The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) granted China's first ever Leadership for Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) certification for the Shenzhen's Taige Serviced Residences. The commercial showcase project, administered by the Ministry of Construction, uses Trane's energy efficient heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. The announcement was made at the Second Sino-Foreign Green Real Estate Forum, co-hosted by the Ministry of Construction's Science and Technology Development Promotion Center and the Guangdong Real Estate Industry Association.

LEED certification is said to be a widely accepted standard for designing, operating and certifying green buildings. To gain LEED certification, Taige Serviced Residences and its developer China Merchants Property Development (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. (CMPD) chose Trane for high efficiency RTHD rotary chillers.

"The chillers, among other 'green' applications, are expected to help Taige Residences save 1.3 million kWh of electricity per year, resulting in total annual cost savings of $150,000," said Wang Hong, general manager, EMSI, a Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm that served as the project's sustainability consultant.
