Inner Mongolia in North China, now the country’s second-largest coal mining region after Shanxi in North China too and with the most competitive power charges, mulls blocking any new industrial projects including steel, coke, ferroalloys, non-ultra-high electrode graphite and aluminium starting 2021, aiming to rein in on the region’s power consumption mainly by such industrial plants, according to a draft by its Development and Reform Committee.
The region was named and shamed by China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) in an investigation report on February 2 as the only one of the 30 regions and provinces under the review that has failed to hit the local power consumption and intensity control targets for 2019.
