The Green Building Symposium organised by CLP last year was met with overwhelming responses from the industry. To sustain the momentum, CLP organised the symposium again in early October this year. Themed "Sustainability: Technology Driving Behavioural Change”, the symposium received strong support from green building corporations and industry experts to share their challenges and success.
The symposium started with a keynote speech by Ms Wong Sean-yee, Anissa, JP, Permanent Secretary for the Environment/Director of Environmental Protection, The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. It was followed by a session from the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation. They shared their energy conservation initiatives on incorporated renewable elements in early stages of building design and encouraging their tenants to implement green practices. The Courtyard by Marriot Hong Kong Sha Tin presented the intelligent use of Building Management System to support the hotel staff to regularly monitor temperatures at guest rooms and dining hall in order to improve energy efficiency. The MTR Corporation Limited, in the next session, shared their insights on building green stations for improving passenger experience. The Hong Kong Green Building Council, in the second last session, offered useful recommendations and tips for corporate customers to obtain the BEAM Plus Platinum certification.
CLP also made use of the opportunity to introduce our green substation in Kowloon West. Two new services on helping customers to optimise their air conditioning systems were also shared. Booths showcasing the latest energy saving technologies were also demonstrated at the venue.
A panel discussion session chaired by Hong Kong Green Building Council, was added to the program this year. Making reference to the “7-Day Energy Forecast” of CLP “Meter Online Service” launched last year, Mr Shun Chi-ming, Director of Hong Kong Observatory, shared his vision on the collaboration with CLP, particularly on how to relate scientific weather information to citizen’s daily life to achieve energy efficiency. The Kowloon Shangri-La and the Jones Lang LaSalle Limited (Property Management) also shared their successful stories about using the captioned service for energy saving.
Over 300 corporate delegates attended the 2nd Green Building Symposium to get inspired and energised for more eco-friendly elements in building design and ideas on better energy management to make Hong Kong greener.
