Successful Projects in the Energy Sector2003–2005Successful Projects in the Energy Sector2003–2005
 
Rationale:
Rapid economic growth in the People’s Republic o China inthe 1990s posed ormidable challenges to the power sector. To respond to severe power shortages and oset heavydependence on coalbased generation—along with itsaccompanying environmental problems—the governmentlaunched an energy conservation program under which coalconsumption was expected to decline as a consequence o accelerated hydropower development.
Expected Outcomes:
 The project aimed toconstruct a 240megawatt (MW) runoriver hydropowerscheme along the Yuanshui River o Lingjintan in HunanProvince, which would also serve as a reregulating stationor the 1,200MW Wuqiangxi hydropower scheme beingconstructed upstream; andsupport the institutional development o Hunan ElectricPower Company, and tari policy and energy conservation reorms in Hunan Province.
Accomplishments:
 The addition o a 270MW station (including one 30MW generating unit in addition to theeight planned originally) accelerated the development o Hunan Provinces hydropowerresources and helped relieve current and uture power shortages. As the system load growsand as the Yuanshui River hosts more upstream hydropower projects, the project’s operationis expected to become even more eective. The project has also enabled the Wuqiangxihydropower station to increase its peaking capability. With the Lingjintan station able toreregulate discharges rom the Wuqiangxi station, the latter can provide a total o 1,248gigawatthours per year o dependable energy or peaking, equivalent to the increasedavailability o more than 150 MW o peaking capacity.

Second Industrial Energy Eciency andEnvironment Improvement
Rationale:
In the early 1990s, energy intensity in the People’s Republico China was the highest among ADB’s developing membercountries. Over 75% o total primary energy consumptionwas accounted or by coal, which had serious impacts onthe environment. From that time, the government beganto implement programs to promote energy eciency andenvironmental improvement, targeting a 20% reductionin energy intensity between 1995 and 2001. In 1992, ADBhad provided a loan to nance investments in energyconservation and environmental improvements in thecement, ertilizer, iron, and steel subsectors.
Expected Outcomes:
 The project aimed toundertake policy reorms in energy conservation andensure continued progress in marketbased energypricing,nance investments in energy eciency and environmental improvements includingtechnological restructuring, andintroduce modern management systems.
Accomplishments:
All envisaged physical outputs o the project were achieved with actual productionexceeding designed capacity. All subprojects also achieved anticipated energy eciencyand environmental improvements. Given wide replication throughout the country o thenew production technologies and acilities adopted under the Huaxin Cement CompanyLimited, Jinhua Chemical (Group) Corporation, and Tianjin Soda Plant subprojects, as well asthe willingness o domestic commercial banks to lend or similar energy eciency initiatives,expected sectorwide demonstration eects were largely realized.
