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.
