China Energy Comments on Government Coal Pricing Policy Changes

Company to Benefit From New Market-Oriented Pricing Mechanism

ERDOS CITY, CHINA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2008) - China Energy Corporation (OTCBB: CHGY), a leading producer of coal, heat, and electricity in Inner Mongolia, China, is pleased to provide this statement regarding recent policy changes announced by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the State agency responsible for economic policy and social development in China.

"The adoption of free market pricing of coal in 2009 will further strengthen the Company's position within the rapidly growing energy market in Inner Mongolia," said Mr. WenXiang Ding, President of China Energy. "The ongoing expansion and technology upgrades at our coal, heat and power co-production facilities will allow us significant operational and economic advantages over our competitors as domestic prices begin to reflect to the real supply, demand, scarcity, and environmental costs of coal."

Inner Mongolia TeHong Coal and Power Co. Ltd, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, (pursuant to the Trust Agreement entered into on December 31, 2007) is currently undertaking a large-scale expansion and technology upgrade of its LaiYeGou Coal Mine operation. Annual coal production capacity is expected to increase by 80% to 900,000 tons with overall coal recovery rates increasing by 50 to 80%.

Additionally, recent enhancements at the Company's thermoelectric heating and power generating plant have increased its annual heat production capacity by over 150 times from 736,000 megajoules to 110,400,000 megajoules.
