China’s initiative to build vast solar and wind farms in wilderness areas could soon be bearing fruit. If plans proceed on schedule, the first kilowatt of renewable electricity under the wilderness effort would be injected into the grid before the end of this year. Construction has already "commenced fully” on the first batch of such projects totaling almost 100 gigawatts (GW), said the National Energy Administration (NEA) in its renewable energy briefing early this month. The earliest of these batch-1 projects broke ground in late October 2021. Beijing had declared these as solid proof of China’s "determination to walk the talk” on its emissions peaking and carbon neutral pledges.
