  【Technology supports carbon peak carbon neutrality】

  Recently, the first green power transaction in Guangxi was completed, with a transaction volume of 66 million kWh, which is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 58,000 tons.

The smooth development of this transaction marks that Guangxi has opened a new mode of green power consumption, and fully utilizes the role of the market to stimulate the potential of green power consumption on both sides of supply and demand. It is an important measure to achieve carbon peaking and carbon neutrality.

From January to April this year, Guangxi directly traded 63.215 billion kWh of electricity, of which users directly traded 58.958 billion kWh of electricity, a year-on-year increase of 4.05%.

  A total of 10 power generation companies participated in the green power transaction, including 9 wind power companies and 1 photovoltaic power generation company. The transaction targets covered the green power consumption demand in May. The average transaction price was 48.5 cents/kWh, of which the green certificate transaction price is 6.43 cents/kWh.

  According to reports, conventional power trading, green power trading, and renewable energy consumption trading complement each other, and green power trading is an independent trading variety established under the existing medium and long-term trading framework.

Green power is organized, arranged, executed, and settled in priority in electricity market transactions and grid dispatching operations, and through relevant policies and measures to mobilize the enthusiasm of electricity consumers to purchase green power.

  Under the background of the "dual carbon" goal, the National Development and Reform Commission launched a green power trading pilot in September last year to promote the construction of a new power system with new energy as the main body and a clean and low-carbon transformation. The market in Guangxi initially reached five pairs of trading intentions.

This year, Guangxi officially organized green power trading. In March, various power trading institutions in the southern region jointly compiled and issued the "Southern Regional Green Power Trading Rules (Trial)", and the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Department of Industry and Information Technology officially issued the "Guangxi Green Power in 2022". The Implementation Plan for Market-Based Transactions clarifies the specific implementation measures for green electricity transactions in the region, providing institutional guarantees for the smooth development of transactions.

  It is understood that the replacement of energy use rights with "green electricity", in addition to guaranteeing normal production and operation of the enterprise, China Southern Power Grid Guangxi Power Grid Company has calculated another account: the transaction volume is 66 million kwh, which is expected to reduce the standard of 23,000 tons. Coal combustion reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 58,000 tons.

At the same time, in the international market, products with "green" attributes are more competitive.

For export enterprises, obtaining green power transaction certificates is equivalent to adding a green certification to the products.

  China Resources Guangxi Electricity Sales Company is the first transaction party of this transaction.

The company purchased 5 million kWh of green electricity in May for national high-quality users such as China Resources Yibao Beverage (Nanning) Co., Ltd. and Guangxi Yili Frozen Food Co., Ltd., which effectively increased the proportion of corporate green electricity consumption and achieved economic, social and environmental benefits. highly unified.

Shi Lin, the general manager of the company, believes that in the long run, purchasing green power will become an important measure for the clean and low-carbon transformation of enterprises, which will further empower product sales.
