PolyU and China Southern Power Grid Company Limited (CSG) have joined forces to establish the Joint Institute for Green and Secure Power Grid. It will take forward the development of the country’s new power systems initiative. The institute will help to meet the growing demand for clean energy in China, which is crucial to help it reach its goals to peak carbon emissions and attain carbon neutrality.
CSG will provide RMB30 million in the next five years to fund a series of fundamental and forward-looking research projects which will be conducted by PolyU. An interdisciplinary research team from PolyU will work with experts from CSG on creating digital twin technology for power equipment and the digitalisation of electric power distribution to facilitate the transformation and upgrading of China’s power grid. The Joint Institute will also participate in major provincial and national projects to contribute to national energy security, and cultivate a team of interdisciplinary experts to assist in the building of new national power systems.
