China’s Offshore Wind Industry Enters Large-Scale Development
China’s offshore wind energy industry is moving to the fast lane. In November 2012, Longyuan Wind Power completed 150 MW in an offshore wind demonstration project in Rudong, Jiangsu Province. The project is China’s largest offshore wind farm to realize grid integration.
“Wind power has become the third-largest electric power in China,” says Liu Qi, deputy director general of the National Energy Administration. “There is no electric power to substitute the position of wind power as No. 3, following thermal power and hydropower.”
The State Council released in October 2012 a white paper, “China’s Energy Policy,” which clearly indicates that: “Wind power is the non-hydro renewable energy with the biggest possibility of large-scale development and market utilization at the moment.”
To learn more about China’s offshore wind energy industry, considering attending “OFFSHORE WIND CHINA 2013,” which will be held June 19-21, 2013, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center and Shangri-La’s Kerry Hotel, Pudong. The conference is organized by the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association, the National Renewable Energy Center, and Shanghai International Exhibition Co., Ltd.
