SHANGHAI - The under-construction Shanghai Disney Resort will adopt a new green technology to supply some of its energy, boosting the resort's environmentally friendly credentials, the Shanghai Disney Resort Management Company announced on Thursday.

The new technology using natural gas as the primary energy source will supply the resort with heating, power, cooling and compressed air via distributed energy systems, thereby increasing the overall energy efficiency of the resort three-fold, according to sources with the company.

The utilities will be co-generated by a combined cooling and heating plant, to be built and operated on the resort site by the Shanghai International Tourism and Resort Zone New Energy Company Limited, a joint-venture company owned by Huadian Fuxin Energy Corporation Limited; Shanghai Shendi (Group) Co Ltd and Shanghai Yiliu Energy Group Co Ltd.

The plant is a grid-tied, gas-fired power facility which co-generates cooling and heating via engine waste heat, and produces compressed air by self-generated electricity.

With a total investment of 520 million yuan ($84.8 million), the project will supply hot water and chilled water for heating and cooling, domestic hot water, and all compressed air needs for Shanghai Disney Resort's daily operation in the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly way.

The project is designed, constructed and operated by the Shanghai International Tourism and Resort Zone New Energy Company Limited, and will become operational in time to support the resort's opening, scheduled for the end of 2015.

Upon completion, the primary energy utilization rate of the project will be up to over 80 percent, much higher than that of conventional energy resources, which stands at around 45 percent, said Huo Guangzhao, vice president of the Huadian Fuxin Energy Corporation Limited.
