ABB recently celebrated its new green factory at Shanghai Minhang as the installed 3.1-MW solar power facilities began official operation. The project marks the company’s latest move to achieve low-carbon and sustainable development. Guests from Shanghai Electric Power Co, Shanghai Land Minhong (Group) Co and Shanghai Minhang Park PV Project Co as well as the management representatives of ABB in China attended the launching ceremony.
Wang Yundan, chairman of Shanghai Electric Power, said, “I’m glad to see all parties have sincerely cooperated since the contract signing of this pilot project in October 2017, which plays a leading role in the energy performance contracting market. In Shanghai, we are accelerating the formation of a business model for distributed energy supply projects, actively exploring the customized energy service market and innovatively developing emerging industries such as smart city and Internet Plus. This is the first distributed PV green energy project jointly developed by Shanghai Electric Power and ABB.”
Fang Jingjing, vice president of Shanghai Land Minhong and chairman of Shanghai Minhang United Development Co, said, “This is the first distributed PV green energy project in Minhang Economic and Technological Development Zone. Adopting the mode of ‘generating power for private use and feeding surplus power to the grid’, it will be a new chapter in the development zone’s grid development and new energy promotion. It is another significant achievement that reflects the concept of ‘green development’ highlighted in the 19th NCCPC report, adding green, environmental-friendly and intelligent elements to its further development and helping the zone form a new pattern of energy mix optimization and innovative development of enterprises.”
In recent years, China has been accelerating the transformation toward clean and low-carbon energy, achieving remarkable development of renewable energy by possessing the world’s largest hydro, wind and PV power installed capacities. As planned, the proportion of non-fossil fuels in the country’s primary energy consumption will reach 15% and 20% respectively by 2020 and 2030. In this process, ABB’s leading products, technologies and solutions can perfectly cater to the rapid development of clean energy in the country.
As a major subsidiary of State Power Investment Corp and one of the most important electric energy enterprises in Shanghai, Shanghai Electric Power is actively engaged in restructuring. New energy installments such as wind and solar account for 15.35% of its total installed capacity of over 12GW, clean energy production thus takes up more than 35.86%. Currently, the company is vigorously developing under the strategic layout of “being leading in Shanghai, strong in China and excellent in the world”.
Approved by the State Council in 1986 and covering an area of 3.5km2, the Minhang Economic and Technological Development Zone is one of the first national-level development zones in China. Up to now, the zone has formed an industry map dominated by equipment manufacturing, biomedicine and new materials, accommodating 20 R&D institutes with international advances and 14 enterprise clusters. Enterprises invested by Fortune 500 multinational companies account for more than 40% of the total enterprises in the zone.
