    China Electricity market report transcript

    China Electricity Market Global Industry Outlook

    • Electricity generation capacity is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7 percent for next two years, with a growth of 33 percent CAGR in the renewable generation capacity from wind power
    • China's dependence on thermal power capacity declined from 77 percent to 60 percent, 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 1.89 tera watts (1.89 TW), with water, wind, and solar sources, accounting for 37.4 percent in 2018  up from 34 percent in 2016
    • It ranks first in R&D renewable energy with $1.9 billion spending by 2016 and it has the world's largest floating solar panel with a generation capacity of 40MW


    • The China Electricity Market Overview Capacity 2018: 1,899 GW and 2018–2020: 7.7 percent CAGR
    •  According to China electric power market reports, the impactful cost components are: Cost of generation has a huge impact on final prices and its share in final china electricity prices for industrial consumers varies between 55–65 percent depending upon the cost of input fuel sources.
    • China Electricity Price Outlook: From 2018, the Chinese government supported industrial and commercial customers by reducing the electricity prices by 10 percent in order to promote economic development.
    • China electricity price drivers: Government Regulations | Crude Oil Prices | Electricity Industrial Demand | Renewable Energy.

    Supply and Demand

    • Electricity generation is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6 percent for next two years to keep up with consumption while it is slower than expected and is expected to increase spare capacity in next few years
    • Electricity consumption in the grid is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5 percent for next 2 years, reaching 7912 TWh
    • in 2020
    • 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 by 2019
    • Dependence on hydro, wind, and solar rose to 25.4 percent in 2018, in terms of electricity generation and by 37.4 percent, in terms of electric power generation capacity

    Generation and Consumption Profile 

    • Secondary industry has the highest share of 69% percent in the consumption share in 2018, followed by tertiary industry sector with 15.77 percent share
    • The tertiary industry sector is expected to have the highest consumption growth rate of 11 percent, followed by the residential sector
