EastRussia Bulletin: Russia Increases Electricity Supplies to China

EastRussia Bulletin: Russia Increases Electricity Supplies to China

Since October, Russia has tripled the supply of electricity to China via the 500 kW power transmission line Amurskaya - Heihe (from 5 to 16 hours a day). The increase in supplies is associated with an energy shortage in the PRC, according to the current issue of the EastRussia bulletin.

Energy is supplied to the three northeastern provinces of the PRC - Heilongjiang, Liaoning and Jilin. Earlier, the Chinese government turned to Inter RAO with a request to increase supplies due to the energy shortage resulting from a shortage of coal for thermal power plants, the closure of mines, rising fuel prices and transportation problems (the PRC restricts the acceptance of goods at land border crossings due to pandemic). At the same time, in January-August alone, the demand for electricity in China increased by 13,8%, to 5,5 trillion kWh.

Currently, about 3 billion kWh per year are supplied to China from the Amur Region under a long-term contract. There is a technical possibility of supplying 6-7 billion kWh per year, which is not enough to completely cover the needs of the PRC.
