Tangshanpeng Wind Farm

China is short of energy resources, especially oil and gas, but is the world’s largest coal producer accounting for 38% of world coal production in 2006. The Tangshanpeng project provides a working model of wind power generation in a popular tourist location, and contributes to the promotion of the Chinese renewable energy industry.


The wind farm consists of 7 x 600kW, 2 x 250kW and 29 x 750kW wind turbines spaced out across a hill top plateau in the Tangshan hills and generates 26.45 MW of electricity. The annual electricity generation is approximately 45,000 MWh per year, which is equivalent to the supply of approximately 10,500 UK households with clean renewable electricity.
