According to the official new media platform of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, the “new state-owned Xiaoxin” WeChat public account news, the total social power consumption in 2018 was 684.9 billion kWh, an increase of 8.5% year-on-year, and the growth rate hit a new high in 7 years.
With the national data, how much electricity did each province (autonomous region and municipality) use each year?
In 2018, who is the national king of electricity? Who is the power consumption TOP 10?
Here is a national electricity map to find your hometown!

Distant leading group
In 2018, across the country, the entire society's electricity consumption exceeded 600 billion kWh mark, there are three provinces, namely Guangdong, Jiangsu and Shandong!
600 billion kWh is the concept of 啥?
600 billion kWh is equivalent to the total annual power generation of six Three Gorges power stations. It can supply 100 watts of incandescent lamps for 700 million years, allowing a high-speed rail to travel to and from the Earth and the Sun 70 times.
It is predicted that the national per capita electricity consumption will reach 5,000 kWh in 2020, which is close to the level of moderately developed countries. Xiaoxin roughly estimated that the above three provinces should exceed the electricity consumption level of medium-developed countries.
Throughout the country, in 2018, 11 provinces have exceeded 200 billion kWh of electricity consumption. It is said that electricity consumption is a barometer of the economy and an important index for evaluating the macro economy. Look, most of the provinces with thick and thin hair groups have a good economic development momentum, and many of them are among the best in the national GDP rankings.
Compared with the previous year, the team that broke through 200 billion kWh has grown stronger. In 2018, Shanxi, Anhui and Hubei have become new friends.
In addition, Inner Mongolia's total wind power consumption in 2018 was the first in the country, and it became the most “pull” area in the country.
In this group, the three municipalities directly under the Central Government of Beijing, Shanghai, and Chongqing have crossed the 100 billion mark with the power of one city, which is amazing!
In other provinces, such as Guizhou, the growth rate of electricity consumption far exceeds the growth of GDP. Thanks to the rapid development of emerging industries such as big data, it has made great contributions to electricity consumption.
A small-eyed partner can certainly find a feature – some provinces with small populations are energy sources. They deliver a steady stream of clean energy to the East Central region.
In 2018, the electricity consumption of the whole society has grown rapidly, and the speed of electric energy replacement in the whole society is not far behind. In 2018, China's total energy replacement capacity in the whole society increased by 23% compared with the previous year.
With the smooth operation of China's economy, transformation and upgrading, kinetic energy conversion and continuous optimization of energy structure, in the new year, our central enterprises will go all out to do a good job of power supply security and lay a smooth road for China's economic development.
The above data is subject to the official data released by the governments of the provinces (municipalities, autonomous regions). Non-continental data is not available.
