Xinhua, Beijing, on February 2 reports:On February 2nd the National Energy Administration reported that in 2015, the national wind power industry continues to maintain strong growth. Annual installed capacity of wind power was 32.97 GW, a new installation record. Cumulative grid-connected capacity reached 129 GW, accounting for 8.6% of total installed generation capacity。Wind power production supplied to the grid stood at 186.3 TWh, accounting for 3.3% of total electricity production。Newly approved wind power capacity was 43 GW in 2015, an increase of 7 GW compared with last year. Cumulative approved capacity stands at 216 GW, with 87.07 GW of approved capacity under construction。

The average number of full-load hours was 1728 hours in 2015, down 172 hours from last year. The highest number of full-load hours was recorded in Fujian, at 2658 hours, with the lowest recorded in Gansu, at 1184 hours。During 2015, wind power curtailment worsened; total curtailment of wind power over the year was 33.9 TWh, an increase of 21.3 TWh from last year. Curtailment was equal to 15% of all wind power production, an increase of 7 percentage points from last year. Curtailment was highest in Inner Mongolia (9.1 TWh, or 18% of all wind power production), Gansu (8.2 TWh, or 39%), Xinjiang (7.1 TWh, or 32%), Jilin (2.7 TWh, or 32%)。
