IBM Research is expanding its Green Horizons initiative globally to enable city governments, utility companies and factories to better understand their relationships with the environment. IBM’s China Research lab is working with the Beijing Environmental Protection Bureau (BEPB) to provide one of the world’s most advanced air quality forecasting systems, able to generate high-resolution 1km-by-1km pollution forecasts 72 hours in advance. It models and predicts the effects of weather on the flow and dispersal of pollutants as well as the airborne chemical reactions between weather and pollutant particles. In the first three quarters of this year, the Beijing government was able to achieve a 20 percent reduction in ultra-fine particulate matter — bringing it closer to its goal of reducing particulate matter 2.5 by 25 percent by 2017.

Premier Li Keqiang vowed during the just-concluded National People’s Congress to tackle China’s massive pollution problem and that promise could lead to many more green vehicles in the country. Electric vehicles had already enjoyed a sales surge just before the two sessions started.

The sale of green vehicles has suddenly become a hot item as the government strengthens measures to curb China’s choking pollution. Beijing and Shanghai late last month released a list of new energy vehicle brands that can be sold in the cities, breaking territory protection for the first time.
