North Longyuan Wulatehouqi Wuliji Wind Farm 49.5MW Project
The North Longyuan Wulatehouqi Wuliji Wind Farm 49.5MW Project is a wind farm project in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region in China. It generates electricity from wind enegy which is led to the North China Power Grid. The project consists of 33 wind turbines with a capacity of 1,500 kW each which makes a combined total of 49.5 MW of renewable energy power generation capacity.
If the project would not have been developed, electricity would be generated by the operation of grid-connected power plants. The replacement of these power plants causes an emission reduction which is estimate on an average of 100,221 tonnes CO2 annually.
Besides the emission reduction, the project is contributing to sustainable development in the following ways:
Promotes local economic development by creating local employment opportunities during both the construction and operational phase of the project activity;
Generates electricity from renewable sources. Consequently this leads to a decrease of the use of fossil fuels;
Promotes technology development through the use of advanced technologies. These technologies are used for a transition to a more sustainable economy;
Avoids emissions of other pollutants associated with the operation of fossil fuelfired thermal power plants (like SO2 and soot). Consequently, air quality is improved.
