According to industry statistics, from January to June 2018, nationwide newly installed wind power capacity was 7.94 GW. By the end of June, cumulative wind power capacity reached 171.6 GW;From January to June, total wind power generation was 191.7 TWh, an increase of 28.7% year-on-year;average productivity was 1143 full-load hours, an increase of 159 hours year-on-year;from January to June, curtailment of wind power was 18.2 TWh, down 5.3 TWh year-on-year。

From January to June, provinces with relatively high newly installed capacity were Jiangsu province (920 MW), Inner Mongolia (910 MW), Qinghai (850 MW), Henan (660 MW), Shanxi (590 MW), and Ningxia (540 MW)。Provinces with relatively high productivity were Yunnan (1592 full-load hours), Liaoning (1335 hours), Fujian (1302 hours), Hebei (1297 hours), and Sichuan (1296 hours)。

Notes:1. Unit of installed capacity:MW;Generation unit:GWh;
2. Statistics are as dispatched by the grid companies. The main difference between these statistics and the CEC statistics is that wind power installations below 6000 kW and in the Shaanxi regional electric power grid are included.。
