Beijing Yire power station was a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 400 MW. The plant was completed in 1999, and was owned by Shenhua and CLP Group. It was retired in 2015.[1]


On August 28 2017, China's State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) announced that China Guodian Corporation and Shenhua Group will be jointly restructured. Shenhua Group will become China National Energy Investment Group and will absorb China Guodian Corporation. It will be the largest power company in the world by installed capacity, as well as the world's largest coal producer.[2][3] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[4]
