Objectives and Scope The Project will promote sustainable growth and environmental improvement in PRC through contributions toward achieving minimum share targets for renewable energy in the generation mix and for wind power generation in particular. The Project will also mitigate significant amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve the energy security of the country by developing indigenous energy sources. By supporting a collaboration between one of the established big-five local power companies and foreign strategic investors with expertise in wind, the Project features a strong model to enhance private sector participation in wind power generation, which is at an early stage and which is crucial for the further development of the sector, and thus will encourage the private sector to invest in wind power projects beyond the Project's interventions. The Project will help Inner Mongolia's economic growth and energy diversification in an environmentally sustainable manner. Finally, by providing long-term CNY financing, the loan will provide the best possible financing solution for the Project under the current market circumstances that would not be available without ADB's participation.
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Project is in line with ADB's country strategy for PRC, which includes clean energy development and inclusive growth. The Project is consistent with ADB's private sector operations in the PRC, which focus on the infrastructure and energy sectors, the financial sector, and environmental improvements. The Project is also consistent with ADB's Energy Policy that recommends a reorientation of energy sector activities to address regional and global environmental impacts. By introducing clean technologies, the Project will address regional and global environmental problems by reducing GHG emissions.
Status of Development Objectives The Project has achieved approximately 568,281 tons CO2 emission reduction since the start of commercial operations in September 2009 until December 2013.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Since this is a wind-power undertaking, and except for life waste, no harmful atmospheric or solid contaminants are discharged during operation. Therefore there is no occurrence of air or water contamination, green space reduction or soil erosion caused by project operation. The wind power facilities emit mechanical noise at a level of approximately 100 110dB during operation, however, there is no human habitation within 4km of the facility, and beyond 4km there is no impact from the noise. As there are limited environmental impacts on air, noise, ecology andvisual impacts, regular visual monitoring suffices as part of operation and maintenance work for the turbines and surrounding areas.
