regions, including coastal areas of Jiangsu Province, in order to

improve wind power generation capacity, said President He Dexin of the

Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA).

He added that these

five regions include coastal and offshore areas of Jiangsu Province,

Hami Prefecture in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Jiuquan in

Gansu Province, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and coastal and

northern areas of Hebei Province. In accordance with their different

installed power capacity, power output of these five power bases will

vary.

Reporters learned that construction has already started

for the wind power base project in Jiuquan, Gansu. By 2015, the

installed power capacity of this wind power project will be equivalent

to the current power generating capacity of the Three Gorges Project.
