China Wind Power Up 11%, Solar Power Up 8% and Nuclear Up 5% in 2020

Nuclear Energy generation increased 5% in 2020 over 2019. China’s nuclear energy production was 331 TWh for the first 11 months of 2020. China generated 349 TWh in 2019 and is on track to generate 367 TWh in 2020.

Hydro power in China was up 5% over 2019.

China’s 2019 power generation figures from the World Nuclear association seem slightly mismatching the China National bureau of Statistics for solar power.

China’s energy production was:

Type of Energy 2019 Generation 2020 Estimate
Hydro 1302 TWh (18%) 1366 TWh
Nuclear 349 TWh (5%) 367 TWh
Wind 406 TWh (6%) 413 TWh
Solar 117 TWh (3%) 141 TWh.

China National Bureau of Statistics reported:
* China’s wind power is up 11% over 2019
* China’s Solar power was up 8% over 2019
* China nuclear and hydro were each up about 5%.
