Chapter

Abstract

China has the world’s largest installed electricity sector: generation capacity reached 1.6 TW in 2016. A new round of electricity market reform started in 2015, aiming to improve resource allocation efficiency, and ensure that demand is met in a safe, clean and reliable way. This chapter provides a structured map of China’s current power sector, including major stakeholders, their roles, and how they interact with each other. How they will be affected by the current reforms is also discussed. This chapter also explains the current electricity tariff system and how it might change in the coming decade under the reform proposals. The chapter ends by highlighting challenges and opportunities.

Keywords
