Powercuts in Asia: Proof you Need Diesel Generators in 2021

As we predicted in the last article, 2021 is going to be a year full of power shortages. Global trade has suffered major hits due to current events, and this in turn leads to a short supply of the essential materials needed to keep the lights on. Recently, serious powercuts have struck China and have slowly effected the Asian continent as a whole. Learn more about current events surrounding the powercut and how a bespoke power solution from Constant Power Solutions could help you during potential powercuts that are likely to arrive through 2021.

China Powercuts 2021 Explained

Due to heavy trade sanctions and current logistical challenges due to the Coronavirus, China began to face growing powercuts in December 2020. This began due to a Beijing blockade of all Australian coal due to political disagreements.

This has led many cities across China to heavily ration their power. Factories and offices have closed, or have been told to only heat the building once temperatures reach freezing. There are many reports of people being stuck in powerless elevators for extended periods, workers having to leave by outdoor stairs and more.

Severe weather across the Asian continent has led to increased Coal and Diesel prices globally, furthering China’s issues. At present moment, coal ships have been left stranded due to the blockade for over six months. Many sailors have become seriously effected mentally and physically after nearly 2 years out at sea – leading to numerous calls by human rights activists to end the blockade and allow the Australian, Indian and other foreign nationals to leave Chinese waters.
