Liuzhou Forest City is reputedly the first energy self-sufficient city in China and other cities in China are expected to follow suit.
For the first time in China and in the world, an innovative urban settlement will be built that can fight air pollution while preserving its biodiversity and relying fully on renewable energy. Liuzhou Forest City will be built in the north of Liuzhou, in the mountain area of Guangxi, in the southern part of China; in an area that covers 175 hectares along the Liujiang river.
Once completed, the new city will host 30,000 people, absorb almost 10,000 tons of CO2 and 57 tons of pollutants per year and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen.
The new green city, entirely wired, will be connected to Liuzhou through a fast rail line used by electric cars and will host various residential areas, commercial and recreational spaces, two schools and a hospital.
Liuzhou Forest City will have all the characteristics of an energy self-sufficient urban establishment: geothermal energy for interior airconditioning and solar panels over the roofs for collecting renewable energy.
