China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) has entered into a project development agreement with the government of Laos to establish a renewable energy hub in northern Laos.


The hub will encompass wind, solar, hydro, and energy storage capabilities.


Its energy output will be integrated into an existing power line transferring electricity from Laos to China’s Yunnan province, as well as a planned 500kV power line connecting the two regions.


This agreement builds upon a memorandum of understanding signed between CGN and the Lao government in October 2022, furthering Laos’ commitment to exporting power to China as part of the Belt and Road Initiative.
