December 20 saw the formal completion of 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱’𝘀 𝘀𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱 𝗹𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗵𝘆𝗱𝗿𝗼𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝗱𝗮𝗺 on an upstream branch of the Yangtze river in #Sichuan province. The Baihetan hydropower station is equipped with sixteen 1-gigawatt (GW) turbines, making it the second largest hydropower generator in China and the world, behind only the Three Gorges Project, also on the Yangtze river. The plant is estimated to generate 62.44 billion kilowatt-hour (kWh) annually which will save about 90.45 million tons of coal a year and cut annual carbon dioxide emissions by 248.4 million tonnes.
China's 𝗹𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘂𝗻𝘀𝘂𝗯𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗳𝗳𝘀𝗵𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗱 𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗷𝗲𝗰𝘁 has become fully operational in Shanwei, #Guangdong province since December 20 after the electricity generated from the last of the 128 wind turbines was connected to the grid. The renewable energy production base can supply 4.5 billion kilowatt hours of green electricity a year to Guangdong province. This will reduce traditional energy use by 1.45 million tons of standard coal and cut carbon dioxide emission by 3.5 million tons.
World's 𝗳𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗵𝘆𝗱𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗲𝗻-𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗴𝘆 𝘂𝗿𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻 rolled off the assembly line in #Chengdu, #Sichuan province on December 28. Jointly developed by CRRC Changchun Railway Co and Chengdu Rail Transit, the train has adopted the key core technology of the Fuxing bullet train, with a maximum speed of 160 kilometers per hour with a built-in "hydrogen power" system, reaching battery capacity of 600 kilometers.
Did you know that China currently has 𝟰𝟲 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗻𝘂𝗰𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗿 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗱 with the ambitious program to complete 150 additional nuclear reactors with a total of 200GW capacity by 2035.
