China's power generation climbed 6.9% from January to November

The growth of coal-fired generation outpaced hydropower and solar due to unfavourable weather.

China’s power generation grew 6.9% in the first 11 months of 2018 (January to November) compared to the same period last year.

According to an announcement, this pace of growth is slower than the 7.2% rate in 10M2018. In November, power generation rose by 3.6%.

Coal-fired electricity generation expanded at a faster pace in November, rising 3.9% YoY, whilst the generation of hydroelectricity and solar power both posted a slower growth rate due to unfavourable weather.

Wind-generated power output fell 9.5% YoY last month, compared with a rise of 4.2% in October, because of a high comparative base from November of last year and low wind speed last month.
