The Gansu Changma Wind Project is perfectly situated on the edge of the Gobi desert to take advantage of the extremely high winds in the area. The electricity generated by this project is delivered to the Northwest China Power Grid (NWPG), which has previously been largely connected to fossil fuel powered plants. The Gansu Changma Wind Project is helping people and the planet alike by creating jobs in green energy and helping to protect the environment by reducing emissions by over 425,000 tons of CO2e a year.
Clean and Renewable Energy
Wind farms generate clean and renewable energy, which is a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. By reducing the reliance on fossil fuels, the wind farm helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, which can have significant environmental and health benefits.
The construction and operation of the Gansu Changma Wind Project has created jobs and provided economic benefits to the region. It also helps promote the development of the local wind power industry, which can lead to further economic growth and job creation.
By diversifying the energy mix, the project contributes to energy security by reducing the dependence on imported fossil fuels. This can help to stabilize energy prices and ensure a more reliable supply of electricity.
Promoting jobs, improving quality of live and public awareness on environmental sustainability
Short term economic benefits through creation of jobs in construction and operation
Long term environmental benefits by improving access to electricity, promoting energy independence, and enhancing the quality of life for residents
Social benefits by raising awareness about the importance of renewable energy and environmental sustainability.
