La produzione giornaliera di carbone in Cina a luglio è aumentata del 16% rispetto a un anno prima, in seguito all’invito di Pechino ai minatori di garantire un’offerta sufficiente durante la stagione di picco della domanda estiva. Il mese scorso il Paese ha prodotto 372.66 milioni di tonnellate di carbone, pari a 12.02 milioni di tonnellate al giorno, secondo i dati forniti lunedì dall’Ufficio nazionale di statistica (NBS).

Questo dato si confronta con i 10.13 milioni di tonnellate al giorno prodotti nel luglio 2021 e con i 12.64 milioni di tonnellate di giugno.

Nel periodo gennaio-luglio, la produzione di carbone è stata superiore del 12% rispetto all’anno precedente, con 2.56 miliardi di tonnellate.

Il consumo medio giornaliero di carbone nelle principali regioni costiere è stato superiore a 2.3 milioni di tonnellate all’inizio di agosto, circa il 6% in più rispetto allo stesso periodo dello scorso anno, secondo i dati di Sxcoal. Alcune regioni, tra cui le città dei poli manifatturieri di Zhejiang e Jiangsu, hanno effettuato blackout a rotazione nelle fabbriche locali per proteggere le forniture di elettricità alle utenze residenziali nei momenti di picco della domanda.

I dati di lunedì hanno anche mostrato che la produzione di energia elettrica in Cina nel mese di luglio è aumentata del 4.5% rispetto a un anno fa, raggiungendo 805,9 miliardi di chilowattora, segnando la più rapida crescita su base annua dal settembre 2021. Si prevede che le temperature nel nord della Cina scenderanno alla fine di agosto, il che dovrebbe ridurre la domanda di carbone per la produzione di energia.

«China’s daily coal output in July surged 16% from a year earlier following Beijing’s call for miners to ensure sufficient supply during the peak summer demand season. The country produced 372.66 million tonnes of coal last month, equivalent to 12.02 million tonnes per day, data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed on Monday.

This compares with the 10.13 million tonnes per day produced in July 2021 and the 12.64 million tonnes in June.

Over the January-July period, coal production was 12% higher than a year earlier at 2.56 billion tonnes.»

«Average daily coal consumption in major coastal regions was above 2.3 million tonnes in early August, about 6% higher than the same period last year, according to data from Sxcoal. Some regions, including cities in the manufacturing hubs of Zhejiang and Jiangsu, have carried out rolling blackouts at local factories to protect electricity supplies to residential users at times of peak demand»

«Monday’s data also showed China’s power generation in July rose 4.5% from a year ago to 805.9 billion kilowatt-hours, marking the fastest year-on-year growth since September 2021. Temperatures in northern China are forecast to fall in late August, which should reduce demand for coal for power generation.»

Singapore, Aug 15 (Reuters) – China’s daily coal output in July surged 16% from a year earlier following Beijing’s call for miners to ensure sufficient supply during the peak summer demand season.

The country produced 372.66 million tonnes of coal last month, equivalent to 12.02 million tonnes per day, data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed on Monday.

This compares with the 10.13 million tonnes per day produced in July 2021 and the 12.64 million tonnes in June.

Over the January-July period, coal production was 12% higher than a year earlier at 2.56 billion tonnes.

The central government has held several meetings in recent weeks at which it reiterated its determination to avoid power rationing during the summer, when demand for air conditioning spikes. It asked coal miners to boost output and fulfill term-contracts with power utilities.

Average daily coal consumption in major coastal regions was above 2.3 million tonnes in early August, about 6% higher than the same period last year, according to data from Sxcoal.

Some regions, including cities in the manufacturing hubs of Zhejiang and Jiangsu, have carried out rolling blackouts at local factories to protect electricity supplies to residential users at times of peak demand.

Monday’s data also showed China’s power generation in July rose 4.5% from a year ago to 805.9 billion kilowatt-hours, marking the fastest year-on-year growth since September 2021.

Power demand has been subdued since March as stringent COVID-19 restrictions have curbed industrial activity.

However, analysts and market participants expect coal output could be curtailed by intensifying safety checks following a fatal mining accident in the major coal mining hub of Shanxi in early August.

Temperatures in northern China are forecast to fall in late August, which should reduce demand for coal for power generation.
