Energy Conservation in Government

Last updated: 5 November 2017
To improve the energy efficiency of government institutions during the 11th Five-Year Period, China required several reforms of government operation: - During reconstruction of government buildings - including heating, air-conditioning and lighting systems - 20 percent of the total construction area must meet the national building energy efficiency standard. - Government procurement must promote high-efficiency products and publish their list. - Government vehicle purchases must focus on low-oil-consuming vehicles. With these mandates, the Chinese state aims to save energy by 10% per unit construction area and per capita by 2010, relative to the baseline year of 2002.
