In order to discuss the progress on and ensure the quality of implementation of the “Plus-energy building and blocks research” supported by GIZ “Supporting Jiangsu Low Carbon Development Project”, GIZ Jiangsu project organized a mid-term expert review meeting. The meeting took placed in Nanjing on June 11, 2020. At the meeting, the mid-term unit reports prepared by the project were discussed, as the leaders and experts inquired about the results and shared their interim reviews.
The participants of the meeting included representatives of the joint research team from the China Academy of Building Research, the Science and Technology and Industrialization Development Center of the Mo-HURD and the Science and Technology Development Center of Jiangsu HURD; as well as external experts such as Director Bao Yuqing from Beijing Building Energy Conservation Research Center, Chief Engineer Shen Hongwu from Shanghai Academy of Construction Sciences, Xu Jinfeng from Jiangsu Academy of Building Research, Professor Zhu Longbin of Nanjing University of Technology, and Professor Zhang Lun of Southeast University.
The participating experts provided pertinent professional evaluations and put forward suggestions on the setting boundaries for Plus-energy building, the introduction rate of green power, and the compulsory energy efficiency indicators for building envelopes, etc. It was agreed that the research on capacity-producing cities will no longer be the main content of this research. Mid-term results will be improved according to the expert reviews shared at the meeting.
After the meeting, the participants visited the ultra-low energy building of Gulou Hospital in Jiangbei New District and the future building of Jiangbei International Talent Apartment.
