According to industry statistics, in 2018, newly installed wind power capacity was 20.59 GW, with cumulative installed capacity reaching 184 GW, accounting for 9.7% of total power generation capacity。Wind power generation in 2018 was 366 TWh, accounting for 5.2% of total power generation, up 0.4 percentage points from 2017。Nationwide average productivity of wind power installations was 2095 full-load hours, up 147 hours on 2017;Curtailment was 27.7 TWh, down 14.2 TWh from 2017. Average wind power curtailment rates were 7 percent, down 5 percentage points from 2017, a significant relief in curtailment conditions。

In 2018, provinces with relatively high wind power productivity were Yunnan (2654 full-load hours), Fujian (2587 hours), Shanghai (2489 hours) and Sichuan (2333 hours)。

In 2018, areas with curtailment exceeding 8% were ​​Xinjiang (curtailment rate of 23%, or 10.7 TWh, Gansu (curtailment rate of 19%, or 5.4 TWh), and Inner Mongolia (curtailment rate of 10%, or 7.2 TWh)。These three provinces (regions) together had total curtailment of 23.3 TWh, accounting for 84% of nationwide curtailment。

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。Blank cells indicates no curtailment occurred。
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.。
