This year, many places in China "power shortage" ahead of schedule, the next step will be high power industry to implement the "power limit" measures.
In the midsummer, the electricity shortage did not come. In the past two months, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Anhui and other provinces have suffered from off-season power shortages, and some areas have even begun to pull the switch to limit electricity.
Baosteel has been confirmed that the power sector will impose certain restrictions on its Shanghai production base during the peak period from June to September, Xinhua reported.
With the advent of power shortage in the off-season, the next high power industry will be "Power Limited".
Frequent off-season power shortage
At present, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Hunan, Chongqing and other places have emerged before the summer peak off-season power shortages. China's electricity consumption rose 11.2% in April from a year earlier to 376.8 billion kilowatt-hours, down 2.2 percentage points from March and 3.1% from a year earlier, according to data released by the State Energy Administration on the 14th.
High energy consumption industry is the main cause of "electricity shortage".
According to the Securities Times, according to the State Energy Administration, China's total social electricity consumption in the first quarter totaled 1091.1 billion kWh, up 12.7% year on year. Among them, the electricity consumption of the whole society during the peak winter season in March and January is basically the same, approaching the peak summer electricity consumption in July and August last year.
The "high contribution" to this is the high energy consuming industry. In the first quarter of 2010, the electricity consumption of chemical, building materials, steel smelting and non-ferrous metal smelting industries totaled 351.2 billion kilowatt-hours, accounting for 32.2% of the total electricity consumption in the whole society, down 0.4 percentage points from the same period last year.
Baosteel Shanghai base will be limited by electricity in 6-9 months.
China's crude steel production hit a new record high in April, but the next step will be to encounter restrictions on high-power companies across the country, Xinhua reported. Baosteel has been confirmed that during the peak period from June to September, the power sector will implement certain power restriction measures in its Shanghai production base.
According to the latest statistics released by Xinmin. com, China's crude steel output reached 59.03 million tons in April, an increase of 7.1% over the same period last year, and the daily average output reached 1.968 million tons, a record high. Meanwhile, exports of steel (4840,10.00,0.21%) decreased by 140 thousand tons in April. According to the information collected from various channels, the shortage of electricity in many places in China is ahead of schedule this year, and the next step is to implement the "power limit" measures in the high-power industry.
Spread to oil?
Is oil shortage following the power shortage?
According to the 21st Century Economic Report, a person in charge of Sinopec said that according to the experience before 2005, the shortage of electricity will inevitably be followed by oil shortage.
It is true that summer is the traditional peak season for oil supply in China. On May 13, the National Development and Reform Commission issued a "Development and Reform Power  132" text, explicitly ordering the near future strict control of the export of refined oil, except for Hong Kong and Macao, in principle suspended arrangements for diesel exports.
