It has also designated demonstration cities for energy saving in a bid to promote local energy conservation needs. Chongqing was listed as one of China's first batch of key cities to retrofit public buildings for energy conservation and has become the country's model city for implementing energy saving monitoring systems in government office buildings and large-scale public buildings. The city was granted a national energy conservation and pollution reduction special subsidy of RMB80 million and a national special subsidy of RMB14.5 million. It is expected that Chongqing will have retrofitted public buildings occupying 4,500,000 square metres by 2015.

Currently, Technovator has developed a city-level E-CLOUD service platform (building energy consumption monitoring, testing and analysis system) for seven types of buildings as demonstration projects in Chongqing, including building complexes, office buildings, hotels, shopping malls, hospitals, stadiums and schools. The Company led the project to complete energy consumption monitoring and testing for nearly 200 large-scale public buildings as well as energy conservation transformation of more than 300,000 square metres. Major projects implementing these solutions include the Yingli International Financial Centre, the so-called "Chongqing IFC", Bank of Chongqing and Chongqing University of Arts and Sciences.
