From January to August in my country, the power generation of power plants above designated size increased by 0.2% over the same period of the previous year

From January to August, my country’s national installed capacity of 6,000 kilowatts and above power plants was 1.85 billion kilowatts, a year-on-year increase of 5.6%, an increase of 6.96 million kilowatts from the previous month, and the growth rate was 0.2 percentage points higher than the same period last year.

According to the source of electricity: thermal power 1.16 billion kilowatts, of which coal-fired power generation is 1.02 billion kilowatts, gas-fired power generation is 88.88 million kilowatts; hydropower is 310 million kilowatts, of which conventional hydropower is 280 million kilowatts; nuclear power is 46.99 million kilowatts ; 200 million kilowatts of wind power; 140 million kilowatts of solar power.

  

Specifically, in terms of thermal power, from January to August, the thermal power generation of power plants above designated size across the country was 3.3853 trillion kWh, a year-on-year decrease of 0.1%, and the growth rate dropped 7.3 percentage points from the same period last year. In terms of provinces, a total of 15 provinces across the country increased their thermal power generation capacity year-on-year. Among them, Tibet (134.2%) and Hubei (22.0%) had a growth rate of more than 20%, and Guangxi had a growth rate of more than 10%. (14.8%), Sichuan (13.3%) and Jilin (11.4%); in addition, among the 16 provinces with a year-on-year decrease in thermal power generation, Qinghai, Yunnan, Hunan, Fujian, Guangdong and Zhejiang have decreased by more than 10%, respectively -14.1%, -13.0%, -12.3%, -11.4%, -10.3% and -10.3%.
