SECTION 01 | ENERGY 40 07 QINGHAI ACHIEVES ZERO EMISSIONS FOR 168 HOURS NON-STOP The State Grid Corporation of China achieved 100% clean energy supply to the Qinghai province for a record-breaking 168 hours non-stop. During this period it relied on the coordinated use of various power sources including wind, hydro and solar and control and rolling closed- loop dispatching to achieve zero emissions moving them closer to achieving towns run on 100% renewable energies. The Qinghai Yellow River Hydropower Company developed a new model of water and solar complementarity using photovoltaic power generation of plants such as the Gonghe Photovoltaic Industrial Park, and upstream hydroelectric power stations, such as Longyangxia, CHINA SECTION 02 41 RENEWABLE ENERGY 08 WAVE POWER INSPIRED BY THE HEART CorPower Ocean AB has developed a compact high- efficiency Wave Energy Converter, with a design inspired by the pumping principles of the human heart. The design enables the converter to oscillate in resonance with the incoming waves, strongly amplifying their motion and power capture. This enables a significant reduction in the required buoy size compared to conventional wave energy converters, and improves survivability due to the ability to detune the device in storms. Public sector support has been provided at several stages including through the EU Horizon 2020 funded project WaveBoost. A half-scale unit is currently being tested on the coast of Scotland.
