Power shortages across China force dozens of suppliers to halt production

Power shortages across China force dozens of suppliers to halt production

Dozens of energy-intensive industries were forced to either reduce or shut down plant operations in multiple provinces across China over the past few days as authorities started to enforce dual-control policies to limit energy consumption in the country. Among the affected sectors — since the beginning of the nationwide crackdown in mid-September — were industries with high energy consumption, ranging from petrochemicals and textile printing to aluminum production. So far, Everstream Analytics has tracked power-related disruptions at more than 60 companies, a list that is likely to expand over the coming days. 

As China prepares for Golden Week, a weeklong national holiday, the risk of extended shutdowns and further delivery delays of key industrial goods is heightened.
