China’s electricity consumption leaped 6.8 percent in April

China’s electricity consumption climbed 6.8 percent to 416.5 billion kWh in April from a year earlier, the National Energy Administration (NEA) reported.

In the first four months of 2013, China consumed a total of 1.63 trillion kWh of electricity, a rise of 4.9 percent compared to a year ago, according to NEA.

  • The service industry was responsible for the highest rise, up 9.1 percent from last year, the report said.
  • China commissioned 18.72 million kilowatts of additional production capacity in the first four months of this year, including 11 million kW of thermal power and 3.97 million kW of hydro-power.

“China’s first-quarter economic growth unexpectedly slowed to 7.7 percent from 7.9 percent during the final quarter of 2012, sapping expectations for a strong rebound.”
