|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
The Jingneng Zuoyun Madaotou power station (京能山西京同热电公司左云马道头低热值煤发电厂) is a proposed 700-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Shanxi province, China.
With no developments since 2014, the project appears to be cancelled.

Background on Plant
2017: Plant 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.
