Beijing builds energy-saving projects for 2008

Beijing has initiated a number of projects using solar energy and recycled water for the 2008 Olympic Games, said an official from the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee.
A 6,000-square metre solar heating system funded partly by Italy is currently under construction. It will provide hot water for 16,000 athletes and save 2,000 tons of coal a year.

Other projects include a heating and cooling project for a 410,000-square metre building that uses recycled water. It is the largest of its kind in China and is expected to save 6,000 tons of coal a year.

Beijing Olympic village will have a 500-kilowatt solar power station and use motor vehicles that have zero or low emissions. Three hundred low-emission engines have already been installed in Beijing buses.
