MIECF2016 31 March – 2 April 2016 – HAESCO Booth F63


Once again, HAESCO is a supporting organisation for 2016MIECF, an important regional event, that brings manufacturers and buyers to an internationally recognised conference. Every year the event has a different focus, for 2016, the focus will be opportunities for waste management.

HAESCO booth

In addition to the conference, and exhibition, there are also technical visits are planned, and a visit to Macau’s operating waste to energy (WTE) plant is one of the options, municipal solid waste (MSW) is transformed into electricity. For more information visit http://www.macaomiecf.com

Visiting 2016MICEF? visit HAESCO booth F63  (FloorPlan) we are located near the Green Business Matching Area – see you there!

Delegation to Macau

HAESCO Energy Matters Seminar 2015

www.HAESCO.org Energy Matters Seminar 2015


There is a gap, wider than the grand canyon, between the aspirations of Design standards, and actual building Performance, HAESCO hosted this seminar to examine the challenges. Below are photographs from HAESCO’s Energy matters seminar held on 2 Nov. 2015 at Jockey Environmental Building, Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong

We were honoured to host two expert speakers:

  1. Tom Jones (BSRIA) – a renown air testing expert with 30 years experience, his topic was Leaky buildings, and air tightness standards.
  2. Ir Paul Sat (Swire) – an engineer with 30 years building services experience, his topic was Big Data, or using building data to optimise the operation of VAV systems and using VFD’s the impressive annual energy savings.

Tom’s seminar explained the history and impact of building regulations form the UK perspective, there are no standards used in Hong Kong presently. And then explained the standards used to test and assess buildings in Europe today, and the resulting energy savings expected.

Paul’s seminar explained the method and energy savings resulting from improving existing Swire buildings, focused on the typical VAV system used for air conditioning Hong Kong’s Class A Commercial buildings, and he demonstrated how they achieved 30% energy saving.

HAESCO Seminar Building Energy Efficiency 2 November 2015

Seminar Building Energy Efficiency – 2 November 2015energy-saving-plan-cover-2

The Hong Kong Government’s Environmental Bureau launched its Energy Saving Plan in May 2015, and page 68 outlines the key policy dates, this seminar will introduce some ideas and concepts to help lower your energy costs.

We all know the challenges, 90% of electricity generated in Hong Kong is used in our buildings, that equates to approx. 63% of Hong Kong’s carbon footprint, but how can society demand energy improvement without incentives? Social pressure? Will new technology save the day? Do we need a Carbon Tax?


Presently the standard for building energy efficiency in Hong Kong is managed by two separate entities:

  1. Buildings Department (BD) govern the two flavours of Overall Thermal Transmission Value (OTTV) including the most recently added RTTV requirement for residential buildings and:
  2. EMSD who govern under Cap 610 BEEO which cover the efficiency of the Building Services equipment and systems used inside buildings, for example chillers, air handling units, fan, lighting, lifts, etc.

However, there is a huge gap, wider than the grand canyon, between creating a building in accordance with a ‘Design Standard’ and the actual building energy performance. Once dissatisfaction with building energy costs finally reaches the board room, firms often take on energy projects with little understanding of the all the risks and options involved.

We have a fantastic line up of speakers to stimulate debate, including:

Tom Jones BSRIA – Air leakage means lost energy and higher operating costs. BSRIA’s Tom Jones will discuss air leakage standards and verification methods. BSRIA is the UK’s leading building research establishment.

Paul Sat, Swire Properties – Big Data! Globally electric motors account for approx. 60% of electricity consumption! Paul, a Building Service engineer by profession, will discuss VAV fault detection and automatic control necessary to tackle increasing energy costs from using data.

Public Consultation on the Future Development of the Electricity Market

HAESCO has submitted our comments on the Public Consultation on the Future Development of the Electricity Market (closing 30th June 2015) to the HKSAR environmental bureau, as follows:


Question 1 How important is choice to you in respect of the supply of electricity? What
objectives do you consider should be achieved through introducing competition to the
electricity market?

Response: HAESCO appreciates that electricity generation, transmission, distribution, and retailing all offer opportunities for improving economic efficiency through healthy competition. However given Hong Kong’s size and intensely developed infrastructure, and the high degree of reliability and comparatively low price already enjoyed by the Hong Kong electricity buyer, HAESCO contends that introducing competition is not likely to produce significant advantage to Hong Kong electricity buyers over the next 10-15 years, so need not be given great importance. That said, in the interests of encouraging clean energy and expanding choice, HAESCO supports the introduction of more flexibility for independent power producers (IPP) and beneficial feed-in tariffs for Renewables. In the event it is decided competition is widened, IPP shouldn’t be permitted to only serve a single corporation such as MTRC, or mega/bulk consumers alone, causing increased financial pressure on other consumers.


Question 3 (e) incentive and penalty scheme relating to the performance of the power companies

response: HAESCO contends that it is wholly inappropriate for the utility companies to be given any responsibility, let alone any incentive, related to consumers electricity consumption, whether through conservation or efficiency.


Question 4 Should Hong Kong further promote renewable energy despite the higher tariff
implications; and if so, about how much (in terms of percentage of your electricity
bill) are you prepared to pay?

Response: HAESCO’s position is that electricity users are entitled to decide for themselves not only how much electricity to use at the offered price, but also where that
electricity comes from. If parties are willing to offer electricity generated from
renewable sources, Government policy should enable consumers to have unencumbered access to those sources, through the existing grid.


Question 5: What specific requirements would you suggest to be set out in the future contractual arrangement (if any) between the Government and the power companies to encourage the promotion of demand side management and renewable energy by the power companies?

Response As noted in the response to Question 3 (e), HAESCO does NOT support the
participation of the utility companies to have any involvement with demand side management. The utility companies should be permitted to encourage demand side management if they so choose, including offering profits-neutral tariffs to encourage load shifting. The utility companies should be permitted to offer and promote the sale of electricity generated from renewable sources.


Question 6 Do you have any other comments and suggestions?

response: As an association of energy services companies, it is HAESCOs mission to promote performance contracting, shared savings contracting, and all other forms of offering services related to clean energy and energy efficiency to all parties in Hong Kong.
The electricity market as governed by the Scheme of Control Agreement or its
successor offers a variety of ways for Government policy to influence or dictate certain elements within that market which stand to improve the lot of Hong Kong electricity buyers. The consultation document suggests that electricity supply is a balance of four factors, safety, price, reliability, and environmental impact. HAESCO’s position is that arrangements for flexibility and trade offs in the latter three parts would serve the Hong Kong electricity buyer well, and that a revised SCA should provide for this.

On the subject of AIM (aka smart meters), HAESCO notes that the benefits of this
technology where already implemented at scales seem to mostly fall to the power
company, so recommends that the cost of smart meters be borne by power company
shareholders and not by consumers.
