2016 wind power installations and production by province
Original title: 2016年风电并网运行情况
Links: Original CN (link). Same statistics for (2017) (2015) (2014) (2013).
In 2016, the country's wind power sector maintained a healthy growth momentum. Newly installed capacity of wind power was 19.3 GW, with cumulative installed capacity reaching 149 GW, accounting for 9% of the total installed power generation capacity. Wind power electricity generation was 241 TWh, equal to 4% of total electricity generation。In 2016, nationwide average productivity was 1742 full-load hours, an increase of 14 hours, with curtailment of 49.7 TWh。
In 2016, provinces with relatively high annual additions were Yunnan (3.25 GW), Hebei (1.66 GW), Jiangsu (1.49 GW), Inner Mongolia (1.32 GW) and Ningxia (1.2 GW). Productivity was relatively high in Fujian (2503 full-load hours), Guangxi (2365 hours), Sichuan (2247 hours) and Yunnan (2223 hours)。
In 2016, wind power curtailment was most serious in Gansu (43%, or 10.4 TWh curtailed), Xinjiang (38%, 13.7 TWh), Jilin (30%, 2.9 TWh) Inner Mongolia (21%, 12.4 TWh)。
