“People tend to overestimate the changes of the year and tend to underestimate the changes of the decade” has become a widely recognized “stylized fact” about the development of things. Using this phrase to describe the wind power industry, and even the entire renewable energy industry, is also appropriate. This is prominently reflected in the development of new energy sources and industries such as wind power in the past 10 years, as well as its impact on the system, concepts and culture.
There is no doubt that nearly 10 years after the wind power passed was a decade of great success. However, there are still many challenges in the current wind power industry, such as irresolvable wind curtailment and power shortages, huge gaps in subsidies, green fees, and controversial low-cost Internet access. How to deal with these challenges is the key to the development of the wind power industry in the next ten years.
Standing at the critical intersection of the wind power industry, we look back and look forward to the future with a period of ten years.
In mid-October 2017, the International Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition (CWP2017) was held in Beijing. This is the tenth year of this event. The author had the privilege of participating in the major forums and exhibitions, and also in the past 10 years. China's wind power industry has grown from scratch, from small to large, from weak to strong growth, and has become a major stakeholder and new energy industry. Strength, I feel very excited.
In the first half of this year, the Draworld Center collaborated with several domestic authoritative research and consulting agencies, and with the support of Greenpeace International, it issued the “China Wind Power Photovoltaic Power Generation Synergies” to evaluate China’s wind power generation. Comprehensive benefits in energy, environment, economics, social and industrial organization. On this basis, this article will focus on the impact and impact of wind power PV systems and concepts.
As the starting point of the article, the author will review the views and discussions on the same and similar structures in history based on the observations and feelings of participating in this year's wind energy conference.
We will see that some problems are still in the old system and there is a great path dependence; while others have undergone tremendous changes, and have formed a new paradigm (Paradigm) and story (Narrative); some "good" And "bad" is obvious, and some are still to be explored and discussed. This is due to the development of a more open, competition-based energy industry environment and the improvement of the government's regulatory system based on making up for "market failures."
