Apple Partners With Goldwind In Four Chinese Wind Projects

Apple has struck an agreement with one of the world’s leading wind turbine manufacturers, Chinese-based Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology, for a 30% stake in four separate wind projects being developed in China.

Apple has struck an agreement with one of the world’s leading wind turbine manufacturers, Chinese-based Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology, for a 30% stake in four separate wind projects being developed in China.

Goldwind made the announcement last week. Specifically, according to Goldwind, “The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Beijing Tianrun New Energy Investment Co., Ltd. … and Apple agree to cooperate on wind power projects, and actively promote certain of the Company’s green power in local projects.”

Beijing Tianrun will transfer a 30% equity share of the Target Project Companies — subsidiaries set up to develop and operate a project — of four wind projects to Apple, which will make the four projects cooperative joint ventures between the two companies. The four companies/projects are as follows:

  • Nanyang Runtang New Energy Co., Ltd. in Henan Province
  • Zibo Runchuan New Energy Co., Ltd. in Shandong Province
  • Shuozhou Pinglu Sineng Wind Power Co., Ltd. in Shanxi Province
  • Qiaojia Tianqiao Wind Power Co., Ltd. in Yunnan Province

“We should help our become greener and more sustainable,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, according to Xinhua. “So, instead of giving them fish, we want to teach them how to fish.”

Apple has made much of its desire to go 100% renewable energy, and recently committed to RE100, The Climate Group’s 100% renewable energy campaign.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
