Baihetan Hydropower Station’s first batch of units will start generating electricity on June 28. Located downstream from the Jinsha River on the border of Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in southwest China, Baihetan will be the world’s second largest hydro-electric power station, after China’s Three Gorges Dam.

It is a major source of power for China’s west-to-east power transmission project and is expected to make a great contribution to the country’s efforts to peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
