Beijing E-Town's solar energy success reduces emission

Apr. 2, 2012 (China Knowledge) - Beijing E-Town, a triple-A rated industrial park, saw the output of electricity from rooftop solar power projects reached 10.33 gigawatt hours (GWh) in 2011, according to figures from its Development and Reform Bureau.

Beijing E-Town, one of the country's first demonstration areas for solar photovoltaic power generation and the only such facility in Beijing, so far has 9.24 megawatt (MW) of installed solar power capacity covering an area of 172,800 square meters in seven enterprises and two industrial parks within its area.

BOE Technology Group Co Ltd<000725><200725>, the largest liquid crystal display or LCD panel producer in China, and Beijing Jingyuntong Technology Co Ltd<601908>, the largest manufacturer of mono-crystalline silicon and poly-crystalline silicon ingot furnaces in China, are the top two solar power consumer.

The production plant of BOE Technology has installed solar power capacity of 5 MW covering 115,000 sq m. The project is able to produce 6 GWhs of electricity annually, which accounted for 20% of the plant's non-productive power consumption. The solar power project of Beijing Jingyuntong Technology could supply nearly 25% of the company's non-productive power consumption.

The rooftop solar power projects in Beijing E-Town not only help the development area save electricity but also reduce emissions. In 2011, the electricity from these solar projects helped to save 2,952 metric tons of standard coal and reduce emission of 9,977 metric tons of carbon dioxide, 243 metric tons of sulfur dioxide and 2,018 metric tons of dust.

By the end of 2012, Beijing E-Town aims to increase its installed solar power capacity to 20 MW. The area expects its solar power output to reach 20 GWhs this year, thus saving 7,200 metric tons of standard coal, reducing emission of 19,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, more than 60 metric tons of sulfur dioxide and 50 metric tons of other oxides.
