New Delhi: Record breaking heat is currently prevailing in China. In the month of June, all the heat records have been broken in many cities of northern China. Due to the continuous rise in temperature, the power consumption has increased a lot. For this reason, emergency situations have happened here. To deal with any such situation, the key officials here conducted a mock emergency drill. China is troubled by the rising temperature since the month of April. Since then, the temperature is higher than normal here.
Weather experts have predicted worse conditions in China in the coming times, which may even surpass last year’s heat. Let us tell you that last year there was severe heat in China for more than two months. According to state media, the temperature in Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei province, crossed 40 degrees Celsius on Thursday. It has become the first provincial capital in China where the temperature has crossed 40 degree Celsius.
According to the Chinese news media CCTV, the heat has broken all records in June in Zhangjiakou and Chengde of Hebei province. The temperature is also increasing continuously in the capital Beijing. Beijing recorded its hottest day of June on Saturday. A temperature of 39.4 degree Celsius was recorded here. On Friday, the Central Meteorological Administration said the temperature in Beijing could reach 40 degrees on Saturday.
Due to the ever-increasing heat in China, the power grid operators here have already been put on high alert. In some cities in the south, firms and people have been asked to use less electricity. China’s National Energy Administration on Thursday conducted a mock emergency drill on the state grid’s East China network. This drill was about creating an early warning and power management system on the increase in power demand.
Talking about the East China Regional Grid, which supplies electricity to the economically major cities of China, Shanghai and Hangzhou. This summer’s electricity consumption is expected to top 397 gigawatts. According to the 2021 figures of the International Renewable Energy Agency, this is more than the total power generation capacity of Japan. Significantly, in May last month, the hottest day in a century was recorded in Shanghai. On Thursday, Shanghai’s state-owned energy and water companies issued measures to meet the electricity and water demands of the summer season. Their purpose was to prevent the possible shortage of electricity and water in the country last year.
