Since the launch of the construction of the electricity spot market in 2017, China has made positive progress in the construction of electricity spot market, and the spot market model suitable for China's national conditions has gradually taken shape under the unified guidance of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and China National Energy Administration (Chine NEA) and with the organization and coordination of local government competent authorities as well as the great efforts from all relevant parties. Among them, the first batch of spot pilot provinces have carried out multiple rounds of trial settlement operation, and the second batch has been actively and steadily promoting their market construction. As a pioneer in the energy revolution, Shanxi Province, among the first batch of provinces carrying out spot market pilot construction, has been in steady trial operation for more than one and a half years, and has made outstanding achievements in electricity market reform.
