Environmental Action Goals

 

Setting Action Goals

At the January 2012 Mayors Conference held in Ulaanbaatar, it was decided that member cities would set a quantifiable goal for the promotion of the efficient use of energy and heat, as well as for public education on energy conservation, and that cities announced the progress toward meeting their goals at the Sapporo Working-Level Officials Meeting planned for 2013. Cities announced the final project results in January 2014 at the Hwacheon Mayors Conference.

 

 

Action Goals of Seven Member Cities

Changchun, China – By 2015, urban environment and infrastructure is to be improved, and living conditions enhanced.

Jiamusi, China – Wind power generation facility to be installed (870,000kW).

Maardu, Estonia – Waste burning facilities to be constructed to protect the environment and increase electricity generation by 17MW and heat generation by 50MW.

Sapporo, Japan – Introduction of solar power generation systems in municipal facilities including schools: 180 locations – a total of about 2,600 kW.

Kaunas, Lithuania – Lighting network to be upgraded and modernized by reducing the lighting power by 50 percent at night from 2010 to 2015.

Hwacheon, Korea – Reduction of use of electricity by 5 percent each year in public buildingsduring peak-use.

Taebaek, Korea – Increase in production of new and renewable energy by 360 percent between 2011 – 2014.
