Yuanmou Wind Power, China

Supporting China’s green growth by enhancing renewable energy capacity to meet growing energy demands.

Project overview

  • Region: Asia

  • Project type: Renewable energy

  • Standards: CDM

Located in Yunnan province in the south of China, this wind power project is expected to supply more than 110,000 MWh of zero-emissions renewable electricity to the South China Power Grid each year. The project is validated and verified under the Clean Development Mechanism and is aiding China in an essential switch to renewable energy to meet its rapidly increasing energy demand. The project consists of 33 turbines, each with an individual capacity of 1.5 MW. With an aggregate capacity of 49.5 MW, the wind farm generates over 112,000 MWh per year. 

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to delivering emissions reductions to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), we expect the project to deliver a number of other benefits. The contributions towards the SDGs have been indicatively measured but need to be confirmed by the project developers: 

  • Affordable and Clean Energy: China’s growth has led to an increasing requirement for energy and a reliance on fossil fuels to meet this demand. The country is the world’s largest producer and consumer of coal – accounting for almost as much as the rest of the world combined.
  • Decent Work and Economic Growth: The wind farm has contributed to the local economy and livelihood of residents through the creation of jobs – full-time operational roles and temporary jobs during the construction period for commissioning and power infrastructure.

Over 268,000 turbines now produce electricity in over 89 countries around the world.
