    China Electricity market report transcript

    China Electricity Market Global Industry Outlook

    • The global power generation is expected to grow at approx. 2-3 percent CAGR through 2021–2024

    • The electricity market in China is a regulated market with the government controlling most of the assets in generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity

    • The APAC region, the largest consumers of electricity, would be the pivotal point for this growth, amid COVID-induced pandemic

    • China is one of the largest generators of renewable energy. In 2021, the country has generated about 2,322.7 TWh of electricity from hydro, solar, and wind power plants increase from 2082.9 TWh in 2020. With the same growth rate, the expected generation in 2022 is 2,590 TWh


    Industry Structure and Outlook

    Generation Capacity

    • China’s generation capacity has been growing strong in the last 5 years even in the renewable generation capacity. Despite the commitment to reduce GHG emissions the fossil fuel based generation capacity has also grown

    • Electricity generation capacity is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3 to 5 percent for next year, with wind and solar will contribute the major growth factor

    • China’s dependence on thermal power capacity increased from 70 percent in 2018 to 65 percent in 2021, and it can be expected to go below 50 percent by 2030 if the coal power production curb continues

    • China’s total electric power capacity increased to just over 2.37 terawatts, with hydro, wind, and solar sources, accounting for 41 percent in 2021 up from 39 percent in 2020 with a growth rate of 13 percent

    Supply and Demand

    • With the large-scale manufacturing projects, the country's electricity demand is predicted to continue to expand at a rate of 4% to 5%

    • Electricity generation is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4–5 percent for the next two years to keep up with consumption which is also in same trend

    • Electricity consumption in the grid is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2-4 percent for the next two years, reaching around 8800 TWh in 2023.

    • Transmission losses are at 5–6 percent currently, which is lower than the world average of 8 percent and it is expected that the losses will remain at a level of 5–6 percent for next couple of years

    • Dependence on hydro, wind, and solar rose to 28 percent in 2021, in terms of electricity generation and by 41 percent, in terms of electricity generation capacity

    Generation and Consumption Profile 

    Market Consumption Outlook

    • Secondary industries are the largest consumers of electricity this sector is one of the fastest growing in the Chinese economy consumes about 67.5 percent of the country’s power consumption

    • Secondary industry has the highest share of 68.3 percent in the consumption share in 2020, followed by tertiary industry sector with 16.42 percent share.
