Huaneng Power International, Inc. -- Power Generation Within China Increases by 5.32% for the First Half Year of 2015

Jul 15, 2015, 10:03 ET from Huaneng Power International, Inc.

BEIJING, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Huaneng Power International, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE: HNP; HKEx: 902; SSE: 600011) today announced that its power generation for the first half year of 2015.

According to the Company's preliminary statistics, as of 30 June 2015, the Company's total power generation by the power plants within China on consolidated basis amounted to 159.816 billion kWh, representing an increase of 5.32% over the same period last year. Total electricity sold by the Company amounted to 150.653 billion kWh, representing an increase of 4.95% over the same period last year. The increase in power generation of the Company was mainly attributable to the acquisition of power plants from its parent company in 2014 and the generation units which have been recently put into operation.

The decrease in the power generation output of some power plants as compared to the same period of last year was attributable to the following major reasons: Firstly, in the first half of 2015, the economy in China continued to grow slowly. With the deepening of the country's economic restructuring, the growth in power consumption nationwide had declined, and the power generation and the utilization hour decreased. Secondly, the commencement of operation of a number of the ultra-high voltage west-to-east power transmission lines in China reduced the power generation market of thermal power generating units in the southeast coastal regions where a high proportion of thermal power generating units of the Company are located. Thirdly, since the summer this year, the temperature in the southern part of China remained low, and hence the cooling load decreased, the output in hydro-power generation increased and the output of thermal power generation decreased. Fourthly, the output from the thermal power generating units in Liaoning, Fujian and Zhejiang was affected by the commencement in the operation of large-scaled nuclear power plants in these provinces.

The power generation and electricity sold by each of the Company's domestic power plants for the first half year of 2015 are listed below (in billion kWh):
