Last month, China's biggest coal-burning plant, a 4000-megawatt complex built at a cost of $US2.1billion ($A2.4 billion), started supplying electricity to energy-hungry factories and cities on the east coast.
The official China Electricity Council said earlier this year that 90,000 megawatts of coal-fired generating capacity the equivalent of 90 nuclear power stations had been added to the national grid in 2006 alone. This staggering figure may well include some double counting.
