In 2015, the share of electrified railways in China was about 40%. It is forecasted that this figure will increase to 60% in 2020 and 90% in 2050.

Ships and boats in ports and harbors are encouraged to use electricity rather than diesel. In airports, all vehicles and equipment are encouraged to be driven by electricity. In 2017, State Grid built 44 high‑voltage and 507 low-voltage power supply systems along the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, eastern coast and Yangtze River. 50% of ports along the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal now are able to provide electricity supply.
