On September 22, 2020, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced at the general debate of the 75th United Nations General Assembly: “China will scale up its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions by adopting more vigorous policies and measures. We aim to have CO2 emissions peak before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060.” In March 2021, President Xi Jinping pointed out at the ninth meeting of the Central Finance and Economics Commission, “We must focus on improving utilization efficiency, take alternative actions with renewable energy, deepen power system reform, and build a new-type power system with new energy as the main body”. Building a new-type power system and promoting the decarbonization of the power sector is the only way to promote clean and low-carbon transformation of energy and achieve the goal of “dual-carbon”.
In order to fully implement the relevant deployment of the Party Central Committee and the State Council on the “dual-carbon” work and the spirit of President Xi Jinping’s important speech at the Central Talent Work Conference, the Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering, in accordance with the deployment of the China Association for Science and Technology, began in December 2021 to organize experts to compile the “dual-carbon” series books, assist in the education and training of “dual-carbon” related professional teachers in colleges and universities, support the construction of “dual-carbon” related majors and personnel training, serve the overall situation of the “dual-carbon” work of the party and the country, promote high-quality economic and social development, and contribute to the realization of the “dual-carbon” goal as scheduled. The main readers of this book include, but are not limited to: teachers and students of “dual-carbon” related majors in colleges and universities, directors of carbon neutrality future technology colleges and exemplary energy colleges, etc.
The book is divided into 8 chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the era background and strategic significance of the “dual-carbon” goal, the core connotation and basic characteristics of the new-type power system, as well as changes compared with the traditional power system, and analyzes the technical structure of “source, grid, load, storage, and common key supports”. Chapter 2 introduces the evolution path and construction measures of the new-type power system, and clarifies the low-carbon transformation path of the power system. Chapter 3 introduces clean and low-carbon energy production technologies in the new-type power system. Chapter 4 introduces grid technologies in the new-type power systems. Chapter 5 introduces the efficient energy utilization technologies on the load side in the new-type power system. Chapter 6 focuses on efficient energy storage in the new-type power system. Chapter 7 introduces the application of common key supporting technologies such as new electrical materials, devices, power grid digitization, high-performance simulation calculation and solution, power Beidou, and power network carbon flow analysis in the new-type power system. Chapter 8 introduces the market mechanism suitable for the new-type power system.
The editor-in-chief of this book is Shu Yinbiao, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, secretary of the Party Group and chairman of China Huaneng Group Co., Ltd., chairman of the International Electrotechnical Commission, and chairman of the Chinese Society of Electrical Engineering.
