China's power use may rise mildly in 2016

Updated: 2016-02-03 13:31

China's electricity consumption is likely to maintain mild growth in 2016 as the economy weans off reliance on energy-intensive industries.

The China Electricity Council (CEC) said in a report Tuesday that the increase in nationwide power use will be between 1 and 2 percent this year, slightly higher than 0.5 percent registered in 2015.

The increase will be mainly attributed to robust emerging and service sectors, as well as residential power consumption, the report said.

China has bid farewell to the period of double-digit growth for power use as it undergoes economic transformation. The government is downsizing traditional heavy industries and encouraging high-tech new ones.

The CEC expects China to install 100 gigawatt of power capacity in 2016 with more than half comprised of non-fossil energy.
