June 23,2017--Qinghai is to be the country’s renewable energy pilot province, stressed experts at Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal Power Development and Utilization Forum held in Xining, capital city of Northwest China’s Qinghai province on Wednesday.
With long sunshine time and strong sunlit radiation, Qinghai province enjoys an annual total solar radiation volume of 5,560 to 7,400 megajoules per square meter, ranking second after Tibet.
Endowed with rich solar, wind and water resources, this province can develop its solar power industry well with the support of the country’s huge capacity to build solar power plants, said Yi Yuechun, deputy head of China Renewable Energy Engineering Institute.
Xu Honghua, researcher of Institute of Electrical Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, stressed that with the best comprehensive conditions, this province should roll out measures as soon as possible to promote its photovoltaic power generation.
With the development of solar industry in this province, the utilization of wind-generated electricity here will be largely enhanced, according to Wang Weisheng, director of New Energy Research Center, China Electric Power Research Institute.
This pilot-to-be province is expected to push forward rapid and sustainable development of local economy and society, significantly, becoming a real boon to global green economy.
