A groundbreaking ceremony for the Three Gorges Modern Energy Industrial Park was held on Oct 31 in Inner Mongolia Qahar Industrial Park in Ulaanqab city, North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region.
The modern energy industrial park will be co-built by Ulaanqab city and China Three Gorges Corporation, a world-class clean energy group focusing on large-scale hydropower development and operation.
It will be a comprehensive industrial park with the "wind, light, storage and hydrogen" industries as its core businesses when it starts operating.

It will integrate new-generation information technologies such as modern energy technology, internet of things technology and cloud computing. It will also use distributed power sources and energy storage equipment to build an intelligent industrial park that runs on green energy and has a comprehensive utilization of multiple energy storage types.
On the same day construction began in the industrial park, a newly built power project in Ulaanqab city was put into use.
The project's total installed capacity is 3.1 million kilowatts, which will help address the problem of the power system's low overall efficiency. It will also significantly improve the level of clean energy consumption and enhance the regional power grid's peak load protection capacity.
Implementation of the two projects marked an important step for Inner Mongolia to push forward the modern energy economy's development.
