The first Low Carbon Tech Expo will be held on Nov 28 to 29 in Zhenjiang, in East China's Jiangsu province, to explore how to create a low-carbon city in China.

The expo invites companies, experts, scholars and entrepreneurs in low carbon industries to hold forums and summits, share clean technologies on cutting the emission of greenhouse gases and discuss how to build a low carbon economy.

Zhu Xiaoming, the mayor of Zhenjiang, said at a news conference in Beijing on Oct 18 that the low carbon expo aims to offer a platform to showcase low carbon technologies and products in China.

The expo will include forums, summits, exhibitions and roadshows focusing on low carbon technology and a clean economy.

As of now, more than 70 companies from home and abroad, including Aliyun and GE, have registered to attend the expo.

A typical industrial city, Zhenjiang was picked as one of the 42 pilot cities to promote a low carbon economy in 2012.

Since then, the city has implemented nearly 100 low-carbon projects every year and operated an online platform to control the emission of greenhouse gases, according to the mayor.

Due to its success in controlling emissions, Zhenjiang was the only Chinese city invited to attend the United Nations' climate change meet in Paris in December to share its experience in cutting the emission of greenhouse gases.
