Background on Project

CPI Mengxi Energy Tu Youqi power station is a proposed 2 x 1,000 MW coal plant in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, proposed by China Power Investment (CPI).[1]

The plant received EIA approval from the provincial government in November 2015.[2]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

On March 17, 2016, China's National Energy Administration (NEA) released the Coal Bubble Alert System, dubbed the ‘traffic light’ system, to crack down on the growing coal power overcapacity crisis. Inner Mongolia was deemed a "red light" region, meaning no new coal projects should be permitted. Therefore any further developments at the power station appear to be on hold or cancelled.

For details, see China's 2016/2017 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

With no developments since 2015, the project appears to be cancelled.


In July 2015, China Power Investment Corporation (CPI) and State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) merged to become State Power Investment Corporation (国家电力投资集团), one of the five largest state-owned electricity producers in the People's Republic of China.[3]
