Energy production capacity, output ranking among highest in the country
In 2019, the output of raw coal in the region was 1.09 million metric tons, an increase of 10.1 percent over the previous year and coke production was 36.772 million tons, an increase of 7.4 percent. Power total generation capacity was 549.51 billion kilowatt hours, an increase of 10.8 percent -- of which wind power generation was 66.58 billion kWh, an increase of 5.5 percent.
In 2018, Inner Mongolia’s coal-to-oil production capacity and coal-to-gas production capacity was 1.24 million tons and 1.73 billion cubic meters, respectively, accounting for 18 percent and 33.9 percent of the country's total.
In 2018, the production output of coal-to-liquid and gas reached 1.03 million tons and 1.57 billion cubic meters, respectively.
Supply-side structural reforms progressing smoothly
At the end of 2018, renewable energy generation and grid-connected installed capacity reached 40.59 million kW and generated electricity of 81.3 billion kWh, accounting for 33.1 percent and 16.3 percent of the total of the power generation industry in the region — an increase of 2.1 and 0.7 percentage points over the previous year.
In 2018, Inner Mongolia accelerated the elimination of backward coal production capacity, accumulated excess coal production capacity of 34.4 million tons and eliminated backward production capacity of coal power by 1.054 million kW.
Clean, efficient development of coal and coal power
In 2018, coal for the chemicals industry and coal for power generation accounted for 23.9 percent and 59.5 percent of the region's coal consumption, an increase of 1.3 percentage points and 7 percentage points from the previous year.
Inner Mongolia accelerated the implementation of ultra-low emissions and the energy-saving transformation of coal-fired power units, accumulatively completing ultra-low-emissions transformation of 59.42 million kW and energy-saving transformation of 21.11 million kW.
In 2018, the average coal consumption for the power supply dropped to 330.8 g / kWh, which was 8.5 g / kWh lower than that in 2012.
