Liaoning plans US$87b clean energy overhaul
    2022-09-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A NORTHEASTERN province that was once one of China’s major coal and industrial hubs has launched a 600 billion yuan (US$87 billion) plan to expand clean energy production.

Liaoning Province is planning six different energy bases of 10 gigawatts each, according to a report from CCTV. That’s enough combined generation to power all of Thailand.

The different bases will include nuclear, offshore wind, pumped hydro energy storage, “smart energy” and two renewable energy installations, according to the report.

Smart energy involves virtual power plant networks that can monitor and optimize energy generation. No timetable was given on the project’s completion.

Liaoning was once one of China’s top industrial hubs and coal producing regions, helping the country modernize the economy. But as mines became depleted, coal production and the jobs that came with it moved west. In recent years, utilities have taken advantage of the province’s windswept mountains to install power-producing turbines.

The Haizhou coal mine in Fuxin is typical of the province’s planned transition. Once the largest open-pit coal resource in Asia, the government is now researching how to convert it into an energy storage station to better harness the intermittent renewable generation in the region. (SD-Agencies)
