As of 31 December 2016, the Group’s controlled installed capacity of natural gas power in operation was 1,300.0MW with annual power generation of 4,780,172.6MWh, representing an increase of 355.2% when compared to last year. The increase in power generation was primarily due to the additional power contributed by the commencement of operation of Phase II of Guangdong Dongguan Project (with capacity of 940.0MW). From January to February 2016, two 9F generating units of Phase II of Guangdong Dongguan Natural Gas Power Generation Project commenced commercial operation. The two generating units were cogenerated heating electricity and cooling supply units with steamgas cycle. The gas power generating units were the largest installed capacity of SPIC, which were also the key construction project in Guangdong Province and Dongguan City. Phase II of Guangdong Dongguan Natural Gas Project is the segmentation strategy layout for top 5 clean energies (i.e. natural gas, waste-to-energy, wind power, photovoltaic power and hydropower) of the Group, aiming to achieve balanced development and effectively control of operational risks. Phase II of Dongguan Natural Gas Power Project of the Group comprises local and overseas technology and mainly focuses on transmission of heat, power and cooling to users in Dongcheng Science and Industrial Park, Dongguan in Guangdong. As at 31 December 2016, average utilisation hours of Phase II of Guangdong Dongguan Project were 4,293 hours, higher than the average utilisation hours of other power plants in Guangdong region. Currently, the natural gas power segment has become the important profit driver for the Group. During the year, the power generation of the segment accounted for 47.0% of the Group’s total power generation.

The current capacity under construction of the segment was 400.0MW (Guangdong Dongguan Lisha Island Project). The project has been included as one of the major construction projects of Dongguan City in 2016 and provincial level key projects. Currently, the project has been progressing according to planned schedules and is expected to commence operation at the end of 2017 to 2018. At the end of 2016, the Group’s Sanhe Natural Gas Distributed Energy Project (with installed capacity of 800.0MW) in Jiangsu Hongze obtained a reply of thermal power co-generation plan from the Provincial Energy Bureau and is awaiting approval.
