  Green Olympics

  All domestic relay torches will use hydrogen fuel

  "Green is one of the goals of this Winter Olympics." Yu Hong said that in order to achieve the carbon neutral goal of the Beijing Winter Olympics, the Zhangbei flexible DC power grid project was implemented, and the wind and solar energy production in Zhangbei The green electricity is imported into Beijing.

During the event, all venues for the Beijing Winter Olympics will achieve 100% green power supply.

  The National Speed ​​Skating Stadium, Wukesong Sports Center and other venues have selected a carbon dioxide transcritical refrigeration system, the temperature difference of the ice surface is controlled within 0.5 ℃, and the carbon emissions are close to zero.

At the same time, the integrated cooling and heating design is used to recycle the cooling waste heat, and the energy efficiency is increased by 30%-40%.

  During the competition, more than 700 hydrogen-fueled buses will provide transportation services in Yanqing and Zhangjiakou. The trial-produced hydrogen fuel cell emergency power generation vehicle replaces the diesel generator vehicle and has been tested in the National Speed ​​Skating Stadium and the National Alpine Ski Center.

  Yu Hong revealed that all the relay torches in the Beijing Winter Olympics will use hydrogen fuel.

Degradable tableware produced from renewable resources such as corn, potato and straw as raw materials will replace plastic products to provide relevant services for the Winter Olympics.

  Broadcast technology

  Free perspective allows spectators to choose the viewing angle and timing

  Broadcasting is indispensable in the modern Olympics.

Yu Hong introduced that the Beijing Winter Olympics will have 5G signal coverage and a new mode of broadcasting.

On the basis of the test competition, the cloud broadcasting technology will cooperate with the Olympic Broadcasting Service Company (OBS) during the competition to provide bullet-making time in the "Slope Obstacle Skills of Yunding Ski Resort" project.

  The video service system for the press conference of the Beijing Winter Olympics will add audio and video content for press releases on the basis of traditional text information services.

The 8K HD OB van recorded and broadcast the short track speed skating event in October, which lasted 22 hours.

  In addition, the free viewing angle allows the audience to freely choose the viewing angle and time on the screen; the panoramic picture guide of the stadium can browse the stadium online; the accurate indoor navigation helps the audience quickly reach the seating area of ​​the stadium; the upcoming 8K channel will allow Spectators have the opportunity to watch the 8K game on TV during the game, and also have the opportunity to see the ultra-high-definition picture through the 8K terminal in the Winter Olympic venues, city squares and other places.

  Artificial snowmaking will not affect regional water safety and ecological environment

  Zhao Weidong, Director of the Press and Propaganda Department of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee, introduced that the Beijing Winter Olympics snow event competitions are mainly located in the Yanqing and Chongli mountainous areas.

On November 6, Beijing ushered in the early snow of this winter, and Zhangjiakou also ushered in widespread snowfall.

According to observations, the amount of snowfall in Yanqing and Zhangjiakou has reached the magnitude of a blizzard.

"Using this round of cooling and snowfall weather, the Yanqing Competition Area Alpine Ski Center and Zhangjiakou Competition Area will actively carry out artificial snowmaking operations."

  Zhao Weidong said that in order to ensure the quality of snow used in competitions, artificial snowmaking is basically used in major international events.

Artificial snowmaking will not have an impact on regional water safety and ecological environment.

According to data from the Beijing Water Affairs Bureau, the water demand during the Winter Olympic Games accounts for 1.6% of the current total water consumption in Yanqing District and 4‰ of the local water resources in Yanqing District; the post-match water demand accounts for 2.3% of the current total water consumption in Yanqing District. %, accounting for 6‰ of the local water resources.

Therefore, there is no shortage of water resources in the Yanqing area, and the water consumption during and after the Winter Olympics will not affect the water safety of the Yanqing area.

During the game, the water demand of Zhangjiakou competition area accounted for 9.8% of the total water consumption of Chongli District and 2.8% of the water resources of Chongli District.

The above data shows that Zhangjiakou residents' domestic water will not be affected by snowmaking.

Zhangjiakou City has implemented the Yunzhou Reservoir Water Diversion Project. Since its completion, the project has transferred a total of 5.216 million cubic meters of water to Chongli District, effectively reducing the amount of groundwater extraction in Chongli District and preventing the decrease of groundwater level.

  In addition, ski resorts prioritize the use of collected and stored natural precipitation and surface runoff as artificial snow-making water sources.

The artificial snowmaking system adopts the world's most advanced high-efficiency water-saving artificial snowmaking equipment and intelligent snowmaking system, which can maintain the best snowmaking efficiency according to the dynamics of the external environment and save water.

Through real-time monitoring of weather and other conditions, choose the most suitable conditions to start the snow machine to avoid the waste of water resources caused by snow making.
