With "low-carbon" as its main characteristic, the 2010 Shanghai World Expo was the first to officially propose the idea of a "low-carbon World Expo," and three projects in the Expo Park are taking the world by storm, according to a press conference on May 19. The cutting-edge low-carbon idea and advanced scientific and technological achievements were displayed in the Expo Park.

The three highlights on this Expo include the operations of the world's most new-energy vehicles, the operation of the building with the largest solar energy-collecting roof in the world and the world's most intensive application of the semiconductor lighting technology.

Cities are economic and cultural centers, accommodating massive numbers of vehicles and people. Along with social progress and the improvement of living standards, people have become more eager for the improvement of the environment, energy conservation and the protection of resources.

What the entire world is most concerned about is how to create eco-friendly cities, how to make the air clean and the water clear and how to reduce the emissions of pollutants including carbon dioxide. The entire world is making great efforts to replace old products that have great energy consumption and heavy pollution. Because travel, electricity and lighting are vital to people's daily lives, solving these problems will be a great progress.
A good life not only refers to the material and cultural life, but also the air quality and a favorable environment. The eco-friendly and low-carbon idea has become an important part of a beautiful life. Under the Shanghai World Expo's theme of "Better City, Better Life," the advanced technology and low-carbon idea are displayed in every aspect of the Shanghai World Expo, including the site selection of the Expo Park, the fireworks during the opening ceremony and the equipment, technology and materials of the pavilions.

The Shanghai World Expo is truly a low-carbon Expo. All of the exhibitors had full use of the most advanced scientific and technological achievements. Their recognition of environmental issues and their designs of various objects and buildings impressed visitors.

The three highlights fully display the theme "Better City, Better Life." Through mutual learning and communication, people hope that the world's advanced green technologies can be promoted, and the green idea can be spread throughout the world.
