  1. China Axes Plans to Build 85 Coal Plants

    By Editors of Power Engineering China’s National Energy Administration has suspended plans to build 85 new coal plants. The organization said the move was necessary to meet the government’s coal capacity target, the Independent reported. The Chinese government had set a cap on coal generation of 1,110 GW. Should the 85 new plants have been constructed, that would have pushed China’s coal generation to 1,250 GW. This move comes after the NEA announced it will spend 2.5 trillion yuan, or $361 billion, over the next three years on new power generation from renewable sources. Renewable sources will now account for half of all new electricity generation through 2020.
