Repurposing of an Unused SpaceIn the latest ACENewsletter, a case of repurposing an unused space is introduced.
In Linbian, Pingtung, there were fish ponds around 1,100 hectares flooded by a violent typhoon in 2009, making it become unavailable to use. As policies of water nurture & photovoltaic farming” and “industry transformation” were brought forward, a group of people made efforts to rent a wetland combined with photovoltaics, and built a smart grid demonstration area here to repurpose this unused space for multifunctional purposes as flood detention and water storage. Moreover, with the aid of using ACEGrid® geogrids as reinforced earth structure, this unused wetland with vegetation growing on the surface thus becomes a better habitat for animals and plants, also providing the educational function for residents and visitors.
For more information about the case, please read the case study: The Case of Repurposing Unused Fish Ponds into a Smart Grid Demonstration Park , Pingtung, Taiwan.
