We pledge a five-point initiative to further accelerate the deployment of wind power in China and worldwide:
Build an industrial development plan that supports China’s goal of carbon neutrality.
To promote the steady and rapid deployment of wind power, we will formulate scientific and tangible plans for China’s wind power development over the next five years and to the long term, with the aim to incorporate these plans into the basic strategy for building a “carbon neutral country” by 2060. Taking into account the national carbon neutrality strategy, practical feasibility, technology curve, and grid conditions, the 14th Five-Year Plan published in 2021 should outline a sufficiently ambitious target for wind power, aiming for more than 50 GW of annual installations from 2021 to 2025 and more than 60 GW annually from 2026 onwards. An industrial development plan of this scale would bring China’s cumulative wind capacity to at least 800 GW by 2030 and 3,000 GW by 2060, in line with the long-term carbon neutrality goal.
Create a favorable industrial policy environment for wind and renewable energy.
Stable and predictable policies are crucial to boosting market confidence, reducing overall supply chain costs, and ensuring long-term sustainable development. Governments should maintain continuity of policy targets for green growth and increase policy support for cost-effective wind power. We call for the strict implementation of laws and regulations on renewable energy, protecting the interests of clean energy sector development and resolutely curbing any activities in conflict with the national green development strategy.
Make wind power a driving force of green recovery.
Governments should place a green economy at the core of their stimulus plans. By increasing investment in renewable energy, industry and policymakers can work together for the coordinated, green, open, and shared development of a harmonious and prosperous society. Stimulus plans and packages must recognize the capacity for wind and renewable energy to provide a wide range of socioeconomic benefits, revitalize rural communities, and improve the overall living conditions and wellbeing of a population.
Promote the green revolution to resolve demand-side challenges.
We call for demand-side structural reforms to change energy consumption patterns, raise the proportion of green energy demand, and promote low-carbon development. Incentive mechanisms and streamlined permitting and consenting frameworks must be enabled to drive wind power deployment and increase green power consumption. We should prioritize renewable energy procurement by government agencies, public utilities and industry, gradually increasing the share of green power consumption in the energy, transportation, industry, heating and other sectors. Governments should encourage and facilitate more demonstration cities with 100% clean energy use.
Foster mechanisms for closer international cooperation.
Wind power is a highly globalized industry, for which close collaboration is essential. International coordination mechanisms should be established for technical and industrial standards, in order to minimize trade barriers and facilitate the free flow of resources. We will carry out joint research on cutting-edge and common technologies, share innovative outcomes, enhance technical strength, and bring down supply chain costs. We will bolster mutual trust to build a strong and effective supply chain that is resistant to improper or unfair market behavior.
