It's going to get worse before it gets better.
From a Western perspective maybe but not for the reality of China. The vast majority of rural Chinese heat and cook with coal stoves. A new coal plant supplying electricity to a city is far better than a town full of people cooking over a coal stove.

China's coal consumption is actually going down not up even with all the new coal fired electrical plants. It peaked in 2013.
