Hebei Haixing 49.5 MW Wind Farm Project
49.5 MW wind farm (33 x 1.5 MW turbines)
Electricity delivered annually to North China Grid is over 114 GWh per year
Displaces electricity with an emissions intensity of 1.0205 tCO2e/MWh
The Haifang Road passes through the wind farm, with turbines on either side of the road
The wind farm is located in the coastal area to the west of the old Yellow River estuary
Sustainability Beyond Carbon
The project’s operation has generated jobs for the local community in addition to the jobs generated during construction
By using renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions are avoided, electricity from fossil fuel power stations is displaced and waste by-products do not need to be disposed of
By reducing China’s reliance on imported fossil fuels, it helps increase China’s energy security. Local air quality is improved by avoiding the release of SO2 and NOx
China’s rapid economic growth in recent years has caused a serious shortage of electricity resulting in blackouts and brownouts throughout the country. These power outages reduce economic activity and negatively affect daily life
The project helps improve the grid’s supply thereby contributing to steady and reliable economic growth in the region
Stakeholder consultation through meetings and a questionnaire found the project had support from the local community for its promotion of local social, economic and environmental development. The response overall was supportive to the project’s implementation.
