Electricity consumption growth in the first five months, industrial and manufacturing electricity consumption slowed down
On the 21st, the China Electricity Council (CEC) revealed that from January to May, the growth rate of social electricity consumption increased year-on-year, and the growth rate of electricity consumption in the month fell from the previous month; the growth rate of electricity consumption in industry and manufacturing slowed down, manufacturing Daily average electricity consumption increased year-on-year.
In terms of provinces, from January to May, in addition to Gansu and Qinghai, the electricity consumption of all provinces in the country has achieved positive growth. Among them, the provinces with higher electricity consumption growth rate than the national average (4.9%) include: Tibet, Inner Mongolia, Guangxi, Hubei, Xinjiang, Anhui, Sichuan, Hainan, Shanxi, Jiangxi, Guizhou, Hebei, Hunan, Ningxia, Chongqing and Liaoning.
