Shanxi uses big data of electric power to monitor coal production and to help ensure energy supply
TAIYUAN, China, July 28, 2022 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

Coal is the "ballast stone" for the current energy supply. In view of the 
difficulties of coal production verification and supervision, Shanxi, a major 
coal-producing province, relying on the Energy Big Data Center, actively 
researches the relationship between electricity consumption and coal production 
and innovatively develops energy big data products of "converting coal into 
electricity". And it has been put into operation in Luliang City.

By collecting the data of output, energy consumption, electricity consumption 
and other data of 251 coal enterprises, the coal output monitoring model of 
"converting coal into electricity" can monitor the production status of 
enterprises in real time. Once the coal mine has abnormal energy consumption, 
the system will send out low-yield early-warning information in time. Through 
government-enterprise cooperation, a closed-loop working mechanism for the 
whole process of on-site inspection, rectification and feedback has been 
established locally to help increase coal production and ensure supply.

Since the operation of "converting coal into electricity" on May 10, the State 
Grid Shanxi Electric Power Company has provided a total of 247 monitoring and 
analysis reports and issued 98 output early-warning messages. After on-site 
inspection and rectification by the Luliang Energy Bureau, the coal output in 
Luliang City increased by 10% year-on-year.

In the next step, the State Grid Shanxi Electric Power Company will further 
strengthen government-enterprise cooperation, refine the classification of coal 
production enterprises and the collection of electricity data in each process 
link, optimize the coal production monitoring and analysis model algorithm, and 
expand application scenarios. At the same time, it will assist the government 
to implement precise policies in terms of risk monitoring and dual control of 
energy consumption, and help enterprises reduce costs and increase efficiency 
in terms of management and control of energy consumption and analysis and 
processing of abnormal electricity consumption.
