Sustainability Evaluation of Low Carbon Technology and Transition Plan of Building Industry in Chongming, Shanghai
In order to meet the GHG reduction and sustainable goals in industry development, we need those strategies that are not only reducing GHG emissions but also not compromising other economic, environmental and social priorities. The low carbon and sustainable requirements in industry development are analyzed by reviewing the existing related researches. Multi-Attributive Assessment method is selected as the most appropriate one for the study. Indicators and utility value functions of the assessment system are accordingly set up. Building industry in Chongming, Shanghai is analyzed as case study. Most potential technologies and their preferential order are figured out after evaluation. CO2 emission reduction requirement in 2015 is worked out as 0.68 t for low carbon scenario and 1.36t for ideal scenario. Required building area is then calculated. Results show the low carbon scenario is possible to meet if the existing and new construction buildings can well apply the selected technologies.
