Putuo’s first “Zero Carbon Park” nears completion

January 29, 2023 |

The first “Zero Carbon Park” in Putuo District will be ready by the end of this June.

But what is a “Zero Carbon Park” and how is it built? Green plants, and photovoltaic and emission reduction through plants, are the answers.

Located beside the Middle Ring Road, the park occupies an area of 4.7 hectares. As one of the supporting construction project of the “Green Technology Model” of the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region, the park has infused a series of low carbon ideas for starters.

This includes the photovoltaic electroplax at the parking lot and over the roof of the buildings in the park, which will meet its demand for production capacity and electricity consumption.

One of the spotlights of the park is the rest station on the north side. The streamline of the building itself effectively uses the advantage of natural ventilation and sunshine.

For example, daylight would be fully utilized through the curtain and be transformed into electricity energy via photovoltaic electroplax, dropping the building’s energy consumption and carbon emission.

The green scenery of the park also refers to the principles of the ecological system. Apart from various plants, the 1-hectare man-made lake is a flowing water area through the combination of emergent, floating and submerged plants inside.

In fact, the “Zero Carbon Park” perfectly reflects the goal of “Green Carbon” of Putuo’s Taopu area and would promote such development in its neighborhood.
