China’s Clean-Energy Power Output Rises 48% in October
Electricity generated from clean energy in China rose 48 percent to 92.7 billion kilowatt hours in October from a year ago as installations grew.
In the year to October, electricity generated from clean- energy sources, including from hydro and nuclear plants, increased 26 percent to 810.2 billion kilowatt hours, the State Electricity Regulatory Commission said in a statement yesterday. That amounts to 20.4 percent of on-grid electricity, 3.6 percent higher from a year ago.
Power from wind farms surged 40 percent last month compared with the same period a year earlier, SERC said. The nation added 7.2 gigawatts of wind-power generation capacity in the first 10 months, raising the total to about 56 gigawatts.
