National Cheng Kung University,       Tainan, Taiwan

Conference Venue

Venue: Y. S. Sun Green Building Research Center

Address: No.1, Daxue Rd., East Dist., Tainan City 701, Taiwan

    The Y. S. Sun Green Building Research Center is the world’s first green education center, sponsored by NCKU, Delta Electronics’ Chairman Bruce Cheng and more than 30 enterprises.

      The three-storey, 4,800 square-meter green building, 100% built with green materials with 65% energy saving and 50% water saving, serves as the university’s international conference center and is used to showcase technological innovations of green buildings. It is estimated that the building uses 35% of the energy needed in a typical office building. Other key features include toilets which can reduce water runoff -- part of the designs resulting in 50% water saving -- and roof garden soil which uses light-weight ceramics. The center's construction process was recorded by the Discovery Channel in 2009.

    The Y. S. Sun Green Building Research Center at National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan’s first zero-carbon building, has gained numerous world recognitions such as (I) the top honor by a globally recognized green building ranking system of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), (II) certificate of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) by the USGBC -- a recognition that will put it on the list of The World’s Greenest Buildings next year, (III) the highest green building certificate from Taiwan’s Ecology, Energy Saving, Waste Reduction and Health (EEWH) rating system, (IV) the outstanding award in the World Green Roof Conference in Hainan, China.
