The Chinese province of Jiangsu has approved 24 offshore wind power projects with a total capacity of 6.7 gigawatts (GW).

The country's state press agency Xinhua reported citing sources with the State Grid Jiangsu Electric Power Company that the newly approved projects, with total investment of 122.29 billion yuan (around 18 billion U.S. dollars), are part of Jiangsu's 10 GW-level offshore wind power plan known as "Three Gorges on Sea."

All the projects have been given the greenlight and are expected to be completed before the end of 2020.

According to the report, China aims to build seven large-scale wind power generation bases in Gansu, Xinjiang, Hebei, Jilin, Inner Mongolia and Jiangsu provinces in 2020 in an attempt to boost clean energy consumption.
