China may tighten approval of wind energy projects

China’s National Energy Administration may reinstate its control over onshore wind farm projects with less than 50,000 kilowatts of capacity, the China Securities Journal said, citing an unidentified person.

Currently, wind power farms of less than 50,000 kilowatts are approved by provincial governments and only larger wind turbines facilities need approval from the central-government agency, the Beijing-based newspaper said Wednesday.
