BEIJING, Jan.19, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- AES China, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES) announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Comprehensive Cooperation with Chongqing Energy Investment Group Ltd. to form a joint venture that will develop, construct and operate a series of renewable and carbon reduction projects. The proposed joint venture includes approximately 400 MW of operational hydroelectric power projects, as well as a development pipeline of 700 MW of wind power projects and about one million tons of emission reductions through ventilation air methane projects. The projects are located throughout Chongqing, Xinjiang and other Western China provinces. “Our work with Chongqing Energy demonstrates how U.S. and Chinese companies can work together to promote renewable energy and carbon reduction projects,” said Paul Hanrahan, AES President and Chief Executive Officer. “Western China offers significant renewable energy sources, and by developing hydroelectric and wind, we will also contribute to this region’s economic development.” AES China and Chongqing Energy formalized their intent to form a joint venture during a signing ceremony in Washington, D.C., which was part of Chinese President Hu’s state visit to the U.S. Honored guests included Secretary Steven Chu, U.S. Department of Energy, Chinese Administrator Zhang Guobao, National Energy Administration, and Chinese Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang. The U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Commerce have been supportive of the U.S. China Energy Cooperation Program, which helped facilitate the formation of the joint venture between Chongqing Energy and AES China. The two companies began working together in November 2009 to develop China’s first commercial ventilation air methane project. Through the proposed joint venture, Chongqing Energy will hold 51 percent ownership while AES China will hold 49 percent ownership. The parties have targeted renewable projects that could reach a total capacity of around 2 GW over the next five years.
