NEA releases 2018 wind power market evaluation results

The National Energy Administration (NEA) has released the results of the monitoring and evaluation of market conditions for wind power generation in 2018. The results serve as an important basis for promoting continual optimization of wind construction and operation, guiding rational investment and promoting orderly development of the overall wind industry. (NEA)

l  In the "red regions", wind development and construction has been halted (including already approved projects for which construction is suspended)

l  In the "orange regions", construction of new wind projects has been terminated (No new construction projects have been reported for 2019)

l  In the "green regions" construction is being carried out normally

While the map below shows color codes on a provincial basis, some cities are treated differently, including Zhangjiakou, Chengde, Xinzhou, Suzhou, Datong and Yulin in Hebei, Shanxi and Shaanxi which are all considered as orange zones despite being in green provinces.

Henan to eliminate 1.5GW of coal-fired power units in 2019

The Implementation Plan of Atmospheric Pollution Prevention and Control in Henan Province has been released to strengthen the control of total coal consumption. The plan aims to contain the total coal consumption in the province at around 210 million tons in 2019, down about 5% year-on-year (YOY). It also aims to eliminate 1.5GW of coal-fired power units in Henan in 2019, and accelerate the development of wind power by promoting the construction of four 1000MW wind power bases.
