GEI is a clean energy-dominant, electric-centric modern energy system that is globally interconnected, jointly constructed and mutually beneficial to all. It is an important platform for large-scale development, transmission and consumption of clean energy resources worldwide. In essence, GEI is “Smart Grid + UHV Grid + Clean Energy”.
In the cause of building GEI, the overall plan is to adhere to a path of green, low-carbon and sustainable development with "Two Replacements" as orientation, accelerate construction of trans-national and intercontinental backbone grids based on cutting-edge technologies like UHV and smart grid, and form global power channels featuring "9 horizontal and 9 vertical".
With the ultimate goal of fostering clean development, GEI provides a systematic solution for achieving sustainable development and addressing acute issues such as resource depletion, climate change, environmental pollution and energy poverty, as well as offering broad development prospects and investment opportunities for energy and power sector.
