The objective of the project is the generation of zero carbon emission electricity from hydropower and the displacement of the same amount of electricity from the Northwest China Power Grid (NWPG) that is mainly dominated by electricity derived from coal-fired power plants.
The Xinjiang A’letai Hua’ning Hydropower Project is located in the middle stream of Sumudayilieke River, A’letai City, (Xinjiang Uygur , P.R. China) and is developed by XinJiang A’letai Hua’ning Hydropower Investment Developing Co., Ltd.
The Project is designed to install 2 sets of turbine generators with a unit capacity of 50 MW for each. The total installed capacity is 100 MW with average 3,322 hours operational hours per year. The project includes the dam on the river, factory buildings and substation. The Project is connected to the Northwest China Power Grid (NWPG) through Xinjiang power grid, and mitigates the power shortage in Xinjiang and Northwest China Power Grid. Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel-fired electricity generating plants connected to the NWPG are displaced due to the project activity and the CO2 is the main emission source in the baseline.
The Project contribute to the sustainable development of the local area and the Host Country by enhancing the electricity supply capacity and improving the electricity quality and reducing transmission line loss for the area as well as by bringing positive social and environmental benefits to local communities. The specific sustainable development benefits of the Project are listed as follows:
➢ Reducing the reliance of the NWPG on exhaustible fossil fuels for power generation; ➢ Reducing air pollution by fossil fuel based electricity by clean, renewable power ; ➢ Improving the power mix of the NWPG by supplying clean energy; ➢ Improving the local energy generation infrastructure, bridging the gap between power supply and demand by increasing the electricity generation capacity to the local grid; ➢ Reducing the threat posed by air pollution to human health; ➢ Creating job opportunities for the local communities. The Project provided 27 job opportunities throughout the operating period, and these employment opportunities are helpful for the local people to improve their living standards.
