According to the state energy administration, the national development and Reform Commission and the State Energy Administration recently issued the notice on planning and construction after the power approval authority of power projects is decentralized. According to the notice, the State Energy Administration will make clear the relevant requirements for the preparation, implementation, evaluation, adjustment, and supervision of the national five-year power development plan by formulating power planning management measures. The notice requires that the guiding role of power planning should be strengthened and the national and local power development planning should be coordinated. According to the notice, the relevant national five-year electric power development plan determines the power demand forecast level, non-fossil energy development target, power transmission and receiving capacity between provinces (regions), construction scale and layout of thermal power (including self-provided power station), general policy of power grid development and key construction tasks, etc. The circular also said that the total quantity control objectives of coal-fired power stations should be revised in time, the planning projects of coal-fired power stations should be adjusted in a rolling manner, the power grid planning projects should be adjusted timely, and the contents of planning projects should be optimized and adjusted. The notice proposes that the National Development and Reform Commission and the State Energy Administration should accelerate the construction of a scientific and reasonable power planning system with clear rights and responsibilities. The national electric power planning guides the provincial electric power planning. The provincial electric power planning is subject to the national electric power planning. The national electric power planning and the provincial electric power planning should be connected, coordinated, and unified. The circular also said that the National Energy Administration should strengthen supervision during and after the event, and require the Provincial Development and Reform Commission (Energy Bureau) to cut down in principle according to the priority order for those exceeding the total amount control target. The Provincial Development and Reform Commission (Energy Bureau) shall make planning adjustments for those do not conform to the industrial policies or have major defects in the planning layout and construction conditions. On August 31, it was learned from the National Energy Administration that the Energy Administration issued the action plan for distribution network construction and transformation (2015-2020) to speed up the construction and transformation of distribution network, and make it clear that the investment in the construction and transformation of distribution network in the next five years will not be less than 2 trillion yuan, of which the investment in 2015 will not be less than 300 billion yuan, and the accumulated investment during the 13th Five Year Plan period will not be less than 1.7 trillion yuan to build intelligent, modern and reliable power distribution Net.
