Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the bank website, Concord New Energy Group Limited is a leading renewable energy company in China. It is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The Company is engaged in development of wind and solar power plants, operations and maintenance, as well as engineering, procurement and construction. As of June 2017, Concord owns and operates 40 wind projects with around 1.2 gigawatt (“GW”) of attributable capacity, and 17 solar projects with around 0.3 GW of attributable capacity. IFC proposes to provide a convertible loan to the Company to support construction of two wind power plants in China.

The project will increase China's installed wind capacity by 200MW and will displace GHG emission equivalent to 390,000 metric tons of CO2 each year, supporting the country's plans to significantly increase the contribution of renewable energy to its energy mix in line with its Intendeda Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) commitment. China's INDC outlines a vision of reduction of 60-65% in emission intensity of China's GDP by 2030 from 2005 levels and achieving 20% of generation based on non-fossil fuels versus 12% in 2016. The majority of installed generation capacity in China is in traditional coal-fired plants and using cleaner generation will help alleviate the severe air pollution problem in China.
