China's power generation in the first 10-day period of July rose by 3 percent year on year, continuing the rebound in June, according to the power dispatch center of State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC).

Power consumption and generation resumed growth in June, putting an end to eight consecutive months of decline since last October.

Power consumption in June rose by 4.3 percent year on year, compared with a 2.57-percent fall in May, said China Electricity Council (CEC).

Power generation saw a year-on-year increase of 5.2 percent, compared to a 3.55-percent decline in May, according to National Bureau of Statistics.

Analysts said the June rebound was partly a result of increased industrial activity, especially in the secondary and the tertiary sectors, while high temperatures in late June also boosted consumption.

In spite of possible ensuing fluctuation, China's power consumption is expected to rise by around 3 percent this year, said Hu Zhaoguang, deputy head of Beijing Economic and Technological Research Institute of the SGCC, citing China Securities News.
