Among these bases, Hami stands out as a 10 GW-level renewable energy base. Meanwhile, a dozen areas including Zhundong, Dabancheng, and others have developed into 1 GW-level renewable energy concentration zones.

As of the end of April 2023, Xinjiang’s power grid had installed 44.63 GW of renewable energy, accounting for 37.8% of the total installed capacity.

In the first four months of this year alone, 3.76 GW of renewable energy were connected to the Xinjiang power grid. This represents 8.4% of the total renewable energy capacity that has been built so far.

Xinjiang has abundant renewable energy resources, and its investment in renewable energy aligns with China’s goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2060.

The commission is continuing to accelerate the construction of new energy bases in Zhundong, Hami North, Southern Xinjiang Huanta, and Ruoqiang. This investment will not only optimize energy structures but also ensure national energy security and promote high-quality economic development in Xinjiang.
