[能源经济学研讨会 ]清华大学环境学院鲁玺副教授学术演讲



  In the 21st Conference of the Parties held in Paris in December 2015, China pledged to peak its carbon emissions and increase non-fossil energy to 20% by 2030 or earlier. Expanding renewable capacity, especially wind power, is a central strategy to achieve these climate goals. Despite greater capacity for wind installation in China compared to the US, less wind electricity is generated in China. The talk will focus on tackling such a complicated issue. It will begin with a brief review on the policy and history for development of wind power in China and then address particularly its economically feasible potential of wind power. In this context, a new approach is proposed to quantify the relative importance of the key factors accounting for the unsatisfactory performance of Chinese wind farms. Different from qualitative studies, our analysis indicates that the difference in wind resources explains only a small fraction of the current US-China difference in wind power output; the curtailment of wind power, differences in turbine quality and delayed connection to the grid are identified as the three primary factors. Improvements in both technology choices and the policy environment are critical in addressing these challenges. Countermeasures will be discussed in the case studies at the end.
