The Chinese government has allowed China's coal power plants to run at full capacity to meet energy demands even as the country has pledged to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and touted the ongoing Winter Olympics 2022 as more environmentally friendly.

China's state-run news agency reported that "Coal supply will be increased, and coal-fired power plants will be supported in running at full capacity and generating more electricity, so as to meet the electricity needs for production and residential consumption."
