Several regions around China are rushing to reach energy efficiency goals before the end of the year. Some have taken matters into their own hands - implementing rotational brownouts or even cutting off power.

But the State Council has ordered local governments to stop interfering with normal power supplies to companies, and especially households. The State Council says these moves go against the intentions of the energy targets, and must be corrected immediately. Local governments were also instructed to reopen thermal power plants that were shut down.

The cut has led to a surge of diesel demand as businesses resort to diesel-fired power generators that fly below the radar of the official energy efficiency campaign.
