Chindata, a rising data center service provider in China, has one the best data centers in China, with millions of servers storing data for social media giants. Of the four planning facilities, the completed ones are all using green power.
Once fully operational, the four data centers are expected to consume three billion kwh.
"We will use a hundred percent green energy," said Wang Jiahui, deputy manager of Chindata.
The benefits of green energy also reach local residents.
The government built a solar power station, benefiting families in poverty.
The solar power station can generate seven million yuan of profits every year. By the standard of three thousand yuan per family, it could help more than 2,000 families.
By 2018, China's installed renewable energy capacity reached 790 million kilowatts, accounting for 26 percent of the nation's total. The power generation reached 1.9 trillion. The growth of Grid-connected wind power has reached about 20 percent, and solar energy more than 50 percent. The rapid growth helps solve the problem of green energy consumption.
"The last 10 years have seen a 1.5-percent increase worldwide in greenhouse emissions. But China has managed to reduce its carbon intensity by over 45 percent since 2005, fulfilling its commitment to the world," said Dr. Tang Xinhua from the Institute of World Political Studies, China Institute of Contemporary International Relations.
Being a vital part of a new development philosophy that China is promoting, green development is taking root in the country.
