China - Second Renewable Energy Project : environmental assessment : Environment impact assessement - Huitengxile wind power, Inner Mongolia (English)

In seeking to demonstrate early success in large-scale, renewable energy development with participating local developers in two provinces, the Second Renewable Energy Project will comprise two components: a 100MW wind farm in Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and a bundle of small hydro construction and rehabilitation projects in Zhejiang province. Besides the many beneficial environmental aspects, the project will select advanced equipments, so the pollutants such as air, liquid or solid wastes will not be produced during the wind power generation; serious electromagnetic interference and sound pollution will not be produced, so there will be little negative impact on the environment. Furthermore, the wind farm can produce clean, and green energy which can replace coal-fired power, greatly reduce pollution of the environment, utilize natural re-generable resources, and save non-recoverable fossil fuel resources. Great environment and social results can be achieved from the project, so it is practicable in view of environmental protection. As per the State Environment Effect Evaluation Law, the Wulanchabu Environment Research Institute will take the responsibility of evaluating the environmental impact within the construction and operation period, provide indicators to prevent, or reduce negative impacts on the environment, and practice set monitoring criteria. Subprojects will generally cause minor impacts on the environment and should be minimized through standard mitigating measures. As such, the overall Project falls under Category B according to the Bank's operational policy on Environmental Assessment (OP4.01). However, owing to the possibility of great differences within subprojects on environmental issues, it is possible some subprojects may cause significant environmental issues, thus, could require (both by the Government of China and the Bank) a detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (Category A EIA). Therefore, it is not suitable to prepare a uniform environmental assessment (EA) documentation for all subprojects. The purpose of this environmental assessment (EA) framework is to be used to provide guidance for the environmental assessment process to be followed in evaluating individual subprojects considered for financial support under the overall Project.
