Wind farm of 49.5 MW connected to grid in Tianjin - China

Feb 15, 2011 12:00 AM

The largest wind farm project in north China's Tianjin Municipality was connected to grid supplying power enough for 247,500 households a year. The Shajingzi Wind Farm, with 49.5 MW of generating capacity in its first phase, could generate 10 mm kW/h of electricity a year, equivalent to the use of 30,000 tn of coal, said Liu Mingzhi, head of the development and planning department of the Tianjin Power Co.. He said the entire project was scheduled to be completed by the end of 2012, when it would boast a generating capacity of 200 MW.

The clean energy project is expected to cut dust emissions by 92,400 tn a year in Tianjin, based on the amount of coal consumed for that amount of power production. Liu said the city government invested 1.4 bn Yuan ($ 212mm) in building a smart grid last year, which allowed power from Tianjin Dashentang Wind Farm, the first of its kind in Tianjing, to be connected. The city's budget for grid building this year was set at 1.9 bn Yuan to allow for more solar and wind generated power, he said. Problems with grid connection have left many new energy power generating facilities redundant across China.

Market Research

The International Affairs Institute (IAI) and OCP Policy Center recently launched a new book: The Future of Natural Gas. Markets and Geopolitics.


The book is an in-depth analysis of some of the fastest moving gas markets, attempting to define the trends of a resource that will have a decisive role in shaping the global economy and modelling the geopolitical dynamics in the next decades.

Some of the top scholars in the energy sector have contributed to this volume such as Gonzalo Escribano, Director Energy and Climate Change Programme, Elcano Royal Institute, Madrid, Coby van der Linde, Director Clingendael International Energy Programme, The Hague and Houda Ben Jannet Allal, General Director Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME), Paris.
