worldwide renewable energy strategic objectives, policy measures and market trends. Start in 2012, the report has been published 3 years in a row.

“Renewable energy has become a hot area of global energy investment. In 2013, any new power generation installed capacity in the world, 56% from renewable energy generation. Renewable energy such as wind power and solar power generation is the fastest growing power. “National renewable energy Center Vice Director of Hu Gao said at the launch of the report,” development of renewable energy on a global scale has scale, is a major strategic measure to address global climate change, is the core of the global energy transition and fundamental direction. ”

From advanced countries to developed and developing countries, “two-wheeled”

Hu Gao said, from report view, global can renewable energy development rendering some significantly situation: can renewable energy became energy investment focus field; global main economic body are height attention can renewable energy of development; can renewable energy only in power field share high, in Terminal energy consumption in the by accounted for proportions also is unlikely to; global can renewable energy still in fast development stage; increasingly more of economic body proposed Grand of COSCO period can renewable energy development target,.

The report shows that renewable energy growth momentum slowing in Europe, policy adjustment and speed up the innovation process. Renewable energies have been an important means to address climate change in 2030, the EU climate and energy policy frameworks aims, will share of renewable energy in energy consumption ratio increased to 27%. Despite the financial crisis in 2013 having financial difficulties, coupled with subsidies increased demand pressures, some decline in State support for renewable energy in Europe, but it is an irreversible trend of the development of renewable energy. Germany set out to amend the law from “fixed price” to “fixed subsidy”, United Kingdom also began implementation of electricity market reform, to introduce new energy power generation contracts.

The pace of emerging and developing countries is growing faster and becomes an important driver for renewable energy development. China’s wind, solar, biomass and other renewable energy is developing rapidly. India is the second largest wind power development after mainland China in Asia. In 2013, the India wind power installed capacity 2.08 million-kilowatt, cumulative installed capacity has reached 21.13 million-kilowatt, ranked fifth in the world; the national solar energy plan to yield results in 2013, India added PV power 1.01 million-kilowatt, totaled 2.82 million-kilowatt.

The report said renewable energy began to develop on a more global scale. Middle East, North Africa, South America, Southeast Asia, Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia in the development of renewable energy. Even Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, and Bahrain, and Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich countries are vigorously developing renewable energy 2020 targets.

Wind solar in the local region into alternative power trend is clearly

The end of 2013, global renewable energy generation capacity totaled 1.56 billion kW, 8.5% over in 2012. Hydro-added 40 million-kilowatt, 4%, total installed capacity reaching 1 billion-kilowatt; wind power added 35 million-kilowatt, an increase of 12%, with a total generation capacity of 318 million kW; PV count about 39 million-kilowatt, an increase of 39%, the cumulative capacity of 139 million kW. By the end of 2013, renewable energy sources generate all the world’s 22.1% of electricity, including hydroelectric generating capacity accounted for 16.4% of the world’s electricity.

Judging from the different industries, global renewable energy development also varies. Hu Gao said, wind power continues to scale development began in some regions an alternative role. In 2013, global cumulative installed capacity of wind power reached 318 million kilowatts, which then installed 35.47 million-kilowatt, down 21.5%, which was mainly influenced by the United States the impact of policy change.

Wind power development in Europe continues to be the most stable areas, not only in capacity growth and scale, but also play a role in wind power in the electricity system. Wind power generating capacity accounted for 8% of the total electricity consumption in Europe, up 1% from 7% again in 2012. Wind power in Denmark, and Portugal, and Spain, and Germany the proportion of electricity generation, 22.4%, 33.2% and 8.9%, respectively. Wind power in these countries has played an important role in alternative power.

2013 global PV industry achieved a historic breakthrough, additional capacity of about 39 million-kilowatt, more than wind power for the first time, an increase of 39%, the cumulative capacity of 139 million kW. Which, in the EU countries, photovoltaic energy output accounted for 3% of the total electricity consumption in the EU, increasing by 0.5% over a year ago. Among them, Italy PV power station to 7.8% of total national electricity consumption, an increase of 2.2%; Germany accounted for 5%.

Photovoltaic power generation in Asia to achieve a breakthrough, as the world’s largest photovoltaic market. Among them, China market new 11.3 million-kilowatt; Japan under the influence of Fukushima, new market capacity reached 6.9 million-kilowatt, an increase of 306%.

By the end of 2013, biomass power generation installed capacity in the world 88 million-kilowatt in 2012, representing a growth of 6%, generating about 405 billion-kilowatt kWh, accounting for about 1.4% of electricity. Among them, the Europe of 34.5 million-kilowatt, when the output of 136 billion-kilowatt. Germany added 500,000-kilowatt new biomass power plant in 2013, total installed 8 million-kilowatt; when the biomass power generation 48 billion-kilowatt, representing Germany’s electricity 8%.
