To construct the Three Gorges Project and develop the Yangtze River, the China Three Gorges Project Corporation was founded on 27 September 2009, with the approval of the State Council. On 27 September 2009, it was renamed the China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG). CTG is a clean energy group focusing on large-scale hydropower development and operation. Its main businesses cover the construction, international investment and contracting, and development of wind power and solar energy among other renewable energies, the comprehensive development and utilization of water resources, as well as providing relevant professional technical services.
CTG assumed overall responsibility for the construction and operation of the Three Gorges Project. Upon authorization by the State, CTG developed, constructed, and operated cascade hydropower stations on the lower reaches of the Jinsha River, composed of four large hydropower stations (i.e. Xiluodu, Xiangjiaba, Wudongde and Baihetan). CTG also focuses its efforts on wind power, solar power, and other new energy sources as its second principal activity, and strives to lead the development of offshore wind farms. Today CTG's overseas investment and contracting business is present in over 40 countries and regions in Europe, America, Africa and Southeast Asia.
During the development and construction process of hydropower plants, CTG upheld the principle of "building a power station to stimulate the local economy, improve the local environment, and benefit the resettled residents" based on innovation, coordination, green development, opening-up, and sharing. In addition to flood control, water resource preservation, energy saving, emission reduction and other ecological benefits that can be expected out of a cascade development, CTG pursues social and economic benefits as well through engineering or technical measures and scientific regulation. We also maintain an active presence in the fields of targeted poverty alleviation, and provide assistance to Xinjiang and Tibet among others. CTG has coordinated hydropower development with efforts to provide material benefits to resettled local populations, in order to protect the ecological environment, and to promote local economic and social progress, with the goal of sharing the achievements of reform and development with a larger population.
