Estimated Carbon Saving per year

The project is estimated to reduce GHG emissions for Phase 1 of the project by 101,214 tonnes and for Phase 2 by 100,035 tonnes of carbon emissions on average each year, giving a combined total of 201,249 tonnes of carbon emissions on average each year.


Data and information has been taken from the publicly available documentation on the registry websites.

What's the project about?

The Jilin Taonan Xinli Wind Project is located in Xinli Village in Jilin Province in the North East of China.

The project’s 33 wind turbines harness strong prevailing winds to generate clean, renewable electricity.  Traditionally, electricity in China’s Jilin Province has been dominated by thermal power use.

How does the project generate carbon credits?

The project aims to utilize clean and renewable wind sources to generate electricity and substitute the equivalent amount of electricity generated by fossil – fuel fired power plants that connected to Northeast China Power Grid (NECPG), thus achieving CO2 emission reductions. As a wind farm, the project does not consume fossil fuel for electricity generation and therefore avoids the corresponding greenhouse gas emissions associated with this.

What are the wider benefits of the project?

The project will not only supply renewable electricity to the grid, but also contribute to sustainable development of the local community and the host country by means of:

  • Reducing the emission of air pollutants like SO2 and soot resulting from the power generation industry in China, compared with a business-as-usual scenario;
  • Mitigating the pressure of local power supply and promoting local economic development during both construction and operation periods of the project;
  • Creating new employment opportunities and helping to improve the livelihood of local residents;

The project will thereby greatly contribute to the sustainable development of the region.
