China Powering Global Offshore Wind Energy Growth (Int'l Report)
Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2020-08-07
According a new industry report from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the world's offshore wind farm capacity could grow to 234GW by 2030 powered by a clean energy surge led by China where 2.4 GW of offshore wind power capacity came on stream in 2019.

The report also noted 75 pct of the world's offshore wind farms are in European waters but by the end of the decade China is expected to host more than a fifth of the world's offshore wind turbines, equating to 52GW.

The report notes the offshore wind industry could create 900,000 jobs globally over the next decade and that every 1GW of offshore wind helped to avoid 3.5 million tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere .

EDF, China Energy Investments Partner on Offshore Wind (Int'l.)
China Energy Investment Corporation
Date: 2020-03-16
Beijing-based China Energy Investment Corporation (China Energy) is reporting it will jointly develop a 502 MW offshore wind project in east China's Jiangsu province with French energy giant EDF Group.

The project, which is expected to come in at 7.9 billion yuan ($1.13 billion), will generate 1,390 million kWh of electricity per year, which is equivalent to 441,900 tons of standard coal and will satisfy the annual electricity demand of almost 2 million people when commissioned in early 2021. The offshore wind power plant will be jointly financed, built and operated by China Energy with 62.5 pct and EDF Group holding the balance.

Beijing Reportedly Ending Renewable Energy Support (Int'l Report)
China Renewable Energy
Date: 2020-01-10
Shanghai Securities News is reporting Beijing is considering scaling back or even abolishing subsidies to the offshore wind power sector in 2022. Beijing would, however, still encourage regional-level governments to subsidize construction of local offshore wind farms. In 2019, the central government cancelled subsidies for the solar power industry.

The cut backs are being viewed as a sign of the government's intention to completely eliminate financial support to renewable energy firms as their technology becomes more commercially competitive. (Source: Shanghai Securities News, CX Tech, 9 Jan., 2020)

HZ Windpower Touts New Giant Offshore Wind Turbine (Int'l. Report)
HZ Windpower,
Date: 2019-11-08
In China, the science and technology bureau of southwest China's Chongqing Municipality is reporting the development of a 10-MW offshore wind turbine with a 210-meter rotor diameter. The new H210-10MW turbine could generate about 40 million kWh of electricity per year, according to the release.

The new wind turbine, which was developed by CSIC Haizhuang Wind Power (HZ Windpower) a subsidiary of the Beijing-based state-owned China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, will be installed at wind farms in the coastal provinces of Fujian and Guangdong.

HZ Wind was established in 2004 and has $1.1 billion in assets and more than 1,000 employees globally. The company has three business segments includes wind farm investment, turbine supply and O&M engineering service globally. The company owns an operating wind farm in Iowa (US), HZ Wind USA, Inc. based in Iowa, and an R&D center in Denmark, according to its website.

China to Exceed 210 GW Wind Power Target by 2020 (Int'l Report)
China Wind,China National Energy Administration
Date: 2018-08-03
In Beijing, China's National Energy Administration (NEA) previously announced switch from a Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme to a competitive auction mechanism aims to help the country surpass its targeted installation of more than 20 GW per year on average over the next 10 years.

While certain onshore and offshore projects will still be eligible for the FiT, most projects starting in 2019 will need to win at auction. This is all part of the NEA's effort to ensure that wind energy reaches grid parity by 2020.

China is expected to surpass its national cumulative wind power target of 210 GW and will install on average over 20 GW worth of new wind capacity each year. (Source: China National Energy Administration , CleanTechnica, 31 July, 2018) Contact: China National Energy Administration,

Chinese Wind Power Subsidies to End Within 5 years (Int'l)
New and Renewable Energy Bureau at the National Energy Bureau
Date: 2017-10-18
In Beijing, the New and Renewable Energy Bureau at the National Energy Bureau, is reporting the Chinese wind power industry will be independent from government subsidies in three to five years. The government believes wind power could be self-sufficient ahead of photovoltaic by 2020 or 2022.

Although the country's total wind power reached 154 million KW as of June 2017, nearly triple the figure from 2012, the usage rate is low and Many wind turbines are halted and idle due local power grid failures. Also, the price of wind and photovoltaic energy are still too high and still rely on subsidies to develop.
