Edited and Translated by Han Shasha, People's Daily Online

The construction of an integrated solar combined-cycle (ISCC) station began yesterday in Northwest Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.

With a total investment of nearly 2.3 billion yuan, the Hanas New Energy Group plans to complete the new project in October 2013, with a goal of generating 92.5 megawatts.

The project represents Asia's first integrated solar combined-cycle (ISCC) station. And it will set a model for the development of renewable energy in both China and Asia.

Recently, most large-scale solar projects are put into construction. Meng Xiancan, vice president of China Renewable Energy Society, said that the solar power plants in China are mainly located in the western areas of Qinghai and Ningxia. However, the electricity demands in these areas are less. Once the project is completed, the Hanas New Energy Group should pay attention to means of exporting the energy.
