When it comes to renewable energy integration with grid, China has stringent requirements which warrant requirement of STATCOM/SVG with every wind and solar plant. This has been made possible by local FACTS manufacturers who are offering cheaper solutions to Chinese renewable energy developers. MingYang Smart Energy was able to put four STATCOM units into operation before the end of 2020 for one of the large wind farm projects i.e., Huaneng Inner Mongolia Udalai Xilinhot 475 MW wind power project. With this installation, MingYang alone has contributed to more than 500 renewable energy projects by the end of 2020.
