Wind power project in China (Hebei Yuxian Project)


The project site is located in the southwest of Yuxian County, Zhangjiakou City of Hebei Province, in the North of China. Hebei means “North of the [Yellow] River.” The site is in Xiushuipeng Village approximately 18 km from Xiagongcun Town. Hebei lies at the heart of one of two major industrial regions in China. The province developed a modest industrial base from the late 19th century onward, chiefly in coal, iron, textiles, and indigenous handicrafts.

Project description

Hebei Yuxian Second Phase 49.5 MW Wind Power Project is developed by Hebei Construction Investment Yuzhou Wind Energy Co., Ltd. As a renewable wind power project, it can generate greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions (hereinafter referred to as ERs) by displacing power from the NCPG (North China Power Gird) which is of high-growth and dominated by fossil-fuel fired power plants. The proposed project will install 33 sets of wind turbines, each of which has a rated installed capacity of 1,500 kW, providing a total installed capacity of 49.5 MW. 

The annual output of the proposed project is estimated to be 112,170 MWh and the electricity will be exported to the North China Power Grid. The scenario existing prior to the start of the implementation of the project is: The same electricity output by the proposed project activity would have otherwise been generated by the operation of NCPG connected power plants and by the addition of new generation sources. That is the same as the baseline scenario. When the proposed project is operated, the electricity generated will displace part of the electricity from fossil fuel-fired plants connected to the NCPG, and thus greenhouse gas (GHG) generated by coal-fired power plants could be reduced.

Project achievements

Socio-economic impact

  • During the construction phase, many locals found temporary work in the preparation and erection of the wind turbines.
  • Development of the local economy has been considered as a priority therefore, local companies were also benefiting.
  • The proposed project plans to utilize state-of-the-art wind turbines produced by domestic factories to promote the wind turbine manufacturing industries.

Environmental impact

  • Thanks to the avoidance of further coal-fired electricity generation, air pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and particulate matter are being reduced. This benefits health and general environmental conditions.
  • The project activity is reducing greenhouse emissions in China compared to business-as-usual scenario.
  • The wind turbines will reduce the emission of pollutants through replacing fossil fuel combustion.
  • The proposed project activity will achieve obvious GHG emission reductions by avoiding CO2 emissions, as grid-connected fossil fuel-fired power plants have dominated the NCPG before.
