Burqin River Chonghuer Hydropower Project in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region


The Northwest China Power grid is dominated by thermal power plants. The project will displace an equivalent amount of electricity currently generated by fossil-fuel power plants by making use of clean and renewable energy, thus achieving expected GHGs emission reductions of 325,442tCO2e annually. The project contributes to the local environmental protection and sustainable development as follows:

  • Supply renewable and clean power to local region to offset power shortage
  • Enhance the proportion of clean and renewable energy sources and optimize electricity structure
  • Reduce the GHGs emission and other air pollutant, and speed up environment protection and eco-construction
  • Create Employments: maximum thousands of labors are needed at the peak time in the construction phase and 66 permanent positions will be provided during the operation phase
  • Increase local income and improve local living condition
