Description

Support for renewable energy production is a fast and effective solution to reduce emissions from the growing global demand for energy - one of the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases globally.

The Shanghai Cixi Wind Project generates clean power in China, displacing electricity which would have otherwise been generated by fossil fuels. A joint venture between a Chinese and European manufacturer, the project generates renewable electricity from wind resources in Hangzhou Bay. The project has installed 33 turbines, each of which has the capacity of 1.5 MW. The average annual generation is about 105 GWh, which reduces emissions by 100,000 tonnes.
