The China Wind Project


For years, the Chinese energy industry has been showing growth rates of 7% per year. The main reasons are rising industrial production and continued urban growth.

This project comprises the construction and operation of a wind farm with 33 turbines and a total capacity of 49.5 megawatts. The wind farm feeds approximately 110,000 MWh of electricity into the Northwest China Power Grid (NCPG) annually and displaces electricity from coal-fired power plants. This amount is sufficient to supply more than 70,000 households with electricity.

Sustainable Development – The Sustainable Development Goals


While focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, all our projects also generate multiple co-benefits. These are supportive of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

By supporting this project you’ll contribute to the following Sustainable Development Goals:

Decent work and economic growth: This project generates employment opportunities for professional, skilled and unskilled personnel during the construction, operation and maintenance of the wind farm. Moreover, it creates business opportunities for local stakeholders such as vendors, contractors and suppliers, further supporting the local economy.

Industry, innovation and infrastructure: The Project augments regional energy supply, promotes development and enhances social well-being. The wind turbines are constructed domestically, therefore promoting the growth of the wind manufacturing industry.

Life on land: The project improves local air and water quality by reducing other pollutants such as sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, soot and particles associated with the burning of fossil fuels.
