China extends coal to gas, electricity switch to 35 cities in 2018

In 2018, China extended its coal to gas and coal to electricity program from 12 to 35 cities from the previous year as a part of the country's six-year fight against pollution, Reuters reported March 11, citing Environment Minister Li Ganjie.

Li said China has installed ultra-low emissions technology at over 80% of the country's total coal-powered plant capacity.

Switching the country's winter heating program, which uses approximately 400 million tonnes of coal per year, to natural gas and electricity plays a major role in China's efforts aimed at controlling pollution, according to the report.

The number of households that switched from coal to gas and electricity rose from 4 million a year in 2017 to 4.8 million in 2018.

Earlier, it was reported that China's share of thermal coal in its energy mix dropped to 59% in 2018, from 68.5% in 2012.
