China Energy Engineering Group (Energy China) has signed a framework agreement with Erdos city government in Inner Mongolia to set up an integrated energy base with total investment of 23.8 billion yuan ($3.63 billion) in the region. ..
The project will add 1 GW wind power generation capacity and 5 GW solar capacity in addition to the already planned 8 GW coal-fired power plants in Erdos. Energy China also plans to build some electricity storage facilities to go alongside with the integrated energy project. Once launched, the integrated energy project will generate around 33 BUs of electricity each year, of which more than 41 per cent is expected to come from renewable sources.
