China’s Rural Hydropower Installed Capacity Will Increase 15 GW

The meeting of National Rural Hydropower and 12th Five Year Hydropower New Rural Electrification County Construction on 7th May announced that rural hydropower works during the planning period will stick to the theme of scientific development and mainstream economic development.

Water control and power operation should be combined, and development and protection unified. New constructions and improvements are planned, which should pay equal attention to construction and management. The new rural electrification of counties should be carried out actively, considering ecological aspects during construction.

The 5 year effort is expected to increase the installed capacity by 1.4 GW, thereby replacing other fuels, solving life fuel problems for 1.4 million households and 5.6 million peasants and protecting over 13 km2 of forest. The goal is to complete electrification in 300 counties with hydropower, basically solving the power problems in planned areas with new increased installed capacity of 5 GW. Two thousand old rural hydropower stations with 4 GW of installed capacity should be renewed to improve energy efficiency and modernize on all levels. It is aimed to increase the installed capacity by 15 GW during the 12th five year period, to achieve a total installed capacity of 74 GW and contribute greatly to energy structure and gird improvement, the development of a low-carbon economy and livelihoods.
