Hainan will vigorously develop biomass and renewable energy

According to the Hainan Economic News, the reporter learned yesterday from the Provincial Bureau of Industry and Information Technology that the State Council issued a "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" energy saving indicator for Hainan Province: By 2010, energy consumption per unit of GDP was 12% lower than in 2005. It is estimated that in order to complete the national energy-saving target, Hainan Province, the average annual energy consumption per unit of GDP during the "Eleventh Five-Year" period needs to be reduced by 2.5%. In the following two years, the annual average reduction rate of energy consumption per unit of production of our province needs to reach 4.5%. Therefore, it is very difficult for our province to complete the national energy conservation binding targets.

Energy consumption index is very difficult to drop

At present, the progress of the decline in the energy consumption index of the unit GDP of our province is very unsatisfactory, and the cumulative total of the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” only fell by 2.4% in the first two years. In the two years after the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan”, the annual average reduction rate of energy consumption per unit of GDP in our province needs to reach 4.5%, and it is very difficult to complete the national energy conservation binding targets. The reason is that Hainan’s energy consumption per unit of GDP in 2005 was too low, and the energy consumption per unit of GDP in Hainan will show an upward trend in the late “11th Five-Year Plan” period.

Development of biomass and renewable energy

According to the Outline of the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" for Science and Technology Development in Hainan Province, the province has included the development of renewable energy as a priority development area, and the research and development of biomass and solar energy as the province's "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" technology development. One of the special projects is to carry out technological research on selection and breeding of new varieties of energy plants such as cassava and sugarcane, ethanol conversion, and ethanol production from sugar and alcohol, and research on technologies such as solar integrated buildings and direct solar thermal power generation systems; Wind power, off-grid small wind power and other technologies.
