Huaneng Power International, Inc. Expects Loss for 2008 Results

BEIJING, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Huaneng Power
International, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: HNP; HKEx: 902; SSE: 600011) today
announces its estimated results for 2008.

Based on a preliminary estimate by the Company, it is expected that the
Company may record an unaudited loss for the period from 1 January 2008 to 31
December 2008. The loss was mainly due to the reason that prices of fuel coal
increased drastically in 2008, such that the average fuel coal price in 2008
was significantly higher than that in 2007. Although power tariffs had been
adjusted upwards two times during the period, the increments were still unable
to offset the rise in fuel costs.

Detailed financial information will be disclosed in the 2008 Annual Report
of the Company. Potential investors and shareholders of the Company are
advised to exercise caution when dealing in the shares of the Company.

Huaneng Power International, Inc. has a total generation capacity of
37,593MW on an equity basis and a controlling installed generation capacity of
40,989MW. The Company wholly owns sixteen operating power plants, an
operating power company, and has controlling interests in thirteen operating
power companies and minority interests in five operating power companies.
Currently, it is one of the largest listed power producers in China.
