History

Adhering to its green development ideal, Hanas Group develops the clean energy of natural gas and the new energy of wind power and solar power, in an effort to empower the transformation of China’s energy structure, for a cleaner, greener and better future.

Originated in Ningxia, Hanas Group started with Yinchuan Natural Gas Corporation founded in 1999, which had grown strong foundations in conjunction with top-level partners. The Group was officially founded up in 2003, and since then has developed into one of China’s largest energy groups.

From a city gas company with just a dozen of people at its inception to an international group company with a thousand employees, Hanas Group grows exponentially along with the thriving Chinese economy, now the second largest of the world.

Through relationships with leading international technology partners and new energy providers; the support of the CPC Municipal Committee and the Government of Yinchuan; the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region and China’s central leadership; Hanas Group has moved toward its objective to be a leader in renewable energy in the region and throughout China.

Invoking the future

Hanas co-operated with Ernst & Young, McKinsey, PWC, SIA Partners, Wood Mackenzie and other consultancies, researching the need for development of new energy sources in China. The results of this research indicate that new energy and clean energy will be the primary energy sources for a sustainable future.

Hanas will continue to focus on these power sources in future, changing the way people use energy, and contributing to the transformation of China.

The Hanas philosophy is “leading society to embrace new sustainable energy forms” by:

  • encouraging staff to work hard
  • using appropriate technologies
  • funding research and development
  • making a long-term change to society
