TÜV Rheinland and BRE Award CGDG China's first Net-zero Carbon Certification

By: TUV Rheinland
TSUEN WAN, Hong Kong - May 4, 2022 - PRLog -- Recently, TÜV Rheinland Greater China (TÜV Rheinland) and the British Research Establishment (BRE) granted the Certification of Excellence for net-zero carbon buildings and the Certification of Excellence for low-carbon operations to Luneng Lingxiu Eastern 3rd Block and the A3 Commercial Complex, Lingxiu City in Jinan respectively, which were developed and constructed by Shandong Genfu Company subordinated to China Green Development Group (CGDG), marking the birth of China's first net-zero carbon residential building project and commercial project.

The certification is a quantitative verification and management system evaluation of carbon emissions in the whole life cycle of buildings based on the British Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) issued by BRE, the International Verification Standard for Greenhouse Gas Emission, the Chinese Greenhouse Gas Emission Verification Guidelines, and the domestic and foreign carbon footprint calculation standards for buildings.

The Lingxiu Eastern 3rd Block project has minimized the carbon emissions during building materials production and building construction through the application of green building materials, 100% prefabricated construction of residential areas, green construction management and other measures. By adopting high-performance envelope structure (thermal performance increased by 20%) and high-performance exterior windows (K value≤1.2), the comprehensive energy saving rate of the building has reached 80%. Active energy saving such as central air conditioning through the whole house and fresh air total heat recovery system is adopted to reduce carbon emissions during operation, and building energy consumption is reduced through 100% installation of solar or air energy, 100% reservation of charging pile installation conditions, etc.

The A3 Commercial Complex, Lingxiu City tries to be aligned with international advanced technologies, focusing on all-round energy conservation and emission reduction, and more than 100 green building technologies are adopted such as LOW-E insulating glass curtain wall, building automatic control system, high-performance water pump chiller, heat recover units, etc. This includes comprehensive application of zoning, timing and induction in energy-saving control strategies during operation, thus reducing the energy consumption of lighting by more than 30%. Energy consumption monitoring platform is established for regular energy consumption analysis and continuous optimization of the low-carbon operation system.

In the future, TÜV Rheinland and BRE will provide customized net-zero carbon emission solutions for more new buildings and existing construction projects, and jointly promote the low-carbon and sustainable development of China's construction industry to contribute to the goals of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality.
