    CHINA TO CONNECT 100 GW OF WIND BY 2015

    China’s Wind-Power Capacity Linked to Grid Up 87%, Xinhua Says

    August 16, 2012 (Bloomberg BusinessWeek)

    “China connected 50.26 gigawatts of wind-generated capacity to the nation’s largest electricity grid as of this year, the official Xinhua News Agency said, citing a statement from China State Grid Corp.

    “Growth in the on-grid wind power capacity was up 87 percent annually over the last six years…[according to] the larger of China’s two transmission operators. Grid-linked capacity will rise to 100 gigawatts by 2015 and 200 gigawatts by 2020…”

    “China, the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases, plans to have at least 15 percent of its energy mix come from non-fossil fuels by 2020. Wind farms are the second-biggest contributor to renewable-energy capacity in the nation after hydropower dams.

    “Regional concentrations of wind resources and a lack of links between local electricity networks and the national grid prevent the efficient use of wind power…China needs to accelerate the construction of trans- regional grids to meet its energy-development targets…[according to State Gird deputy general manager at Shu Yinbiao]…”
