BEIJING, April 12, 2013

BEIJING, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Huaneng Power International, Inc.
("HPI" or the "Company") (NYSE: HNP; HKEx: 902; SSE: 600011) today announced
its power generation in the first quarter of 2013.

According to the Company's preliminary statistics, as of March 31, 2013, the
Company's total power generation within China on consolidated basis amounted
to 74.306 billion kWh, representing a decrease of 2.44% over the same period
last year. Total electricity sold by the Company amounted to 70.205 billion
kWh, representing a decrease of 2.25% over the same period last year.

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

1.As the domestic power demand stayed low in the first quarter of 2013,
    nationwide thermal power generation saw only a slight increase of 0.87%
    for the first quarter of 2013, with negative growth in southeast coastal
    areas and modest growth in other regions. In Gansu and Yunnan, hydropower
    output increased considerably which affected the rate of growth in the
    thermal power sector. Since the Company's installed capacity is mainly
    fuelled by thermal power generators and distributed in southeast coastal
    areas, the electricity generated by the Company experienced decrease over
    the same period last year.
2.The Company has no cogenerating units in Hebei, Shanxi, Henan and Gansu.
    The increased cyclic non-operation of non-cogenerating units of the
    Company during the heating season had affected our output of electricity
    in these areas.

The power generation and electricity sold by each of the Company's domestic
power plants in the first quarter of 2013 are listed below (in billion kWh):

The accumulated power generation of Tuas Power Limited in Singapore accounted
for a market share of 20.5% in Singapore in the first quarter of 2013,
representing a decrease of 6.1 percentage points compared to the same period
last year.

In addition, the project on "replacing smaller generating units with large
generating units" at Zhejiang Huaneng Changxing Power Plant (which is
wholly-owned by the Company) (the "Project") was recently approved by the
National Development and Reform Commission. The Project will be constructed
with two 660 MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired generating units. The dynamic
total investment of the Project is estimated to be approximately RMB5.662
billion, of which 20%, being the project capital, will be funded by the
Company by its internal fund. The remaining investment will be funded by bank
loans.

Moreover, Units No.3 (1,036 MW) and No.4 (1,036 MW) at Guangdong Huaneng
Haimen Power Plant (in which the Company owns 80% interest) has completed
trial run recently. In addition, there has been adjustment to the generation
capacity of certain generating units of the Company. To date, the Company's
total controlled generation capacity has increased to 65,959 MW, and
equity-based generation capacity has increased to 58,961 MW.

About the Company

The Company is one of China's largest listed power producers with controlled
generation capacity of 65,959 MW and equity-based generation capacity of
