On August 22 and September 4, two brainstorming workshops took place in Nanjing, Jiangsu province. The GIZ Jiangsu project, Jiangsu Construction Modernization and Innovation Alliance, China University of Mining and Technology (CUMT), and Jiangsu Jianlian Building Industry Modernization Research Institution (JCMRI) attended this meeting. The attendees had an active and result-oriented discussion.
The brainstorming revolved on the one hand around the demands of construction industrialization for the eastern Province of Jiangsu and, on the other hand,, around industrial resources and project opportunities of the participating parties, and the demonstration effect of cooperation have been discussed. The meeting reached the following consensus on cooperation:
- The GIZ Jiangsu project, JCMRI, and CUMT will jointly participate in the construction and implementation phase of the 2020 International Solar Decathlon Competition, which will take place in Zhangjiakou, Hebei province, in September 2021. Zhangjiakou will be one of the locations of the 2022 Winter Olympics, with all skiing events taking place here. GIZ and JCMRI will provide technical and financial support for the competition to help the CUMT’s participating teams complete the construction of the competition projects. The competition buildings will be located in the Sustainable Eco Demonstration Area of Zhangjiakou, which will provide services to the 2022 Winter Olympics, thus the 2020 International Solar Decathlon Competition has a high demonstration effect. GIZ will provide technical support for Plus Energy and prefabricated building solutions, and JCMRI will recommend prefabricated construction enterprise and partially sponsor the construction process.
- Based on the cooperation in the 2020 International Solar Decathlon Competition, the three parties will attempt to establish a research branch with the topic of “Building Industrialization” in Xuzhou, a northern city of Jiangsu Province, as part of the low-carbon development platform of Jiangsu Province planned by the GIZ Jiangsu project.
- The GIZ Jiangsu project and JCMA are cooperating to hold a Sino-German prefabricated construction industry technologies and products exchange meeting at the end of 2020 or beginning of 2021.
The cooperation in the Solar Decathlon Competition will be carried out this year, and other cooperation will be implemented gradually in early 2021.
