Collaboration | A Glimpse into Future Smart City: AEC Joins CIC’s Innovative Shenzhen Tour

Venturing into the future smart city of Shenzhen with the latest pioneering practices in green buildings, new energy, low-carbon technologies, and more! AECGroup was thrilled to join the insightful Shenzhen Tour organized by the Construction Industry Council to learn more about the latest green building innovative designs related to energy efficiency and sustainable built environment in Shenzhen. It was an eye-opening experience to say the least!

We paid a visit to Shenzhen Institute of Building Research Future Complex, which innovatively adopts a new building power distribution system of “PEDF (Photovoltaic, Energy, Direct current, Flexibility)”, which tries to form a “building virtual power station” that can effectively interact with urban power grid in buildings. We also visited the headquarters of BYD Company Ltd, a globally renowned new energy technology company, where we saw the BYD Cloud Bus, China's first unmanned straddle monorail line, in action! This marvelous innovation brings enormous potential of new energy technology in reducing carbon emissions and improving urban air quality, helping the nation to take a major leap into realizing carbon neutrality.

A huge thank you to CIC for this meaningful tour that allowed us to get an insider scoop of China’s latest development in sustainable green building and advanced new energy technology! We are looking forward to applying all that we’ve learnt and experienced to future projects and seizing more opportunities to maintain close collaborations with new energy corporations in the mainland to foster a world-class Greater Bay Area!
