Huaneng Power International, Inc. Power Generation Increases 32% in the First Three Quarters of 2010

Oct 13, 2010, 09:29 ET from Huaneng Power International, Inc.

BEIJING, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Huaneng Power International, Inc. ("HPI" or the "Company")(NYSE: HNP; HKEx: 902; SSE: 600011) is pleased to announce its power generation in the first three quarters of 2010.

According to the Company's preliminary statistics, as of 30 September 2010, the Company's total domestic power generation within China on consolidated basis amounted to 190.903 billion kWh, representing an increase of 32% over the same period last year. Accumulated on-grid electricity sold by the Company amounted to 179.635 billion kWh.

The increase in power generation of the Company was mainly attributable to the following reasons:

    1. the Company has increased its sales efforts, thereby grasping the
       growth trend of the national economy in 2010 and the favourable
       conditions for substantial increase in the national electricity demand,
       expanding various marketing channels and increasing power generation;

    2. under the impact of the global financial crisis, the national
       electricity demand for the first three quarters of 2009 was depressed.
       The base number of the power generation was relatively lower, resulting
       in a relatively higher growth in 2010 as compared to the same period of
       last year; and

    3. the electricity generation contributable by the new generating units.

    The power generation/on-grid electricity sold by each of the Company's
domestic power plants in the first three quarters of 2010 are listed below (in
billion kWh):
