Supporting the climate-friendly development of Jiangsu Province – Phase III

As of: October 2021

With its nationally determined contribution (NDC), China has committed to achieving its CO2 emissions target and a transformation to a climate-friendly economy by 2030. The Jiangsu region is seeking to achieve this target even earlier, but to do so it needs support in planning integrated energy systems. The project supports the “Jiangsu Development and Reform Commission” in developing holistic energy strategies that are adapted to the needs of cities and industrial sectors. The focus of the project is on consulting services for integrated, innovative energy systems, particularly with regard to energy and material flows, increased energy efficiency and renewable energies. In its third phase, the project aims to make the results of the two previous projects sustainably accessible. To achieve this, a local institute will be set up to further develop and disseminate experience.

State of implementation/results

  • The project has completed the following studies and guides:
    • "Climate education in formal and non-formal school education: A compendium of climate change teaching ideas from Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, for Jiangsu, China", published in December 2020; stakeholders involved: artefact gGmbH for global learning and local action. This guide will be used in pilot training sessions in primary and middle schools in 2021.…
    • "Plus Energy Building and Community/Urban Areas", published in November 2020 (so far only available in Chinese):…
    • In July 2020, the project commissioned the study "Three-year Action Plan of Climate Change in Suzhou (2021-2023)" to support the future Emissions Peak concept of Suzhou city. The study was completed in November 2020 and presented to the Suzhou Department of Ecology and Environment (DEE).
    • The study "Green Development of Energy Intensive Industry" was published in April 2020. Stakeholders involved: Nanjing Engineering Consulting Center, only available in Chinese, (see link 1)
  • On 17 Nov 2020, the first course of the training series "Climate Protection Planning Management-Urban Response to Climate Chane" was organised at Nanjing Tech University, attended by 54 undergraduate students of Urban Design. The aim is to raise the awareness of future urban design personnel in dealing with climate change and to teach the basics of climate protection.
  • On 07.11.2020, the final workshop for the study on "Plus Energy Building and Community/Urban Areas" took place with representatives of the research group in Shanghai. The research group consists of experts from the Jiangsu China Academy of Building Research, Shanghai Academy of Building Research, Science and Technology Innovation Center of Huadong Construction Group, Henan Wufang Construction Group and Tongji University
  • From 10 to 11 October 2020, the technical planning workshop for the concept of the 2020 International Solar Decathlon took place, at which the project presented German experience and expertise in the field of plus-energy buildings.The "Strategic Hydrogen Development Plan for the Changzhou Binjiang Economic Development Zone" was published in April 2020, involved actors: h2-netzwerk-ruhr e.V. (see link 3)
  • On the 19. and 20. of April 2019 the project and its partners, the Jiangsu Province Construction Industry Modernization and Innovation Alliance (JCMA) and the Jiangsu Provincial Housing Industry Promotion Center, hosted the "8th International Pre-fabricated Building Forum and Exhibition”. The topic of the event was modular, integrated house construction technology. The event counted 450 Chinese and international participants, thus German approaches could be conveyed to a large audience.
