Yuxian Baiyantuo 49.3 MW Wind Power Project in China

The Yuxian Baitantuo 49.3 MW Wind Power Project is a renewable energy project in China that is certified by the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). The VCS programme is the world’s most widely used voluntary greenhouse gas programme.

The total installed capacity of the project is 49.3 MW equipped with 58 sets of wind turbines with a unit installed capacity of 850 kw. The estimated net electricity supplied to the North China Grid is 104,713.2 MWh per year via a 110 kV transmission line.

North China Grid is dominated by traditional thermal power plants. The project, as a renewable energy source, is expected to generate emission reduction of 99,501 tCO2e per year. Besides supplying renewable energy to the North China Grid, the project will also contribute to the sustainable development of the local community, the host country and the world by means of:

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • Diversifying power sources
  • Encouraging the progress of grid-connected renewable energy projects

The project helps to contribute to the below United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:


Southern Cardamom REDD+ Project in Cambodia

The Southern Cardamom REDD+ Project is an initiative designed to promote climate change mitigation and adaption, maintain biodiversity and create alternative livelihoods under the United Nations scheme of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+). The project encompasses parts of Southern Cardamom National Park and Tatai Wildlife Sanctuary and will protect a critical part of the Cardamom Mountains Rainforest Ecoregion, which is one of the 200 most important locations for biodiversity conservation on the planet.

The project is part of the Indo-Burma hotspot, one of the world’s 34 biodiversity hotspots with a mosaic of habitats that supports at least 52 species of International Union for Conservation of Nature threatened birds, mammals and reptiles. The project helps to improve the development and management of community protected areas, halt illegal logging and deforestation, and is expected to reduce forest emissions by approximately 3,819,524 tons of carbon emissions per year.

Besides wildlife and biodiversity conservation, the project will also contribute to the sustainable development of the local community, the host country and the world by means of:

  • Improving health care facilities as the proceeds will be used to increase support to health care workers and improve facilities such as rainwater collection, sanitation etc
  • Developing eco-tourism and infrastructure and creating job opportunities
  • Creating a scholarship fund for students from any of the 29 communities in the Project zone to promote accessibility to higher education

The project helps to contribute to the below United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
