Coal power still has a towering presence in China’s electricity generation, but the share of nuclear and renewable energy keeps increasing as the country is changing course towards a cleaner energy mix. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the share of coal-fired capacity in China’s total installed capacity will decrease from 58% in 2016 to 32% by 2040 and the installed low-carbon capacity, led by hydropower, wind and solar PV, will account for 60% of the total capacity by 2040. In 2018, China ranked first globally in terms of installed power generation capacity, consumption and power grid scale. The electricity producers in China currently sell most of their output at regulated prices set by the grid companies under the supervision of the government. However, an important reform policy aiming at enhancing the share of electricity sold through market mechanisms is under way.
