“Economic Information Daily” reporter learned from the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council on the 19th that the Party Committee of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission held an enlarged meeting on October 18 to redeploy and re-arrange the central enterprises’ efforts to ensure energy and power supply this winter and next spring. The meeting emphasized that the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) has issued measures for rewards and punishments for energy supply guarantee assessment this winter and next spring, taking guarantee supply as the main indicator of enterprise assessment this year and implementing “one-vote veto” to further promote enterprises to fulfill their responsibilities and make more contributions to energy supply guarantees.
Hao Peng, secretary and director of the SASAC Party Committee, said at the meeting that it is necessary to coordinate energy security, green transformation and development, and production and operation safety, take more effective measures to enhance energy security and stability assurance capabilities, and effectively play the role of central enterprises as the backbone of the main force.
The meeting requested that coal enterprises should optimize the layout of production capacity, promote coal mines with the potential to increase production to release production capacity as soon as possible, accelerate the commissioning of open-pit coal mines that have been approved and completed, strengthen coordination with local state-owned enterprises to improve supply capacity, take the lead in implementing long-term price agreement, and actively guarantee Power generation and heating and the people’s coal demand; power generation and heating companies must make every effort to ensure that the generating units can be fully opened, and hydropower and nuclear power companies must “compete for each kilowatt-hour” under the premise of ensuring safety, and actively improve the power supply capacity; Enterprises should strengthen the allocation of resources on a large scale and the unified dispatch of the entire network, improve the intelligent level of the grid, enhance the ability to absorb new energy and safe operation, cooperate with local governments to improve the orderly power plan, and resolutely protect people’s livelihood, winter heating, public services, etc. Electricity demand: Petroleum and petrochemical and pipeline network companies should increase production and reserves, increase oil and gas exploration and development, actively develop shale gas and coal-bed methane, improve the efficiency of pipeline network operations, carry out diversified international oil and gas cooperation, and continuously improve the ability to ensure supply.
The central enterprises are the main force in China’s energy supply, and they are responsible for more than 90% of the oil and gas supply, more than 60% of the electricity supply, and more than 25% of the coal supply. The head of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, Liu Shaowei, recently stated at the State Council’s policy briefing on energy security supply this winter and spring that central enterprises have actively increased production and sales to stabilize supply since this year, in the face of the tight supply of coal and electricity. From January to September, the output of coal-fired power generation by central SOEs increased by 14.4% year-on-year, 1.5 percentage points higher than the growth rate of electricity consumption in the whole society; coal production increased by 5.9% year-on-year, 1.5 percentage points higher than the growth rate of the national coal industry.
