China’s ’ internet+’ movement
Intense competition between Chinese cities. (Relating
to human resources and investment attractiveness...)
China's buildings account for 28 % of the country's total
energy use. This is an increase of eight percentage
points in ten years, which is primarily attributable to
the rapid increase in housing construction. Chinese
residential buildings usually have a short lifespan, are
poorly insulated and often have a lack of quality, based
on construction technology and building material, for
cost reasons. There is a huge demand for modern and
sustainable construction materials and methods to reduce the energy consumption of the
buildings and ensure a longer usage. [Advantage Austria, 2016]
