Abstract

In China, the State Power Corporation (SPC) dominated theelectric power sector. Our results from the data envelopmentanalysis (DEA) approach show that the total factor productivity(TFP) growth between 1995 and 2000 is 2.1 percent per yearon average. Technological change accounts for almost all theTFP growth. Municipalities and coastal provinces have achievedhigher technical efficiency and TFP growth during the periodunder study. Fuel efficiency and capacity utilization rate aresignificant factors affecting technical efficiency of powergeneration. Provinces and autonomous regions not dominated bySPC have achieved higher levels of technical efficiency.
