Beijing will adopt clean energy methods to provide heating for more than 98 percent of urban areas in the city this winter season, according to the Beijing Commission of Development and Reform.

About 895 million square meters of urban areas now have access to clean-energy heating, 10 million sq m more than last winter, the commission said last week.

The commission said Beijing has been trying to improve energy consumption structure and ensure safe operation of heating systems by renovating old heating pipes and old residential communities, and applying smart heating management, as well as installing new heating facilities.

In past years, Beijing government has been making efforts, including changing coal-fired heating to coal-to-natural gas heating in entire city areas to cut carbon emissions in winter.

The commission said the authority will continue to utilize new technologies to fully embrace clean-energy heating while saving energy at the same time.
