Xifeng power station

From Global Energy Monitor

Xifeng power station (庆阳西峰热电) is a proposed 700-megawatt (MW) coal-fired CHP power plant in Gansu Province, China.

With no developments since the plant was permitted for construction in April 2016, plans for the plant appear to be cancelled.


The map below shows the location where the plant would be built in Xiaojin Town, Xifeng District, Qingyang Prefecture, Gansu Province.

Background on Project

Qingyang Xifeng Cogen Power is planning to build a coal-fired CHP power plant with a total planned capacity of 2 x 350 MW in Xifeng District, Qingyang City.[1]

The plant was initially sponsored by China Huaneng Gansu Energy Development Co.,[2][3] but later the sponsor shifted to Zhonglongjian Power Construction Co. The co-sponsors include Gansu Energy Group and Qingyang Energy & Chemical Group.[1]

The project received permit for construction in April 2016.[1]

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 appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

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.[4]

Xifeng power station Units 1-2 are among the halted coal-burning units,[4] and also appeared on an updated list of halted projects released in September 2017.[5]
