The Vector Lights project aims to make use of an iconic piece of urban infrastructure as a continual storytelling canvas to promote renewable energy and raise awareness of the critical role of renewable energy. The launch of the project is participated by multiple sectors, including public sectors, private sectors and social organization. By the wide participation, the launch of lights attracted 5.4 million people to watch.
