Price Reform Amidst Crisis– China Clean Energy Syndicate

China has taken a meaningful step forward in electricity market reform, as the top economy planner NDRC unleashed a critical power pricing policy last week. The regulator inked the policy swiftly after the State Council reached conclusions on addressing the looming energy supply shortage (see last China Clean Energy Syndicate Oct 11). The change in retail power pricing mechanism is a highlight of the new policy. Previously the industry has been debating on the issues regarding retail catalogue pricing for years, but progress has been limited. The change might kick off China’s next reformative moves on the electricity market.

The reform is also significant for renewable, clean energy investment and energy storage market development.

Some other critical updates of the Chinese clean energy market last week:

  • Net-Zero Investment: President Xi last week announced China’s big moves in biodiversity, where mega renewable complex investment is remarked as part of the solution. The top authority’s statement is a clear indication of the investment trend in China’s renewable market.
  • Renewables: The upcoming CWP will see major R&D development from the Chinese wind OEMs. Already CRRC Yongji released the 18MW wind turbine generator while Dongfang Electric Wind Power announced that it is going to reveal this 13 MW turbine prototype in the CWP.
  • Hydrogen: LONGi made another leap in hydrogen equipment development by launching its first alkaline water electrolyzer product.

Price Reform Amidst Crisis– China Clean Energy Syndicate

New Rules! Significant Changes Amidst Energy-Crisis — China Clean Energy Syndicate

State Council’s policy decision addressing China’s current energy crisis–made in last week’s council meeting–demands a lot of attention. The decision has significant implications on China’s energy policies (at least for electricity) in the next years to come. Some of the previous priorities–i.e. electricity price reduction, coal phase-out–might see some changes in the 14th FYP due to the looming energy shortage scenario.

The impacts of the crisis and the policy decision will be immense to many sectors: coal, renewable, hydrogen, storage…We will provide our take on the future in this week’s EI Analytical.

Some other critical updates of the Chinese clean energy market last week:

  • Net-Zero: Digitalization for Renewable is Trending in Investment, as Envision winning a 12GW order tells us.
  • Renewables: The World’s First Aquaculture+ Floating Offshore Wind Demonstration Enters into Test Stage
  • Hydrogen: China Achieves Major Breakthrough of Fuel Cell Metal Bipolar Plates–the new innovation is free from precious metal and a major milestone for cutting fuel cell costs

New Rules! Significant Changes Amidst Energy-Crisis — China Clean Energy Syndicate

Long-waited Price Raise amidst Power Crunch — China Clean Energy Syndicate

The power crunch in China begins to ripple in different industries and in the global markets. A relatively positive development is that the local government begins to allow increases in electricity price (generation-side) for the first time after China changed its benchmark electricity pricing to benchmark plus fluctuation pricing.

Our picks of the critical updates of the Chinese clean energy market last week:

  • Net-Zero: Shanghai Futures Exchange is developing futures contracts for hydrogen, battery colbat, and ammonia.
  • Renewables: Shanghai Electric released a flagship 11MW direct-drive turbine of full IP right. Woodmac’s 2021H1 report suggests a shifting landscape of the Chinese turbine market, where orders hit a record high.
  • Hydrogen: CNPC is soon to launch China’s first hydrogen and natural gas blending facility. CSSC Perui (718th Institute) has made some sucess in exporting its PEM electrolyzer. Meanwhile, Doosan Fuel Cell shipped four hydrogen fuel cells to China in what was marked as South Korea’s first export of the product.
  • Electricity: Local governments finally reset the electricity ceiling prices for the first time in the recent power storage, after months of soaring coal prices that hit power producers.

Long-waited Price Raise amidst Power Crunch — China Clean Energy Syndicate

“Net-Zero Great Leap Forward” the Culprit for the Worst Power Shortage? — China Clean Energy Syndicate

President Xi’s announcement to halt coal-fired investment overseas might have occupied the headline last week. However, a bigger story is the severe power crunch that occurred again. While the nation eyes on multiplying everything “clean” in the next decade, establishing an effective market mechanism for clean investment remains a critical challenge.

Our picks of the critical updates last week:

  • Net-Zero: China announced to ban new coal-fired power investments overseas.
  • Renewables: An industry report estimates that China would add 400 GW of large-scale centralized wind and photovoltaic complexes.
  • Hydrogen: CNPC pledged to develop blue hydrogen and CCUS projects covering seven regions in the country. China’s first liquid hydrogen system and first pink hydrogen power-to-gas project are progressing as planned.

Electrolysis, NaCI, Heavy-Duty FCVs the Investment Directions — China Clean Energy Syndicate

Chinese policymakers have unleashed several critical net-zero energy and industry policies in recent months (and more are expected to be announced by the end of 2021). The policy changes, against the backdrop of China’s “Dual Carbon” revolution, has triggered various new investment hypes.

Last week’s news updates highlighted some of these “net-zero” investment directions.

  • Net-Zero: Electricity pricing reforms would add trillions of new investments in Energy Storage, Wind, Solar, and Electrolytic Aluminum, NDRC officials stated. The commission is researching on new “green electricity pricing.”
  • Renewables: Haizhuang Wind Power (of CSSC) Launches Asia’s Second 10MW Offshore Wind Turbine Prototype
  • Hydrogen: Commercial heavy-duty FCVs, electrolysis equipment are the two major investment directions in China’s hydrogen market, as industry leaders come to a similar point of view.
  • Energy Storage & Battery: NaCI battery attracts investment from the major lithium-ion players.
