Keynote Speaker

"Building a New Power System Based on New Energy for Clean Energy Transition"

We are honoured to have Mr. XIN Baoan, the Executive Chairman of the State Grid Corporation of China as the keynote speaker of the Opening Ceremony of the Virtual Centennial Session on August 20, 2021.

Mr. Xin Baoan will share three observations on building power systems based on new energy for clean energy transition .

First, power systems around the globe are undergoing profound changes like never before, towards decarbonization, digitalization and  resilience.

Second, new power systems must be built for the clean and low-carbon transition. With new features emerging from supply and demand sides, from the grid and the whole system as well, such building process is an enduring systemic task.

Third, power utilities are to perform the major task of building new power systems. State Grid Corporation of China is committed to being a leader, a facilitator and a pioneer in the clean transition.
