Powering China’s Economy Takes More and More Electricity
China’s electricity consumption is expected to rise 8.5% this year, picking up from last year’s growth rate of 6.6% despite a slowdown in economic growth, the State Grid Energy Research Institute said in a report.
The report released over the weekend attributed the pickup in electricity consumption, a key barometer of economic activity, to factors including Beijing’s strategy to accelerate rural revitalization and revamp the countryside’s power grid.
