As one of the energy bases of China, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has participated in a series of developing programs, such as The Western Development (2000), The Belt and the Road (2014), and The Global Energy Internet Strategy (2015), which signify that China places considerable importance to the sustainable development of the energy industry in Xinjiang. As an important part of the energy industry in Xinjiang, the emerging wind power industry in this region has developed rapidly in
more » ... ed rapidly in recent years. However, many problems have emerged, such as the abandoned wind power rationing, which seriously restricts the healthy development of the wind power industry. In this study, we introduce the development of the renewable energy industry and analyze the wind energy resources in Xinjiang. We mainly investigate the development situation and existing problems in the wind power industry. Then we focus on the problem of wind power curtailment, analyze the causes, and propose measures and strategies to alleviate this problem. Our findings will contribute to the sustainable development of the wind power industry in Xinjiang.
