China to halt some new wind power projects as supply glut builds

China will halt investment for new wind power projects in eight provinces and regions because of increasing cases of wasted wind energy due to capacity excesses, the National Energy Administration (NEA) said on Wednesday.

Many wind farms in China’s western regions are not connected to major transmission grids, effectively wasting the electricity generated through those projects.

Because of the wastage, the NEA said it will stop issuing new power generation licenses to wind companies in Inner Mongolia, Gansu, Ningxia and Xinjiang in northwestern China along with Heilongjiang and Jilin in the northeast.

Transmission grid operators will also not be allowed to connect new wind projects to the power grid, it said.

The NEA will also suspend a batch of large scale wind farms that are either under construction or has been operating in Xinjiang and Gansu.
