Report summary

The 13th five year plan for the power industry aims to set the stage for a cleaner more efficient and sustained power sector. Key objectives are to rationalise coal fired overbuild add more peaking plants to enhance system flexibility and boost renewables penetration and cut curtailments. Despite the ambitious proposals we believe the plan could be challenging to implement and some targets won t be met. Coal power will slow its capacity build but generators will face growing financial hardship. Gas power will play a bigger role and claim more generation share as government encouragement and cheap LNG open up more opportunities. The pace of new builds in conventional hydro power will slow while pumped storage will be a bright spot to serve greater peak shaving demand. Renewables will continue to lead capacity growth but generation is likely to fall short of targets.
