China Energy Group has built a model of China-Africa energy cooperation in 10 years
In the mountains near Dea Town, Northern Cape Province, South Africa, white wind turbines stand proudly. The wind blows, and the blades of the wind turbine slowly rotate. This is the wind turbine for the De-Ah wind power project operated by China National Energy Group Longyuan Power South Africa.

On October 29, 2013, China Energy Group Longyuan Power South Africa won the bid for the Phase 1 and Phase 2 wind power projects located in De A in Northern Cape Province, with a total investment of about 2.5 billion yuan and a total installed capacity of 244,500 kilowatts. The annual power generation of the De A project exceeds 750 million kWh, which is equivalent to saving more than 200,000 tons of standard coal and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by about 700,000 tons, making a positive contribution to the clean and low-carbon development of South Africa.

A few days ago, Wang Min, director of China Energy Group, delivered a keynote speech at the 6th BRICS National Media High-level Forum Think Tank Report Release and Seminar, saying that as one of the world’s largest energy suppliers, China Energy Group’s development and construction in South Africa A wind power project is the largest wind power project in South Africa. It can provide clean wind power for 300,000 households every year. It has creatively built an ecological development model that integrates projects, enterprises, society and the environment. It has become a joint construction of the “Belt and Road” initiative. typical representative. South Africa’s new energy has great potential for development. China National Energy Group looks forward to working with South African partners to build more new energy projects like Germany and Azerbaijan to promote sustainable energy development.
When evaluating the wind power cooperation project between the National Energy Group and South Africa, Merel Mulindabigvi, CEO of Rwanda’s mainstream media “Time” News Network, emphasized that Africa is in great need of this kind of cooperation. He said that Africa’s energy production capacity is insufficient, but there is a huge gap in energy demand for local life and production, in contrast to Africa’s abundant renewable natural resources such as wind energy and solar energy. He said that Africa needs such partners as the National Energy Group, and he expects them to carry out such cooperation in more countries in Africa. “China-Africa energy cooperation not only supplements the local energy gap, but also brings technology transfer and helps the host country cultivate professional talents. I hope to carry out relevant energy cooperation in more African countries.”
The construction and operation of the Longyuan De’A project has so far provided more than 700 local jobs, and at the same time provided professional technical support and personnel training, benefiting local residents in South Africa in terms of solving employment and promoting the development of local communities, beautifying the surrounding environment of the project, and promoting Enterprise sustainable development.
