China News Service, August 27. According to the website of the National Development and Reform Commission, the National Development and Reform Commission recently issued a notice on improving the step-by-step electricity price policy for the electrolytic aluminum industry.

The "Notice" pointed out that the electrolytic aluminum industry's tiered electricity price is classified according to the comprehensive AC power consumption of the molten aluminum, and the classification standard is 13,650 kWh per ton.

If it is not higher than the classification standard, the electricity consumption of liquid aluminum production will not increase; if it is higher than the classification standard, for every more than 20 kilowatt-hours, the electricity consumption of liquid aluminum production will increase by 0.01 yuan per kilowatt-hour. 20 kWh calculation.

The "Notice" will be implemented from January 1, 2022.

  The "Notice" also pointed out that the classification standards should be steadily adjusted.

Starting from 2023, the grading standard will be adjusted to 13,450 kWh per ton of molten aluminum (excluding desulfurization power consumption); from 2025, the grading standard will be adjusted to 13,300 kWh per ton of molten aluminum. (Excluding desulfurization power consumption).

  Dynamically adjust the price increase standard based on the level of clean energy utilization.

Encourage electrolytic aluminum enterprises to improve the utilization of non-aqueous renewable energy such as wind power and photovoltaic power generation, and reduce fossil energy consumption.

The non-aqueous renewable energy consumed by electrolytic aluminum enterprises accounts for more than 15% of the total electricity consumption, and is not less than the incentive value of the non-hydropower consumption responsibility weight of the province (autonomous region, municipality) in the previous year, each increase in the proportion 1 percentage point, the tiered price increase standard is correspondingly reduced by 1%.

  In addition, the "Notice" requires that the introduction of preferential electricity price policies is strictly prohibited.

All localities must strictly implement the national electricity price policy, prohibit the implementation of preferential electricity prices for the electrolytic aluminum industry, and organize special transactions in the electrolytic aluminum enterprise power market. Those that have been implemented and organized should be cancelled immediately.

It is strictly forbidden to introduce preferential electricity price policies into the assessment and assessment of the responsibility of the provincial people's government for energy consumption dual control targets.
