China expects its installed power generation capacity to be about 2,000 gigawatts (GW) in 2019, with coal-fired power capacity at 1,040 GW, the China Electricity Council (CEC) said at an industry event on Tuesday.
Consumption by coal-fired plants is expected to increase by 80 million tonnes in 2019 versus 2018, said the CEC.
The CEC also sees installed new power capacity at 110 GW in 2019, including 62 GW coming from non-fossil fuel, Hou Yong, director of the CEC’s department of industrial development and environment resources said at the event.
The CEC expects first-quarter power consumption to increase about 6 percent from a year earlier.
