The China National Power Dispatching and Communication Center reported that China’s daily power production in the first ten days of June is the highest so far this year, state media reported. Driven by a recovery of heavy industrial production of cement, steel and iron, and coal, China generated 9.76 billion kilowatts of power, which is a decline of 0.17% from the same period last year. In May, China produced 250 million tons of coal, up 9.6% year-on-year, and 57.29 million tons of steel, up 7.4% on a yearly basis. China power generation has been in general decline since 2008, posting a 9.6% year-on-year decline in November, the biggest fall in a decade.
