In 2023, Anhui Province achieved remarkable results in the development of renewable energy. The annual newly added installed capacity exceeded 10 million kilowatts for the first time, reaching 12.13 million kilowatts, with a growth rate of 87.5%. The cumulative installed capacity reached 48.24 million kilowatts, accounting for 44.6% of the total installed power generation capacity in the whole society, which is the highest proportion in the Yangtze River Delta region, increasing by 5.4 percentage points compared to 2022. Among them, the cumulative installed capacity of wind and photovoltaic power reached nearly 40 million kilowatts, doubling since 2020, and rose by three places in the national ranking compared to the previous year.

According to the responsible person from the New Energy Department of Anhui Provincial Energy Bureau, in recent years, Anhui has been promoting the doubling of wind and solar power installations. To address the land constraints for the rapid development of wind and solar power, the province conducted a comprehensive survey of wind and solar power development resources and encouraged localities to incorporate the spatial information of projects into the land and spatial planning according to regulations, guiding the rational layout and accelerating the pre-construction work. In 2023, Anhui province added 12.01 million kilowatts of wind and solar power, an increase of 128%.

At the same time, efforts were made to strengthen the whole process management and services including registration, construction, and grid connection to promote the standardized and orderly development of distributed photovoltaic power. In 2023, Anhui province added 8.47 million kilowatts of distributed photovoltaic installations, becoming the main driving force for the accelerated development of renewable energy in the province. By the end of 2023, the cumulative installed capacity of distributed photovoltaic power in the province reached 19.37 million kilowatts, a year-on-year increase of 77.7%.

In 2023, Anhui province's renewable energy generation reached 62.33 billion kilowatt-hours, a year-on-year increase of 19.9%, an increase of 6.8 percentage points compared to 2022. It accounted for 17.7% of the province's total power generation, an increase of 1.8 percentage points compared to 2022. The cumulative generation of renewable energy in the province indirectly replaced the consumption of approximately 25.51 million tons of coal, equivalent to a reduction of approximately 48.47 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
