Yingli Group, a leading solar energy company in China, has begun a project to build a polycrystalline silicon solar cell production base in China' s southern-most Hainan Province, with an expected annual production capacity of 100 mw.

The company, with an initial investment of 767 million yuan (113 million U.S. dollars) for its first stage, aims to have a complete photovoltaic industrial chain in the next three to five years, covering silicon material production, flywheel energy storage, international logistics, and solar energy research and development, among other areas, said Wang Xiangdong, general manager of the company.

Meanwhile, meteorological research indicates China also has a huge potential for wind power generation, with the potential generation volume of 200 billion kw for offshore and 2.38 million km for onshore wind power generation, said Shi Pengfei, deputy director of the China Wind Energy Association.
