The first decentralised energy demonstration project in China’s Guangdong province is to run on combined heat and power.

Two SGT-400 gas turbines from Siemens Energy will power the planned Guangzhou Aoutou Decentralised Energy Station, which will provide electricity to the Aotou Industrial Zone as well as steam and cooling for businesses in the zone.
A focus on decentralised energy systems, especially those fueled by natural gas, is central to China’s twelfth five-year plan for renewable energy development. Around 1000 decentralised energy projects and around 10 natural gas decentralised energy demonstration zones are planned to be built in China by 2015.

‘Natural gas decentralised energy system has the feature of highly efficient, environmental friendly, fast speed, high flexibility and low emission,’ said Zhang Tian Gui, senior vice president of Siemens Ltd, China and general manager of Energy Sector China’s power generation division.
