Despite recent energy transformation measures initiated by the government, China is very dependent on coal for electricity generation. Coal is the main source of electricity production, representing 70% of the electricity mix (Source: IEA).
The effects of this situation are dramatic for climate change because GHG emissions continue to increase as the demand for electricity grow in the country. Burning coal also results in dreadful outdoor air pollution leading to respiratory diseases and a very high number of pollution-related deaths.
This project gathers a bundle of windmill sites deployed in 3 provinces in Eastern China: Liaoning, Heilongjiang and Jilin. The goal is to inject more clean, renewable energy into the electricity mix to reduce the negative health effects of air pollution and to lower GHG emissions.
