The world’s biggest solar plant is connected to the grid crossing 32,947 acres in the desert of northwest Xinjiang and it is capable of supplying power to a small country on its own.

A solar plant of 3.5 GW, which is the world’s largest plant, is connected to the grid. Countries like Cameroon and Laos can get enough power supply for this solar plant. China considers this project its most important plant as it is the world’s top emitter.

A report submitted by The International Energy Agency (IEA) about China says that they have installed more solar projects in 2023 than the world in 2022 and carbon emissions dipped for the first time in over a year.

The World’s largest solar projects of China have a great impact on China’s ambitious goals which are to reach its peak emissions by 2030 and net zero carbon emissions by 2060. IEA predicts that by 2030 half of the power supply in China will come from renewable sources.

China already has its two largest solar plants located in western China to generate vast amounts of electricity as the region is ideal for all renewable projects.

President Xi has committed to clean energy which is going beyond China’s borders. He highlighted China’s “sense of responsibility to build a community with a shared future for mankind” in a US-led climate summit. But it’s not all altruism – China also sees this as a way to ensure its own “sustainable development.”
