In recent years, Qinghai has adjusted energy structure, concentrated on developing new-type clean energy, and has developed photovoltaic generation in areas like Qaidam.

To solve the uneven power generation during day and night and Internet bottleneck problems, peak shaving power station has been established in Qaidam to improve power delivery network such as Qinghai & Tibet power grid or Qinghai & Xinjiang power grid and expressway for photovoltaic power generation has been built.

Meanwhile, Qinghai plans to establish distributed photovoltaic generation in Golmud for test trial and aims to merge into State Grid this year.
