Damn! Another 1.4 GW Wind Project in Inner Mongolia

Should be connected to the grid by 2014, says this article at Recharge. Thanks to to this retweet by Tegshjargal for the link.

Inner Mongolia already has installed the most wind in China, with 17.6 GW at the end of 2011.

At that pace, China will be able to meet most of their monster 5,000 TWh a year demand from their own Gobi desert project before Softbank and Newcom get the Mongolian side going.

Right now, the Mongolian side is certainly losing to China by a large margin. On the other hand, Mongolia does have the largest wind resources in Asia, with about 1.1 TW of potential, beating even China in that respect.
