Alibaba Xixi Park runs with 100% digitalized operations. Based on this, Energy Expert helps the park control the air conditioning through deep reinforcement learning algorithms to cut power consumption by 17% and achieves a 95% accuracy in electricity consumption forecast based on the accuracy load forecasting model, helping the park balance annual power consumption. The park also applies a non-busy time energy optimization strategy to the daily operations through Energy Expert and successfully reduces 30% of energy consumption from the lighting system.

Alibaba Cloud provides technology and operations support to help the China Academy of Art (CAA) develop a low-carbon campus. Together, Alibaba Cloud and CAA designed a solution plan to integrate the idea of low carbon as fashion into campus lifestyle, utility services, and daily operations and leverage Low Carbon Community to promote voluntary emission reduction to each individual and increase social inclusion with carbon reduction benefits. After a 30-day trial, the plan attracted over 29,000 visits to the low-carbon campus mobile app and resulted in a voluntary emission reduction of 3.94kg per capita. The low carbon campus plan was nominated at the World Summit on the Information Society Prizes 2022 for its contribution to carbon neutrality.
