For China, one of its most important commitments is to realize its “3060” targets of achieving a CO2 emission peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060. However, for a developing country with heavy carbon utilization, achieving carbon neutrality in a short period necessitates tough changes. This paper briefly introduces energy and electricity scenarios and analyzes the challenges based on the current power system in China. Moreover, it summarizes the six characteristics of China’s future power grid and highlights some partially representative projects in the country.
