According to industry statistics, from January to September 2018, nationwide additions of wind power capacity was 12,610 MW. Total installed wind power capacity reached 176 GW by the end of September;From January to September, nationwide wind power production was 267.6 TWh, an increase of 26% on the same period last year;average productivity was 1565 full-load hours, an increase of 178 hours on the same period last year;From January to September, nationwide curtailment of wind power was 22.2 TWh, down 7.4 TWh on the same period last year。

From January to September, the provinces with relatively large additions to wind power capacity were Inner Mongolia (1,930 MW), Jiangsu (1,560 MW), Shanxi (1,170 MW), Qinghai (1,100 MW), and Henan (860 MW)。Provinces with the highest average productivity were Shanghai (1909 full-load hours), Jiangsu (1857 hours), Yunnan (1848 hours), Liaoning (1750 hours), and Fujian (1722 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。
4. The "Provincial target for maximum annual curtailment" are the 2018 annual curtailment rate targets as promised by the provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) in implementing the "Plan of action for resolving curtailment of hydropower, wind power and PV power generation"; “--” indicates that a curtailment rate target for wind power has not been proposed in the plan of action.。
