China has raised the curtain on the layout and construction of six 10,000MW wind power bases in Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Gansu, Hebei, and Jiangsu, said Shi Pengfei, vice president for the Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA).
The northwestern Chinese city of Jiuquan, Gansu Province, has complete the construction planning of its 10,000MW wind power base, and total installed capacity is predicted to beat 12,000MW in 2015. In addition, the 20,000MW wind farm located in Hami, Xinjiang Autonomous Region, northwestern China, is under construction now.
In the near future, Inner Mongolia, Hebei, and Jiangsu will successively create the wind power bases with an aggregate installed capacity of 50,000MW, 10,000MW, and 7,000MW, respectively.
China gave a strong support to the renewable energy realm in 2008, and total newly-added wind power installed capacity exceeded 4,000MW. As of last year end, the country had completed wind power installed capacity of more than 10,000MW, ranking No.5 around the world. Remarkably, this figure is expected to be lifted to 30,000MW and 80,000MW in 2011 and 2020, separately
