12-15-2010 10:30 BJT

BEIJING, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- China Longyuan Power Group, the country's largest wind power producer, said its installed wind power capacity had reached 5.51 million kilowatts as of November, after seeing an annual rise of 76.2 percent during the past five years.

With its current capacity, the company was expecting to produce 10 billion kilowatt-hours (kwh) of electricity from wind this year, a company statement Tuesday obtained by Xinhua said.

Further, the company's newly installed wind power capacity this year is expected to reach 2 million kilowatts, the statement said, while forecasting its total capacity to hit 11 million kilowatts by 2012, 18 million kilowatts by 2015, and 30 million kilowatts by 2020.

China Longyuan is a unit of China Guodian Corporation, and it was listed in Hong Kong in December 2009 as the first wind power generator from China's mainland to have shares offered to the public.

China is seeking to use more clean energy to reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment, a program that is driving wind, solar and hydropower construction booms.

The country plans to raise its non-fossil fuel use to 15 percent of its total power consumption by 2020 as its total wind power generation is expected to soar to 281 billion kwh by 2020, from 26.9 billion kwh in 2009.
