World Expo Uses LEDs And Solar Energy To Go Green

Green cutting-edge technologies used or showcased at the Expo will be widely introduced into real life says the Shanghai Daily

Officials from Shanghai Science and Technology Commission yesterday said that the World Expo in Shanghai will boost the concept of ecology and environmental protection and stimulate scientific research and technology development.

"Green, low-carbon and environmental protection are the themes of the World Expo," said Shou Ziqi, Director of the commission.

New technologies such as a TD-LTE (time division-long term evolution), which is 40 times faster than any existing 3G network, the use of new energy vehicles and LED (light emitting diode) technology are expected to be widely adopted after their successful use at the Expo.

"The whole process of Expo designing, construction, operation and after-Expo use are all in line with the concept."

Some 200,000 lights - 80 percent of night lighting inside the Expo site use LED technology and the use of solar energy, has resulted in a 30% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions (from vehicles) inside the Expo zone.
