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)。
