The Innovation Park @Gui’an is being developed under the themes of energy, LID mode, smart city and cultural inheritance. It is intended to demonstrate over twenty plots, a variety of innovative products and building systems to supply efficient and sustainable new-pattern urbanization.
The Innovation Park will achieve real-time monitoring, smart controls and long-distance assessment to create an exemplar smart city, combining green ecological sensors and an intelligent management centre together with other software and hardware. Gui’an Innovation Park is not only an expo for green technologies but also the authoritative assessment base for new technologies and the standard-setting organization for China green building and community standards in the future.

A grounds up approach to sustainable development
One of the key objectives of Gui’an Park will be to address issues around climate change. A ‘Sponge City’ will be created on the park, one that has good flexibility in adapting to environmental changes and responding to natural disasters. When it rains, Sponge City can absorb, store, seep and purify water, and release the stored water when it is necessary. Gui’an Innovation Park will make full use of such strategies and techniques.
