China’s cumulative installed wind power capacity grew to 151 GW through March, and generation for the first quarter of 2017 was up by 36% year-on-year to 68.7 billion kWh.
The National Energy Administration (NEA) said Tuesday wind power curtailment improved a bit to 13.5 billion kWh in the three months, which is by 5.7 billion kWh below the curtailment rate a year ago.
In the quarter, the provinces of Qinghai, Shaanxi, Henan and Hebei added the most wind power capacity with 590 MW, 410 MW, 310 MW and 300 MW of new wind farms, respectively.
