Urumqi has split and regrouped 1,072 boilers to date, exceeding the 1,000 boiler goal the city set for pollution prevention.
A pilot project of wind power heating is now underway in Urumqi’s Dabancheng district.
Producing heat by boiling water with electricity is a very energy-saving and environmentally friendly heat generation method.
Urumqi has carried out supporting policies for clean heat supply equipment this year and intends to dedicate 900,000 square meters to electric heat generation.
About 184 million square meters are now supplied with electrically-generated heat and Urumqi downtown has been taking advantage of the system for a long time.
