2017 electricity & other energy statistics

Original title: 2017年全国电力工业统计快报数据一览表
Links: Source document (in Chinese) (link). Same statistics for (2016) (2015) (2014) (2013) (2012) (2011) (2010) (2009) (2008) (2007) (2006).

Please note: The statistical bulletin below is from the China Electricity Council, the authoritative source for these statistics. In recent years, these bulletins have become less detailed. Most importantly, these do no longer provide separate values for coal, gas, oil etc.. China Energy Portal strives to post more detailed statistics when they become available. Please check back later for updates.

Please note: An updated version of these statistics is available here: (link)

[*: In these graphs, biomass power production has been subtracted from values reported for 'Thermal' by the CEC (in the statistical bulletin below). Data on biomass production is from the NEA (link)]

Note:1. Power production, total electricity consumption and generation capacity data are industry statistics totals from the China Electricity Council。
2. Wind and solar power generation and generation capacity statistics are for grid-connected capacity。
3. Due to differences in statistical standards, confirmation of moment of grid connection, and other reasons, there are certain discrepancies in data on total and newly installed generation capacity。
4. Data for Xinjiang Autonomous Region based on statistical collection methods used by the Xinjiang Electric Power Company。
5. Completed investment data are projects included in the CEC power industry statistics for large power companies。
