Coal is about industrial production, and it is more about heating the people.

However, in recent times, coal prices have risen rapidly, hitting record highs in succession. The National Development and Reform Commission called it "completely divorced from the fundamentals of supply and demand" and "still showing a trend of further irrational increases."

Just this week, multiple departments worked together to take a variety of intervention measures in accordance with the law to promote the return of coal prices to a reasonable range.

  The reporter learned from China Southern Power Grid on October 22 that the five provinces and autonomous regions of Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan, Guizhou, and Hainan will realize that all coal-fired electricity will be traded in the electricity market starting from November, and market-based electricity prices will fluctuate up and down.

  Lu Yong, deputy general manager of the Planning and Finance Department of China Southern Power Grid: Promoting all coal-fired power and all industrial and commercial power to enter the market for market transactions is conducive to straightening out the price mechanism of coal power and alleviating the current power supply shortage.

The National Development and Reform Commission held three seminars in a row

  The recent rapid increase in coal prices has not only greatly increased the production costs of downstream industries, but also has an adverse impact on the guarantee of energy supply such as power in winter and the warmth of the people through the winter.

To this end, a number of relevant departments have intensively shot this week:

Consolidate local responsibilities and ensure that the prices of civil gas and heating are basically stable.

We will do a good job in the pre-plan for "suppressing non-residents", reasonably control the lighting of the city's night scenes, and promote energy conservation.

  On October 20, the China Securities Regulatory Commission issued an announcement on its official website in the evening, stating: In order to further serve to ensure the supply and price stability of bulk commodities and strengthen the supervision of the futures market, the China Securities Regulatory Commission will instruct exchanges to increase handling fee standards, tighten transaction limits, and study and implement expanded delivery.
