China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec)-built Jiaze Gas Station in Jiangsu Province has now become China’s first gas station to achieve carbon neutrality as its distributed photovoltaic (PV) power generation project becomes operational.

Moreover, the Jiaze Gas Station adopted the model of ‘self generation for self usage with surplus power entering the grid,’ and achieves an uninterrupted switch with the State Grid. It uses solar power generation instead of coal-fired and supplies surplus power externally while meeting the power demands of the station.

Further, it is estimated that the annual power generation of the project will be 127,000 to 147,000 kWh, which can cut CO2 emissions by 91.2 to 105.6 tons.

Last year, the station’s power consumption stood at 99,000 kWh. During the whole 25 year life cycle of power station, it is expected to reduce 3,800 tons of CO2, 116 tons of sulfur dioxide and 56 tons of nitrogen oxide.

Besides, the Gas Station has implemented a series of measures to reduce carbon emissions, including oil vapor recovery and sewage recovery and treatment, to promote the construction and development of carbon-neutral gas stations.

Currently, Sinopec has established 160 solar power generation stations in the provinces of Hainan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan and more.

In next 5 years, the company is planning to setup 7,000 solar power generation stations, and Sinopec Jiangsu Oilfield Company plans to build 900 carbon-neutral gas stations.
