China is the world leader when it comes to solar capacity, so it is fitting that the country is also home to the world’s largest solar park. Huanghe Hydropower Hainan Solar Park, also known as the Golmud Solar Park, is a 2.3 GW solar project in the arid climate region of Qinghai Province. Huanghe is state-owned by Huanghe Hydropower Development and the project is aiming to reach a maximum solar capacity of 16 GW over the next few years. So far, more than USD2.2 billion has been invested into the solar park which was officially connected to the grid in 2020.
