The design has been using construction volume self-shading, movable external sunshade, natural ventilation by thermal pressure for passive energy conservation measure, and also using ground-source heat pump system, rooftop solar photovoltaic battery for active ecological technology. The roof with solar and photovoltaic cells lies with 79 thousands m2 of polycrystalline silicon solar photovoltaic modules. The generating capacity is about 10.04 MWP.  The concept of sustainable green station will bring huge energy saving demonstration effect to the community.
