Generating Reliable Wind Energy

Renewable Energy in Wendeng, China


Replacing the use of fossil fuels with reliable renewable energy distributed throughout China’s Northeast Shandong Province

Shandong Province in Northeast China, often called the ‘East of Mountains,’ experiences cold winters with northwest winds and hot, dry summers with southeast winds.

This region is perfectly positioned for the Shandong Wendeng Zhangjiachan Wind Farm Project, which produces electricity by building and running a 49.3MW wind farm in Wendeng City, China. It consists of 58 wind turbines, each with an 850 kW capacity.

The project creates clean, green energy from wind power, providing 90,997 MWh of renewable electricity to the Northeast China Power Grid (NECP). This helps replace the need for coal-powered grid-connected plants, which would have otherwise generated this electricity. In the process, the project reduces approximately 84,709 metric tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year, totaling 592,963 over its 7-year duration.
