Background on Project

According to a 2011 report by World Resources Institute, China Guodian planned to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.[1]

However, as of 2015 there appear to be no reports of further activity to develop those plans, and they may have been shelved or abandoned.


On August 28 2017, China's State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) announced that China Guodian Corporation and Shenhua Group will be jointly restructured. Shenhua Group will become China National Energy Investment Group and will absorb China Guodian Corporation. It will be the largest power company in the world by installed capacity, as well as the world's largest coal producer.[2][3] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[4]
