Da Nang chosen for low-carbon city project

2011-09-16 (GMT + 7)

APEC energy and transport ministers have selected Vietnam’s Da Nang city, together with Thailand’s Koh Samui and Peru’s San Borja, for a green model city project.

The project is aimed at reducing CO2 emissions from public transportation and households business by using environmental technologies. It also aims to promote the use of solar, wind and other renewable energies more effectively by introducing smart-grid technology.

As scheduled, the APEC ministers will finalise the decision in October. Last year, APEC designated Tianjin, China, as its first low-carbon model city project.
