Changzhou is one of the first batch of cities in Jiangsu province that carries out the demo project of energy efficiency and renovation of existing buildings. In the three years from 2015 to 2018, 20 renovation projects were carried out, with a total renovation area of 679,900 square meters. On top of the demo project, Changzhou also actively explores to make further innovations and upgrade functions of the existing buildings, so as to reach the green building standards. This year, Changzhou has 2 projects successfully approved by the province government, and by the approval, the 2 projects are funded a total of RMB 4 million from the provincial fiscal incentive funds.
The implementation of the green projects is guided by the principle of green development and low-carbon development and applies innovative green building development modes. And as it shifts focuses from “construction of new buildings” to “renovation of old buildings”, it further enables the city to play out the energy-efficient potential of existing buildings, enhances the energy utilization efficiency and the operation management level of the existing buildings, and make the city go “green”.
