The General Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the General Office of the State Council issued the Implementation Plan for the National Clean Energy Pilot Zone of Hainan.
It outlines the plan to build Hainan into a clean energy island and accelerate the construction of a safe, green, and efficient clean energy supply system.
The plan calls for the vigorous promotion of “cutting coal and reducing oil” and gradually accelerating the replacement of clean energy for coal-fired units.
By 2020, enterprise-owned coal-fired units will be phased out, and all small coal-fired boilers with 35 steam tons/hour or less will be eliminated within the cities and counties.
The large-scale application of renewable energy can be realized by combining new energy storage technologies such as smart grid, modern rural power grid construction, micro-grids, energy storage and cooling technologies.
