China produced more than 3.5 billion tons of raw coal in 2011, up nearly 9 percent from the previous year, according to information from a national coal working conference.

The coal industry has helped strike a balance between the country's energy supply and demand, marking a good start to the social and economic development during the 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-2015), said Liu Tienan, head of the National Energy Administration.

It was noted at the conference that greater efforts should be made to maintain a balance between supply and demand, ensure a stable coal market, and properly control coal consumption, in order to promote industrial restructuring and the transformation of the country’s economic growth model.

Furthermore, a reasonable plan should be made to increase energy efficiency by controlling the total energy consumption and energy intensity per unit of GDP.
