Giant China Project Leads the Rise of Renewable
A pipeline of blockbuster clean energy projects is building from Oman
Turbines at a wind farm near near Golmud, Qinghai province, China.
China, already a global leader in renewable energy, is seeking to
raise the bar dramatically on wind and solar capacity with a massive
new project in
The initiative, which is at least twice the size of the next-largest
planned global development, comes as the nation attempts to quickly
ramp up the pace of its transition to carbon neutrality ahead of
global climate talks.
As China leads the way in adopting wind and solar power, other
countries are striving to keep pace. Australia has several large
projects planned, while South Korea and Oman are also emerging as
strong players. Here are some of the largest renewable projects in the
China Desert Project
Location: likely in western China
Initial capacity: 100 gigawatts of wind and solar
Possible total capacity: as much as 400GW, according to reports

The first phase would create capacity that’s more than the total
currently installed in India, according to Bloomberg NEF, and it would
be able to generate four times as much power as the Three Gorges Dam.
While details are scant, construction has already begun, President Xi
Jinping said Tuesday. A likely location is western China, and previous
unconfirmed reports said half of the total capacity would be
constructed by 2025.
Western Green Energy Hub
Location: Western Australia
Planned total capacity: up to 50GW of hybrid wind and solar
July, the proposed hub, which could cost as much as A$100 billion ($73
billion), would cover an area half the size of Belgium. To be built in
phases, the first production is slated for the beginning of the next
decade. The project would
produce as much as 3.5 million tons of green hydrogen or 20 million
tons of green ammonia each year for domestic use and export.

Location: Jinsha River, an upper stretch of the Yangtze in Southwest
Planned total capacity: 16GW of hydro

Already partly in
the project is set to be commissioned at full capacity by July 2022,
becoming the second-largest hydropower station in the world, second
only to Three Gorges Dam, according to Chinese state media. The
project will send clean electricity from southwestern China to
industrial provinces on the east coast.
Asian Renewable Energy Hub
Location: Western Australia
First phase: 15GW of wind and solar
Planned total capacity: 26GW
The AREH, which would use electricity from wind and solar plants
stretched across thousands of miles, plans to
use much of the energy to produce green hydrogen for domestic use and
export. But the project, which targeted the first exports by 2028, has
run up against major headwinds after
the Australian government rejected the proposals in June citing
worries about the environmental impact. The consortium behind AREH
said it’s working to engage with the government on those concerns.
South Korea Offshore Wind Project
Location: Southern coast of Korean peninsula
Planned total capacity: 8.2GW of offshore wind

South Korean President Moon Jae-In in February, the project is worth
48.5 trillion won ($41 billion) and will be built in phases over the
next decade. It is set to become the world’s largest offshore
wind farm once
commissioned. The project is part of President Moon’s “Green New Deal”
to help the country reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
Green Energy Oman
Planned total capacity: 25GW of wind and solar
An international consortium including Oman’s government-owned
petroleum investment company OQ and InterContinental Energy launched the
project in May to produce 25GW of solar and wind energy and “produce
millions of tons” of green hydrogen annually. The group said the
site’s strategic location between Europe and Asia would position it to
offer a reliable supply of green fuels globally at a competitive
