Example of Wuhan site
Wuhan is the world's first "green" transformer plant and has been presented with several awards for its contribution to the environment:
- Investment Association of China's 2011 National Investment Projects Excellence Award (2011)
- Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certificate from the US Green Building Council (2009)
Among other initiatives, the site has installed a rain water collection and storage system. The collected water is used for landscape watering and cleaning (such as roads, cars, etc.). In addition, waterless amenities are largely deployed, such as saving fresh water for second use (e.g. toilet flushing). All these efforts contributed to saving 5,100 m3 of water per year.
