Government officials of Sichuan's energy regulators are hosting a seminar next week to gauge the impact that shutting down local bitcoin mining activities would have had on the hydro-electricity excess this year. The Sichuan energy regulatory office under China's National Energy Administration sent a meeting summon on May 25 to representatives in various state-owned energy entities such as the State Grid's Sichuan office, the Sichuan Energy Industry Investment Group and the Energy Trading Center. Based on the meeting agenda outlined in the note, representatives from major energy sectors in Sichuan are asked to present the size of crypto mining activities under their remit as well as how big of an impact they think it will have on the government's plan to consume energy excess this year if these mining activities are all shut down.
