Green power trading is based on green power products such as wind power and photovoltaics as the subject matter, and is set up within the framework of the medium and long-term power market mechanism, which can fully reflect the power value and environmental value of green power, and provide the corresponding green power consumption certification. It will effectively promote the development of new energy and promote the active consumption of green power from both sides of supply and demand, which will effectively promote the development of new energy and promote the active consumption of green power by the whole society. A total of 17 provinces participated in the first national green power pilot transaction, and 9 market entities in Hubei participated in the transaction.
