BEIJING, Jan. 15, 2013

BEIJING, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Huaneng Power International, Inc.
("HPI" or the "Company") (NYSE: HNP; HKEx: 902; SSE: 600011) announced its
power generation of 2012.

According to the Company's preliminary statistics, as of December 31, 2012,
the Company's total power generation within China on consolidated basis
amounted to 302.433 billion kWh, representing a decrease of 3.55% over the
same period last year; accumulated electricity sold amounted to 285.455
billion kWh, representing a decrease of 3.47% over the same period last year.

The decrease in power generation of the Company was mainly attributable to the
following reasons:

1.Affected by the slower economic growth nationwide and the weak demand for
    electricity, the power generation in the areas where the Company's power
    plants are located grew by only 1.3% in 2012. The power generation by
    coal-fired generating plants decreased by 2.4% on consolidated basis over
    the same period last year.
2.The average capacity growth rate of the Company's coal-fire generating
    units in 2012 was 3.7 percentage points lower than that in the locations
    where the Company's power plants are situated, which affected the
    Company's share in the power generation market.
3.In 2012, there had been a rich supply of water to hydropower plants in the
    provinces and municipalities including Hunan, Jiangxi, Chongqing, Fujian,
    Gansu and Yunnan. The power generation by hydropower generating plants in
    the six provinces and municipalities increased by 31% on consolidated
    basis over the same period last year. In particular, there had been a
    sharp increase in the hydropower generation provided to Guangdong from
    Three Gorges, Yunnan and Guizhou. The rise of hydropower generation
    narrowed the demand for coal-fired power generation in the provinces where
    hydropower is generated or provided, and significantly affected the
    Company's generation output.
4.The long-term suspension of the coal mines in the surrounding areas of
    Yunnan Diandong due to safety accidents in the first quarter of 2012
    resulted in tense supply of coal to the Company's two power plants in
    Diandong, and affected electricity production of the Company.

The power generation and electricity sold by each of the Company's domestic
power plants in 2012 are listed below (in billion kWh):
