Thirdly, in terms of the utilization of new energy, the residential projects fully utilize solar energy and air source energy for hot water systems. In addition, in line with the “Dual carbon” development strategy, combined with the idle roofs of commercial complexes, the largest distributed photovoltaic power generation project for commercial complexes in Shandong Province has landed here, which has passed evaluation from the China Electricity Council. The installed capacity of photovoltaics is 1,184 kW, and over a 25-year operation period, the total electricity generation is approximately 30.3 million kWh, saving about 22.33 million yuan in electricity costs and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by about 27,000 tons, which has significant significance in reducing carbon emissions.

Energy mix

The energy used in this project can be roughly divided into electrical energy, municipal heating energy, electricity, and cooking gas. The energy structure of the building operation is optimized by making full use of clean energy in the following ways: Firstly, 100% of the new projects are reserved for the installation of charging piles, and 10% of the charging piles are installed in place and encourage the use of clean energy. Secondly, 100% of the solar hot water system is installed during the construction of the project. Thirdly, the largest distributed photovoltaic power generation project in Shandong Province is built on idle rooftops. The installed capacity of photovoltaics is 1,184 kW, and over a 25-year operation period, the total electricity generation is approximately 30.3 million kWh, saving about 22.33 million yuan in electricity costs and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by about 27,000 tons, which has significant significance in reducing carbon emissions. Lastly, the energy-saving measures of the building are fully considered at the beginning of the planning and design; taking the passive energy-saving as the main principle, supplemented by the active energy-saving, Measures such as increasing insulation thickness, designing without cold and hot bridges, controlling air tightness, and adopting prefabricated construction methods are implemented to reduce building energy consumption. Active equipment such as fresh air ventilation systems with full heat recovery (for hardbound residence), ice storage cooling technologies (for shopping malls and office buildings), and high-performance water pumps and chillers are used to reduce energy consumption during the operational phase.
