China developer planning 1.3GW wind, solar, battery storage hybrid plant

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Recharge:Chinese wind turbine maker Ming Yang Smart Energy (MYSE) has signed an agreement with local government to build a 1.3GW renewable-battery hybrid plant near the city of Tong Liao in China’s Inner Mongolia province, local newspaper Tong Liao Daily said.The project targets to eventually build up to 1000MW in wind power and 300MW solar, linked to a 320MW lithium-ion battery storage system, for which the company has pledged to invest ¥9Bn ($1.29bn).Construction of the project is scheduled to kick off in August 2020, with a plan to grid connect 300MW-500MW in four months and complete the full project by the end of 2021, deputy general manager of MYSE International Zhang Jian said on LinkedIn.The hybrid plan is the most recent of mega wind projects announced in the northern province of China, where local government in 2019 was allowed to approve large wind power projects again after a temporary ban on them by the central government in Beijing. Including Ming Yang’s hybrid plan, at least 11 other mega renewable projects with a combined wind capacity of 21.4GW (plus 1.5GW in solar capacity) have secured approval this year, Recharge understands from various project announcements.Ten of these projects are planned to be larger than 1GW each. Among them is a wind complex with 6GW of capacity being developed by State Power Investment Corp (SPIC), which will be the largest onshore wind farm in the world.Inner Mongolia is China’s largest wind power producing region, with 28.99GW in completed installations by the end of September that account for 15% of China’s total wind capacity.[Yuki Yu]More: Ming Yang unveils 1.3GW wind-solar-battery hybrid plan China developer planning 1.3GW wind, solar, battery storage hybrid plantlast_img
