The State Council Information Office held a regular policy briefing on the afternoon of October 13 to introduce the supply of energy security this winter and the next spring and answer questions from reporters.
Zhao Chenxin, a member of the Party Leadership Group and Secretary-General of the National Development and Reform Commission, said at the briefing that the Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to energy supply guarantee work. The heating season in the north is coming soon. During the period from the end of September to the beginning of October, General Secretary Xi Jinping issued important instructions on energy supply guarantee, energy security, and construction of energy production, supply, storage and marketing systems. On October 8, Premier Li Keqiang presided over an executive meeting of the State Council, and made further arrangements for the supply of power and coal in this winter and spring, emphasizing the need to ensure the basic lives of the people and the smooth operation of the economy. Vice Premier Han Zheng also convened several meetings to conduct special studies and put forward clear requirements for related work.
Zhao Chenxin stated that, in accordance with the deployment of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, the National Development and Reform Commission has closely cooperated with relevant parties for a period of time, acted quickly, and adopted a series of effective and effective measures.
First, improve and strengthen the inter-departmental coordination mechanism. In accordance with the requirements of the executive meeting of the State Council, combined with the situation and work needs, the National Development and Reform Commission has further improved the inter-departmental coordination mechanism for coal, electricity, oil and gas transportation guarantees to form the largest joint force, coordinate and supervise and guide the national coal, electricity, oil and gas transportation guarantee work, and all departments will quickly sort out the work together. The current problems should be resolved in a targeted and timely manner.
Second, we will make every effort to increase coal production and supply. During the National Day, coal mines have been maintaining normal production under the premise of ensuring safety, and relevant departments have jointly promoted coal mines with the potential to increase production to release production capacity as soon as possible. Accelerate the commissioning of approved and basically completed open-pit coal mines to reach production capacity, and promote the rectification of coal mines that have stopped production for rectification in accordance with laws and regulations, and resume production as soon as possible. Moreover, priority is given to ensuring coal transportation to ensure that the produced coal can be transported to the place where it is needed in time, and it is also coordinating to increase the medium and long-term coal contracts of power and heating enterprises.
Third, rationally channel the cost of coal-fired power generation. Urge all localities to effectively organize power market-oriented transactions, and require that the normal fluctuations of market prices within a reasonable range should not be improperly interfered. In 2019, the National Development and Reform Commission issued relevant policy documents to deepen the reform of the on-grid electricity price formation mechanism for coal-fired power generation. According to the requirements of the documents, the price of market-oriented electricity can fluctuate by 10% and not more than 15% on the basis of the benchmark electricity price. .
” However, there were indeed some unreasonable restrictions in some places in the past, which allowed to float down, but did not want to float up. Now we must be firmNever stop this unreasonable intervention. “Zhao Chenxin said that for a period of time, the National Development and Reform Commission has been continuing to study deepening reforms to improve the market-oriented formation mechanism of coal power prices. After research, relevant documents have been issued yesterday, and all coal-fired power generation is being promoted to enter the electricity market in an orderly manner. , Agriculture, public welfare undertakings under the situation that electricity prices are basically stable, expand the range of fluctuations in market transaction electricity prices, and do a good job of classified adjustments.
Fourth, promote coal power All units should be delivered. Coordinating power grid companies and power generation companies, strengthening the protection of electric coal, quickly repairing unit failures, fully starting temporary shutdown generators, and improving supply guarantee capabilities. As of October 9, Northeast and North China regions in August and September The capacity of coal power units that were temporarily out of service has dropped by 13.47 million kilowatts and 12.2 million kilowatts, respectively. In other words, 13.47 million kilowatts and 12.2 million kilowatts have been activated in Northeast and North China, respectively, increasing the load support capacity. .
Fifth, resolutely curb the “two highs” project blindly and unreasonably using energy. Guide relevant regions to make overall plans for energy supply, and make overall plans for industrial chain and supply chain security, etc. Related factors, the orderly implementation of power rationing for the “two highs” projects, and resolutely curb the blind development of the “two highs” projects. To curb the blind development of the “two highs” projects is the proper meaning of achieving high-quality development. “Limiting blind development” two Our attitude towards the unreasonable use of electricity in high-level projects is clear and resolute. In the next step, we ask all localities to promptly publish the list of the “two highs” projects that do not meet the requirements, and resolutely limit the illegal and disorderly use of energy for these projects. ”
Sixth, guide local governments to improve the level of orderly electricity use management. Adjust and improve orderly electricity use plans in a timely manner, and ensure that the contractual agreement and users are informed to ensure that the plan is available. Execution, operation, and scientific implementation.
“Through these six related tasks, we have taken a series of measures. It should be said that phased results have been achieved so far. “Zhao Chenxin said.
