Constant cuts in the electricity grid force Chinese to resort to diesel generators

In China, constant energy supply problems are causing the purchase of diesel generators, according to the “Financial Times” news this Tuesday. Generator producers are taking more and more orders from customers, as explained by a manager of an electricity company in Xantum province, eastern China, which ran out of generators it had to sell after the run in September to alternatives to electrical network.

Quoted by the British newspaper, she detailed: “I have to tell my customers that it can take 15 to 20 days to deliver a generator, and we also have to wait for the arrival of important components”. An aluminum producer in the city of Dongguam, in Guangzhou province, said, in turn, that it depended on three generators to keep it running and that, in the highly industrialized region of the Pearl River Delta, the demand for generators was “enormous “.

The president of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in South China, Klaus Zenkel, told the “Financial Times” that many associates were depending on diesel electricity generation to work.

Since the energy crisis began, factories have seen their production reduced, shutting down for a few days each week, and employees were asked to adopt rationing measures such as avoiding the use of air conditioners in offices, the newspaper details. China has pledged to reduce carbon emissions from 2030 onwards, the year in which they expect them to reach their peak, and carbon neutrality in 2060.
