Outlook for 2017
The year of 2017 is a critical year for implementing the national “13th Five-Year Plan” of economy. With the roll-out of the national “13th Five-Year” plans for energy and power in succession, the reform of energy production, supply, consumption and system will be further advanced. At the same time, the supply-side structural reform, state-owned enterprise reform and power system reform will exert profound influence on the energy industry.
According to the forecast from China Electricity Council, it is expected that the national total power consumption will increase by about 3% year on year, with sufficient national power supply. It is expected that additional national power generation installed capacity will reach approximately 110 million kilowatt in 2017, of which the installed capacity of non-fossil energy power generation will be approximately 60 million kilowatt, the utilization hours of power generating units will still be under pressure. In general, the operation and development of power industry will face greater challenges.
