Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Jiyuan power station, totaling 300 MW, were brought online in 2005. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]


Guodian is currently planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 700 MW.[2][3]

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

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location may be on hold or cancelled.

Specifically, in March 2016 China's NEA suspended new approvals in 13 provinces and regions through 2019. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.


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.[4][5] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[6]
