Make every effort to prepare for the peak winter, ensure energy supply, and protect the warmth of thousands of homes

With the impact of a new round of rain, snow and cold waves, the temperature in many places has hit a new low since the beginning of winter, and the demand for power supply and heating continues to rise.

At present, we are in a critical period of peak winter, and all localities have taken multiple measures to improve energy security capabilities, make every effort to promote stable energy production and supply, and provide a solid guarantee for the smooth operation of the economy and society and the warm winter of the masses.

Energy supply is "full fire"

In China's first 200 million tons of coal production base - Shendong mining area in Ordos, the shearer is running at high speed; In the main stream of the Yangtze River, six cascade hydropower stations in Wudongde, Baihetan, Xiluodu, Xiangjiaba, Three Gorges and Gezhouba are making every effort to ensure a stable power supply during the cold wave. In Shuozhou, Shanxi Province, intelligent mining of open-pit mines ensures efficient production... Energy production continues to accelerate, and energy supply is "full firepower".

In the face of the new situation of energy and power supply, all localities are actively preparing for the peak winter, increasing efforts to ensure supply, and playing a good "combination punch" of energy supply. As of December 12, China Energy Group's annual power generation reached 17.1 trillion kWh, up 16.6% year-on-year, and heat supply reached 2 million GJ, up 4.8% year-on-year.

At the same time, all localities and departments have refined preventive measures to respond to all kinds of sudden dangers and disasters in a timely manner to ensure that the people are safe and warm in winter. As of 17 o'clock on the 7th, all 12 substations in Shanxi affected by the rain, snow and freezing disaster have been restored. In order to do a good job in fighting rain, snow and ice and ensuring power supply, in the past few days, the State Grid has arranged a total of 5,5 people, 547 power generation vehicles, and 2862,<> generators to urgently support the affected areas and contract the power repair work in key areas.

As the strong cold wave continues to move southward, the electricity demand of the six cascade power stations in the main stream of the Yangtze River has increased significantly. The Yangtze River Power of the Three Gorges Corporation ensures a safe and stable supply of energy, with a maximum daily power generation of more than 7 million kilowatt hours and a peak output of more than 4300 million kilowatts, both of which hit a record high in the same period in history.

Smooth and efficient energy transportation

Walking into Huanghua Port in Cangzhou, Hebei Province, a large amount of coal is being quickly unloaded and loaded at the port, presenting a busy scene. It is reported that as of December 12, the annual coal water supply in Huanghua Port has completed 13.9 million tons 20024 days earlier than last year, breaking through the 4 million ton mark for four consecutive years.

Affected by the strong cold air, the current coal consumption for power generation and heating has increased, and the demand for coal transportation has risen. Since the beginning of winter, all regions and departments have made overall arrangements for transportation capacity, and strengthened the coordination, efficiency and smoothness of coal railway, highway and waterway transportation.

"After entering the winter, the railway department will give full play to the role of Daqin, Tangbao, Wari, Haoji, Lanxin Railway and other main freight channels, and improve the capacity of northern coal transportation to the south, west coal to the east, and Xinjiang coal export." According to the person in charge of the freight department of China Railway Group, in November, the national railway loaded 11,8 cars of coal per day, a year-on-year increase of 5.2%. As of the end of November, the inventory of 3 direct power supply plants on the whole road was 11.371 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 8627.15%, and the number of consumable days was more than 2 days, maintaining a high level.

From November 11 to December 1, the Hohhot Railway Bureau transported a total of 12.11 million tons of coal. Coal was transported from the west to the east, and the Daqin Railway transported more than 1537.05 million tons of coal per day, a year-on-year increase of 122.13%. Xinjiang coal is transported, and the Xinjiang railway department runs 3 special coal trains to Xinjiang every day, an increase of 60 trains over the previous period.

"We will pay close attention to the coal storage and consumption of power generation and heating enterprises, and do a good job in organizing the supply and transportation of peak winter." The person in charge said.

Steady progress has been made in energy security

According to data from the National Energy Administration, in November, the electricity consumption of the whole society was 11 billion kilowatt hours, a year-on-year increase of 7630.11%. As of December 6, this winter's national power load has twice hit a record high in peak winter, and it is expected to break the record in the future, and the electricity load may increase by more than 12 million kilowatts compared with the same period last year, showing a significant increase.

At present, in order to ensure the safety and stability of the power system, the power industry has fully tapped the support potential of load-side regulation, accelerated the construction of power grid projects, and strengthened the overall allocation of power across regions.

Recently, the National Disaster Prevention, Mitigation and Relief Committee issued a notice to local disaster reduction committees and relevant departments, emphasizing that it is necessary to ensure safe supply, strengthen energy security, do a good job in energy security and increase production and supply, improve the emergency dispatch mechanism of coal, natural gas, electricity, refined oil and other energy complementary and mutual protection, closely monitor the supply of electricity, coal, natural gas and other areas seriously affected by the cold wave, and carry out cross-provincial energy dispatch in a timely manner to ensure that the national energy supply and demand are stable and orderly.

The relevant person in charge of the Electric Power Department of the National Energy Administration said that it will continue to pay attention to the supply and demand of electricity across the country, strengthen the early warning and analysis of supply and demand, and guide the supply and security work in areas with tight power supply and tight "one province and one policy". At the same time, urge power grid enterprises to give full play to the overall allocation function of the power grid, and dig deep into the potential of mutual assistance in the northwest and south regions.
