Renewable Energy and Eco-friendly Industry

Gansu has an abundance of energy resources:

  • Hydroelectricity is generated at several locations. A renowned facility is the installation at Liujiaxia Gorge along the Yellow River.
  • Oilfields with 1-billion-ton reserves have been discovered.
  • In addition, there is considerable solar power potential in the province, some areas receive an average of up to 2,900 to 3,300 hours of annual sunshine.
  • With parts of the Province buffeted by strong, prevailing winds, wind power is tapped for generating electricity. The Wind Power Project of Nuclear Energy in Gansu is the first project demonstrating parity wind power of the grid-connected power generation in China.


Gansu has accelerated the development of 9 major eco-friendly industries:

    • energy conservation and environmental protection
    • clean production
    • clean energy
    • circular agriculture
    • traditional Chinese medicine
    • cultural tourism
    • channel logistics
    • data and information
    • advanced manufacturing

For example, a national modern agricultural industrial park has been established. The new intelligent glass greenhouse has become a demonstration project of agriculture in cold and dry conditions.

Non-ferrous Metals Industry

Gansu enjoys abundant resources and many varieties of non-ferrous metals. Its nickel reserves rank first in the country, while those of aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, antimony, tungsten and platinum-group elements are plentiful. The industry’s scale is expanding rapidly as the production volume of non-ferrous metals has maintained rapid growth in recent years. Due to the nonferrous metals clustered in Lanzhou, Jinchang and Baiyin, State-level nonferrous metal new material industrial bases have been formed in Gansu.
