China Can Transmit Ultra-High Voltage Electricity To Europe

BEIJING, May 10, 2012 - SinoCast Daily Business Beat

Liu Zhenya, General Manager of State Grid Corporation of China, expressed on May 9 that China's ultra-high voltage long-distance power transmission technology has been gradually maturing. Currently, China is capable of transmitting electricity to Europe via ultra-high voltage wire lines in an economical way.

He added according to China's energy structure, Eastern China has no room for large-scale construction of thermal-power generating units at present. China needs to increase 120 million-140 million kilowatts of hydropower installed capacity,  60 million-70 million kilowatts of nuclear-power installed capacity and  50 million-120 million kilowatts of wind-power installed capacity in the following 10 years.

China needs to mainly enhance transnational grid connection projects during the period of 2011-2015, and one of key projects is China-Russia direct-current back-to-back project. China will accelerate construction of direct-current power transmission from Russia and Mongolia to Liaoning, Tianjin and Shandong during the period of 2016-2020 and 2020-2030, based upon power transmission progress from surrounding countries to China and in accordance with development needs of Northeast China and North China.
