7 venues and supporting facilities will be the first batch to be connected to green electricity starting from July 1, including the National Stadium and National Aquatics Center, the office said.

The Beijing Winter Olympics will be the first one in history to power all venues by green electricity.

Introducing green energy to all venues will be a strong measure to host the games in a green manner and fulfill China’s promise in its bid, said an official from the planning and construction department of the 2022 Olympic Organizing Committee.

It’s also a concrete action to promote the development of China’s clean energy industry and advance ecological progress, the official added.
