China is the 2nd biggest power consumption country and consists of the largest power grid system. Its total installed capacity is expected to reach 1,437GW by 2015, with an average annual growth of 8.4% between 2011 and 2015. China has debuted its large-scale power grid construction and the total investment in the coming 10 years will reach 4 trillion.

2011-2015 is a stage for power grid construction in which to speed up the pace of ultra-high voltage power grid construction and city rural power transmission, setting a system for running, monitoring and interaction of the smart grid. Critical technologies and equipment and applications are further explored and widely adopted. The ultra-high voltage and smart grid construction in the 12th Five Year Plan will precipitate 88% wide coverage of power grid in China by 2015, and support the connection of 90 million KW wind energy and 8 million KW solar energy under a strong smart grid.
