Clean Energy Asia LLC (CEA) was established in 2012 as a joint venture between Newcom LLC and SB Energy Corp., renewable energy arm of Japan’s Softbank Corporation.

CEA aims to act as a multifaceted clean energy company encompassing exploration, development and energy company portfolio management. Its main goals are to survey potential renewable energy power generation sites in Mongolia, expanding investment in and development of the renewable energy sector in Mongolia as well as exporting clean energy to other regions thus facilitating the creation of the Asia Super Grid.

As the world’s population grows, energy evolves as a global concern. Whether the focus is on energy security, climate change, or demand for natural resources, the world needs to use energy smarter and generate it from more clean and renewable sources. The World Energy Outlook predicts that in the next 25 years, energy consumption will increase by 60 percent. We want to provide customers with long-term electricity supply from clean sources, in Mongolia as well as in the greater Asia region. Mongolia is estimated by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to have good-to-excellent wind resources of over 2,550 terawatt-hours per year. When including moderate-level wind resources, or those suitable for rural power applications, this estimate increases to over 8,123 terawatt-hours per year.

CEA is a strong supporter of the Asia Super Grid Initiative, which aims to facilitate a regional electricity system based on renewable energy. National grids of Japan, Korea, China, Mongolia and Russia are envisioned to be included in the interconnection. It is anticipated that this will make Mongolia the region’s renewable energy leader. Mongolia has the resources and potential for this role and we are committed to realizing these potentials to power the growth and prosperity of the Asian continent.

"Tsetsii" Wind Farm


Clean Energy Asia LLC (CEA), as a special purpose vehicle company, is developing the 50MW (25 wind turbine generator (WTG) Tsetsii Wind Farm (Project). The Project lenders include the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The Project will be constructed under Lender’s strict environmental and social requirements.
The proposed Project site comprises approximately 7 km² of remote desert located approximately 495km and 22km south of settlement of Tsogttsetsii soum. In addition to the WTGs and their foundations, a network of around 18km of underground cabling will be installed to collect the energy generated by the WTGs and transmitted to an on-site substation. The on-site substation will transport the electricity generated via a 34km overhead transmission line to the main grid at Tavan Tolgoi Substation (TTSS). 
The Project aims to meet this demand in rural areas by reducing reliance on coal for electricity generation and helping to solve the issue during peak loads by utilizing the wind energy potential of Mongolia. The Project will have a positive benefit through the displacement of greenhouse gas emissions produced through thermal energy generation. Approximately 230,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions would be displaced as a result of the Project. There would be 180,000 tons of coal and 1.2 million tons of water saved through Project implementation. 
Production of electricity at the wind farm will overall help reduce the amount of imported electricity. The Project has indirect benefits of helping to facilitate further infrastructure development for railway, road and electrical infrastructure.
