14th Five-Year Plan on Modern Energy System Planning

legislation type Executive
Plan
Passed in 2022
This plan explicitly mentions global climate governance and the ongoing low-carbon transformation of the energy and industry sectors. It seeks to coordinate measures to improve national energy security and achieve carbon peaking by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060 to ensure a high-quality economic and social development. It adheres to the national people-entered development philosophy. It also reasserts the regulating role of coal and the goal of boosting national production of natural gas. It enshrines into national policy the goal of supporting developing countries with green energy while not supporting any new overseas coal power projects.

The plan calls for a speed up of the adjustment of the energy sector. It seeks to:
strengthen power security and electricity greed in particular
Improve energy network security management and control.
Strengthen risk management and emergency management. 
Sets a number of energy targets and development of non-fossil energy for 2025
Accelerate the promotion of green and low-carbon transformation of energy (chapter 4).
Enhanced power coordination and optimised operation capability. Improvement of wind and photovoltaic power forecasts.
Accelerate the large-scale application of new energy storage technologies. Promote the development of power-side energy storage. Improve power load flexibility. Strengthen the construction of power demand side response capacity.

  • By 2025, the annual comprehensive production capacity of domestic energy will reach more than 4.6 billion tons of standard coal, the annual output of crude oil will recover and stabilize at the level of 200 million tons, the annual output of natural gas will reach more than 230 billion cubic meters, and the total installed capacity of power generation will reach about 3 billion kilowatts. The energy reserve system will be further improved, and the independent energy supply capacity will be further enhanced. The power emergency safety guarantee capability of key cities, core areas and important users has been significantly improved.
    Energy | Fixed level target | Target year: 2025 | Base year: 2022
  • The low-carbon transformation of energy has achieved remarkable results. Carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP have been reduced by 18% in five years. By 2025, the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption will increase to about 20%, the proportion of non-fossil energy power generation will reach about 39%, the level of electrification will continue to improve, and electricity will account for about 30% of final energy consumption.
    Energy | Intensity target and trajectory target | Target year: 2025 | Base year: 2022
  • By 2025, the proportion of flexible power supply will reach about 24%, and the response capacity of the power demand side will reach 3% to 5% of the maximum power load.
    Energy | Intensity target and trajectory target | Target year: 2025 | Base year: 2022
  • The ability to guarantee energy security has been greatly improved, and green production and consumption patterns
    Widely formed, the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption will be increased on the basis of reaching 25% in 2030.
