The project will develop and demonstrate a low-carbon, energy-efficient district heating, cooling, and power production and distribution system in eight locations in Qingdao city. Instead of coal, the system will use natural gas, solar thermal, shallow-ground geothermal, and waste heat recovered from industrial plants as its energy sources. The project will also demonstrate a low-temperature district energy distribution network and combine it with a smart energy management system. The project system is expected to lower energy intensity by 40% and carbon intensity by 64% from the averages achieved by comparable standard systems now in use in the northern People's Republic of China (PRC).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
