The urban project for China's Tianjin is divided into two phases. Phase 1 aims to make the existing equipment of buildings and plants in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA) more energy efficient. Based on the knowledge gained in Phase 1, Phase 2 will involve the formulation of basic plans to build a smart community in the industrial complex.

This industrial complex development project follows the Chinese government's five-year plan. The principal objectives of the plan are to abolish income disparities and reduce CO2 emissions, and in order to achieve the former goal, the government aims to increase the minimum wage level by at least 13% annually to boost consumption. The project constitutes part of a plan to build in the eastern, central, western, and northeastern parts of the country several urban areas consisting of key large cities and medium-sized and small cities as the government continues to propose well-balanced regional development in order to achieve its goal.

As TEDA involved the development of new industrial parks, Toshiba carried out a feasibility study for projects with these industrial parks in mind. In these industrial parks it is necessary to develop smart communities as well as attract businesses from overseas. For this reason, even if smart communities are created, the goal cannot be achieved if it is costly for businesses to operate in the industrial park. In order to provide solutions that achieve both a low-carbon society and the profitability of business, Toshiba is considering high-efficiency cogeneration systems to enable the respective requests of the government, businesses, and residents to be met.

Many similar projects are planned for all areas of China, and with the Tianjin project as a starting point, Toshiba Group is considering applying the expertise it gains therefrom to various other regions of the country.
