Yalong River Hydropower Development Company Ltd announced as a supporting partner at the World Hydropower Congress

Yalong River Hydropower Development Company, Ltd has been announced as a supporting partner at the 2023 World Hydropower Congress, taking place from 31 October to 2 November in Bali, Indonesia.

Yalong Hydro is a state-owned hydropower developer and owner based in Chengdu, China. Authorised by the Chinese government, the company is solely responsible for development and operation of the planned 22 cascade stations on the river of Yalong with a total installed capacity of 30 GW.

As the Sichuan province’s largest power producer, the company is a massive energy provider in China with an installed capacity of clean energy exceeding 20 GW and annual power generation of nearly 90 billion kw/h. Currently, Yalong Hydro has commissioned seven large hydropower plants: Jinping-I, Jinping-II, Guandi, Ertan, Tongzilin, Lianghekou and Yangfanggou and three are under construction: Kala, Mengdigou and Yagen-I.  

After the full commission of the Lianghekou Hydropower Plant in 2022, the Yalong River Valley boasts three controlling reservoirs, Lianghekou, Jinping-I and Ertan, providing local communities in Sichuan with electricity and energy security during dry seasons.  

Other projects include the Labashan and Dechang wind farms and the Kela photovoltaic (PV) power station, the latter of which is the world’s largest hybrid solar-hydropower plant.  

“The Yalong River Valley is abundant with not only hydropower but also wind and solar power resources. To meet Sichuan’s growing power demand and China’s ambitious national and provincial fourteenth five-year plans, Yalong Hydro is working to build the world's largest integrated base of green, clean and renewable energy with a capacity exceeding 80 GW.”

Yalong Hydro commented on becoming supporting partners: “We look forward to connecting with other hydropower developers and showcasing our experience with variable renewable energy development throughout Sichuan at the World Hydropower Congress.”
