[UKPRwire, Fri Feb 06 2015] Our Country Risk team has slightly upgraded our 2015 real GDP growth forecast for China, but our outlook for the power sector remains relatively stable. This is because we continue to expect growth in electricity generation and consumption to slowdown in 2015. In terms of electricity generation, the country's growing pollution woes have prompted the central and state-level governments to try and reduce coal-fired generation while encouraging cleaner and costlier alternatives, as reflected in a revised energy strategy that was published by the State Council in November 2014. We note, however, that t hese alternatives are generally not as scalable or have as short a turnaround time as coal projects. As a result, greater use of these alternatives will lead to a slowdown in generation growth. On the consumption end, we believe that the hangover effects of China's economic stimulus are yet to be felt, and cooling credit growth is likely to reveal these effects over the coming quarters.

In terms of fuel mix, conventional thermal sources play a key role and are expected to continue to dominate electricity generation over the coming years, as many projects under construction or planned will use coal or gas and as Chinese efforts in prospecting and exploiting conventional oil and gas resources are set to increase. While other sources of power will play increasingly important roles, China will remain reliant on coal for its power generation over the next decade. Energy poverty is a key concern in the country and coal will remain the only realistic option for providing cheap and abundant energy for the local population over the medium term. Yet, rising coal prices are once again a key threat to the profitability of power generation companies operating in the domestic segment and Chinese utilities have placed collective pressure on the government to moderate proposed restrictions on imported coal, highlighting the difficulties China has in balancing the...
