As China develops, its demand for energy also grows. At the China-Eurasia Expo in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, a large number of clean energy project contracts have been signed in the past two days. Our reporter Lin Nan visited one of the companies to find out what this demand brings to the industry.

29-year-old Guo Feng is facing a good career opportunity - he supervises an assembly of wind power generators for an important energy project in Xinjiang.

Guo Feng, Engineer, Assembly Factory, Goldwind Global, said, "This engine will leave the factory in a week once the installation is finished. It will be delivered to the Dabancheng Wind Field. The engineers will fix it with the base and sails before it comes into use."

China is experiencing great transformation in both industrial production and
residents' livelihood. The energy shortage has become a challenge for the country.

And this is just one of the 600 windmills which leave this factory every year. The market has never been so desperate for energy, especially from more environmentally-friendly sources like wind and solar power.

Li Heng, Manager of Assembly Factory, Goldwind Global, said, "We have seen a 100% increase of sales every year between 2000 and 2010. The government is regulating the market to ensure a healthy growth."

Lin Nan, Dabancheng, Xinjng, said, "Dabancheng is known as the city of wind in China. It has seen a rapid development of wind power energy in the past few decades. To achieve sustainable development, the Chinese government has encouraged the construction of more wind fields and power grids in this area."

According to the twelfth five year plan, wind power will be one of the key energy projects, in the hopes of keeping China’s economic lifeline flowing.
