Antaibao Gangue power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Antaibao Gangue power station (中煤平朔安太堡低热值煤热电厂) is a proposed 700-megawatt (MW) waste coal-fired power plant in Shanxi Province, China.

Background on Project
Construction began in 2016.
Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects with a total capacity of over 100GW in 13 provinces, including Antaibao Gangue. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
2017: Expansion halted by government
In July 2017, the NEA released the "Guideline of Supply-Side Reform of the Coal Power Bubble". The Guideline included a draft list which slowed down or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling 107 GW. 114 coal units (65 GW) are ordered to slow down the construction progress during 2017 to 2020, and are not allowed to connect to the grid in 2017. In addition, 71 coal units (42 GW) were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. The list partly overlapped with the projects listed in the January NEA letter to 13 provinces.

2021: Project revived
In January 2021 the project was revived and construction resumed.
