Wind Sheqi xiawaxiang
Clean energy from wind power

Henan, CHINA*

The Henan Sheqi Xiawaxiang wind farm project is located in Xiawa City, about 20 km northeast of
Sheqi County, Nanyang City.

The aim of the project is to install 24 wind turbines with a capacity of 2 MW to generate clean and renewable electricity without emissions. The total installed capacity of the project is 48 MW. Before the project activity was carried out, electricity was supplied by operating grid-connected power plants and adding new generation sources within the Central China Power Grid (CCPG). The renewable energy project contributes to a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of 78,219 tCO2e per year by avoiding the generation of electricity from the fossil fuel power plants connected to the CCPG in the base scenario.

The project clearly fits into China's development priority. The project will not only feed renewable electricity into the grid, but also contribute to the sustainable development of the local community by:

  • Emissions of other pollutants from the power generation industry in China will be reduced compared to a business-as-usual scenario
  • supporting wind power and promoting technological progress to promote grid-connected, clean, renewable energies
  • local jobs for the assembly and maintenance of the wind turbines are created

Climate change exacerbates the already extremely strong air pollution


According to an international study, climate change will further exacerbate air pollution in China. The number of premature deaths due to particulate matter will continue to rise, said study author and emeritus director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Mr. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber in an interview with Deutschlandfunk.

Is there a link between climate change and air pollution? This is the question that the international scientists have pursued.

The result of this international study, which is based on model calculations, gives figures: The scientists assume that, in addition to the approximately 1 million premature deaths due to respiratory diseases, lung cancer and strokes per year, triggered by fine dust, ozone and nitrogen dioxide, another 10,000 Deaths are caused by possible consequences of climate change. The main reason for this, according to Schellnhuber, is stagnating weather conditions. So hardly any wind, the warm air lies on top of the cold, like a lid. Dirt particles, including fine dust that penetrates into the lungs and brain, can cause damage undisturbed there. According to Schellnhuber, for up to 6 weeks until this so-called inversion weather situation changes again. Schellnhuber explains that these weather conditions are primarily related to the weakening, the change in the jet stream, as a result of the disproportionate warming of the Arctic. An effect that PIK calculated and published decades ago.

According to Schellnhuber, however, the study can also be applied to Germany or Central Europe. Air pollution in India is the focal point and far worse than in China. According to Schellnhuber, up to eight Indian cities will be on the list of the ten dirtiest cities (air).
