No one is taking State Grid’s place as the world’s largest utility anytime soon. The Chinese giant enjoys a monopoly like few others. State Grid’s spending on solar farms, wind, and alternative energy sources has counted in the tens of billions lately, driven by China’s unprecedented push into alternatives. After executives were caught up in China president Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign last year, State Grid has avoided negative headlines for more conversations about China’s energy future.
