In 2009, in response to the international financial crisis and complicated operating situation, the management and all the staff of the Company worked closely to overcome difficulties and make progress, achieving the target of turning a loss into a gain and fulfilling the responsibility of supplying sufficient, reliable and clean electricity for the society. The Company also achieved new results in all aspects including safe production, operation management, energy saving, environmental protection, project development, capital operation and corporate governance. In Singapore, Tuas Power Ltd. recorded the best annual operating results since its incorporation despite of a complicated market environment, making contribution to the profit growth of the Company.

In 2009, the accumulated power generation of Tuas Power Ltd. accounted for a market share of 24.3% in Singapore, same with previous year.

In 2009, the coal supply condition in China was relatively complicated. The Company had reinforced communication and negotiation with major contract suppliers of the Company, thus maintained an efficient channel for major coal supply. At the same time, the Company increased procurement of imported coal. The Company actively utilized the available internal resources of Huaneng Group and took full advantage of the economy of scale and management strength, and therefore controlled fuel costs effectively. The unit fuel cost of the Company's domestic power plants was RMB215.73 per MWh in 2009, representing a decrease of 13.50% from the previous year.

The Company highly values energy saving and environmental protection. By the end of 2009, all the operating coal-fired generating units have been installed with flue-gas desulphurization facilities. In 2009, the average equivalent availability ratio of the Company's domestic power plants was 91.95%. The average coal consumption rate for the power generated company-wide was 301.18 gram/kWh, 5.47 gram/kWh lower than that of the previous year. The average coal consumption rate for power sold was 320.10 gram/kWh, representing a decrease of 5.84 gram/kWh compared to the same period last year and 21.9 gram/kWh lower than the average level of the nation. The weighted average house consumption rate was 5.25%. The technological and economic indicators of the Company are maintained at a leading level in the PRC.

In 2009, the construction projects of the Company progressed smoothly. The newly commissioned generation capacity over the year was 5,832 MW. Unit 5 and Unit 6 (two 600MW coal-fired generating units) at Huaneng Gansu Pingliang Power Plant had completed the 168-hour trial run in February and March 2010, respectively. Besides, certain generating units of the Company were closed and had undergone capacity expansion and renovation.

On 15 January 2010, the Board of Directors approved the scheme for new issue of A Shares and the new issue of H Shares, which was estimated to raise proceeds of RMB10.3 billion. This non-public offering of the Company will be the first equity financing since the listing of the Company's A shares in 2001. The proposed issue has been approved at the general meeting and at the respective class meetings of the Company's shareholders as well as by the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.
