Updated 2017-11-12 12:31:58 chinadaily.com.cn

Authorized by the United Nations, Panda Green Energy Group released the design of a customized Sustainable Development Goals power plant at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany on Thursday.

The design combines the UN logo, patterns of 17 sustainable development goals as well as the letters "SDG". The design will be presented with different colors of solar panels. According to the plan, the capacity will be 100 megawatts, occupying an area of approximately two million square meters.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was achieved by 193 UN member states at 2015 United Nations Sustainable Development Summit. The agenda, carrying profound influence, laid out 17 sustainable development goals and 169 targets, aiming to mobilize global efforts to end poverty, foster peace, safeguard the rights and dignity of all people and protect the planet.

Panda Green entered the strategic cooperation with World Wildlife Fund Beijing Office and Shenzhen One Planet Foundation to build a new solar power plant in the shape of "WWF" in near future.

"Energy is the golden thread that connects all the Sustainable Development Goals," United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told a high-level symposium on global energy interconnection at UN Headquarters in New York on Nov 1.

He said modern energy services are integral to poverty reduction, food security, public health and quality education for all. Moreover, they are the key to sustainable industrialization, healthier, more efficient cities and successful climate action.

Li Yuan, CEO of Panda Green, told China Daily the company will join hands with more best-in-class institutions such as WWF and the One Planet Foundation to build Panda Power Plants, serving as a role model in combating global climate change in the new era.

Panda Power Plants is the first panda-shaped solar power plant in the world. The capacity of its first-stage project is around 50 megawatts, equivalent to providing power for 120 Chinese families for a year.
