Heatwave in China, electricity demand at record high, blackout-like conditions in many places
Taipei, July 27 (SO News/Agency) The intense heat that has been going on in China for the past several days has brought the electricity demand to a record level in some areas and has caused blackouts. Meanwhile, the government has warned that the problem of high temperatures is expected to continue for at least another week. According to a media report, temperatures in more than 300 cities were expected to rise above 35 degrees Celsius on Tuesday. China Southern Power Grid Co. said Monday’s use was more than 3 percent of last year’s peak load, The Guardian reported.
The Guangdong region’s power grid also reached a record high of 142mkWh, an increase of 4.89% over last year’s peak load. Blackouts were reported in the regional capital Guangzhou, where temperatures were recorded above 37 degrees Celsius throughout the week, including maximums of 40 degrees Celsius on Sunday and Monday. Yang Lin, manager of the company’s dispatching office, said that once the temperature in Guangzhou exceeded 35 degrees Celsius, each additional degree would mean a uniform load increase of 3M to 5MkW. The company said it was analyzing the machines to prevent overheating and breakdowns, and efforts were being made to maintain power supplies.
Meanwhile, The Guardian reported that there have been widespread blackouts in China in recent years. It has wreaked havoc across China with extreme temperatures, increased demand for electricity and shortages of coal, which is still China’s main source of energy.
