    BP SOLAR AND AUSSIES WILL HELP CHINA BUILD SUN

    Like the weather, everybody is TALKING about China’s greenhouse gas emissions and its enormous reliance on coal-burning power plants. Now somebody is actually DOING something about them.

    This isn't going to put a big dent in China's world champion emission-spewing. But it isn't just cursing the darkness either. BP Solar and the Australian government are apparently willing to leave that to the Bush administration.

    WHO
    BP Solar (Brooke Miller, Austalasia regional director) ; City of Weihai, China; Austalian government

    100 megawatts is a long way from 1.8 gigawatts but it's a step in the right direction. (click to enlarge)

    WHAT
    Working with BP Solar’s Solar Cities campaign, the Chinese city of Weihai will become the largest solar-powered city in the world.

    WHEN
    A team including BP Solar will begin a feasibility study.

    Sun looks to be adequate. (click to enlarge)

    WHERE
    BP Solar has successfully developed Solar Cities projects in Blacktown (a western suburb of Sydney), in the South Australia city of Adelaide and in the Northern Territory city of Alice Springs.

    WHY
    - The Australian government will join BP Solar in supporting development of solar energy in Weihai.
    - The project aims to create a showcase of solar technologies.
    - It will deploy 100 megawatts of solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, and energy efficiency applications.

    QUOTES
    Brooke Miller, regional director, BP Solar Australasia: "As a direct consequence of the federal government's support for the Solar Cities concept, seven Australian cities will demonstrate how the power of the sun can address their peak energy challenges, reduce the requirement for investment in electricity infrastructure and cut emissions. We look forward to completing the feasibility study and adding the city of Weihai to this list."
