The widespread power outages in China last year that grabbed international headlines might have been a blessing in disguise in one sense, as they prompted Beijing to make early preparations to avoid the same embarrassing crisis this year. China’s efforts to ensure energy sufficiency — which began even before the Ukraine crisis — are now paying off as the world grapples with record-high fuel prices. While countries like India and Australia are struggling with power emergencies or outages due either to heat waves, gas shortages or coal plant shutdowns, China has so far this year managed to avoid any major energy crunches. Judging from official coal stockpile and power supply data, China looks better prepared to weather the current summer peak demand season without blacking out.
