The Chinese energy market - like many other sectors of the country's economy - is seeing strong growth, due to increasing electricity consumption1 (up 7.5% in 2013) which is being driven by the country's economic expansion. China has to boost its electricity generation capacity to meet this demand. The country's installed generating capacity increased by 9.5% in 2013 to a total of 1247 GW.
