China News Agency, Yinchuan, December 4th (Reporter Yu Jing) The reporter learned from the Development and Reform Commission of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region on the 4th that since the "West-to-East Electricity Transmission" was launched in 2011, Ningxia has accumulated to North China, East China, Central China and other regions have reached 600.2 billion kWh, exceeding the 600 billion kWh mark.
According to estimates, 600 billion kWh of electricity is equivalent to converting nearly 240 million tons of standard coal on site, reducing emissions of 598.2 million tons of carbon dioxide, 163.2 million tons of carbon dust, and 9 million tons of nitrogen oxides. The environmental and social benefits are very significant.
Ningxia is an important base for west-to-east power transmission, and it is also the first new energy comprehensive demonstration area determined by the state.
In recent years, Ningxia has used the "inter-provincial mutual aid" method to bundle Ningxia's "wind and fire" through UHV projects for delivery. The scale of new energy power delivery has increased year by year, realizing the transformation from "fire" power to "green" power transmission. The transformation of electricity has sent Ningxia's clean energy to the whole country. While supporting the use of electricity in North China and East China, it has promoted the transformation of Ningxia's energy advantages into economic advantages, and has also contributed Ningxia's wisdom to promoting the construction of a new energy system and promoting the high-quality development of national energy. and Ningxia programs.
For more than ten years, Ningxia has played an active role in ensuring the power demand in North China and East China, creating various economic benefits of over 130 billion yuan for Ningxia, increasing more than 50,000 jobs, and accelerating the transition from resource advantages to economic advantages in Ningxia. change.
In addition, Ningxia continues to give full play to the advantages of "small provinces, strong power grids, and large transmission ends". Relying on the unified national power market, the scope of external power transmission has expanded from the initial Shandong and Zhejiang to Shanghai, Chongqing, Hubei and other dozen provinces. The power consumption has achieved step-by-step growth of tens of billions for six consecutive years.
