2017 wind power installations and production by province
Newly installed capacity 2017 (MW)
[graphs added by China Energy Portal]
According to industry statistics, newly installed grid-connected capacity of wind power was 15.03 GW in 2017, with cumulative grid-connected capacity reaching 164 GW, accounting for 9.2% of the total installed power generation capacity。Annual wind power generation was 305.7 TWh, accounting for 4.8% of the total power generation, up 0.7 percentage points from 2016。In 2017, the national average wind power productivity was 1,948 full-load hours, an increase of 203 hours compared with last year。Annual wind power curtailment was 41.9 billion TWh, a reduction of 7.8 TWh compared with last year, with significant improvements in curtailment。
In 2017, administrative areas with higher than average wind power productivity were Fujian (2,756 full-load hours), Yunnan (2,484 hours), Sichuan (2,353 hours) and Shanghai (2,337 hours)。
In 2017, administrative areas with wind power curtailment rates exceeding 10% were Gansu (33% curtailment, or 9.2 TWh of curtailed wind power), Xinjiang (29%, or 13.3 TWh), Jilin (21%, or 2.3 TWh), Inner Mongolia (15%, or 9.5 TWh) and Heilongjiang (14%, or 1.8 TWh)。
2017 grid-connected wind power operational statistics
|Province (autonomous region, municipality)||Newly installed grid-connected generation capacity (MW)||Cumulative grid-connected generation capacity (MW)||Electricity production (GWh)||Curtailment (GWh)||Curtailment (%)||Productivity (full-load hours)|
Notes：1. Unit of installed capacity：MW；Generation unit：GWh；
2. Source of statistics on grid-connected installed capacity, power production, and productivity is the CEC；
3. Sources of statistics on curtailment and curtailment rates are the National Renewable Energy Center, and relevant grid enterprises。
