ID-Nr. 9105045593: Federal Intertrade Hong-Ru River Solar Cooker Project
The Federal Intertrade Hong-Ru River Solar Cooker Project is located in southern Pengyang County in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, P.R. China. The region is one of the poorest regions in the world. Severe desertification and the ecological environment there is vulnerable. Due to the high altitude, the rural Hong-Ru River region has a long sunny day, which makes it an ideal region in China for utilizing solar energy. The proposed project will install approximately 20,000 solar cookers for the rural residents. The rating power of each solar cooker is 654.5W and the total capacity of the proposed project is 13.1MW. The proposed project will enable the rural residents to efficiently substitute solar energy for a part of fossil fuel (coal) used in daily cooking and water boiling, avoiding CO2 emission that would otherwise be generated by fossil fuel consumption. The proposed project will promote the use of clean energy, educate and train the rural population on solar energy technology, and build awareness in environmental protection among the rural population. Those who will be directly benefited from the proposed project are approximately 20,000 low-income households or 80,000 villagers (average household has 4 people). It is estimated that 34,386 tCO2e emission reductions will be resulted per annum over the next 10 years.
