Hong Kong Pacific Centre (HKPC), under the management of Sino Estates
Management Limited (SEML) has been collaborating with CLP on Energy Audit
service since 2010. With its outstanding green management performance, HKPC
received the merit award in the CLP GREENPLUS Recognition Award 2013.
Recently, HKPC has set an annual energy saving target of over 10 % through
implementation of various green initiatives.
To further enhance their energy efficiency, HKPC has reviewed the energy
audit report and taken advice from CLP. The T8 light tubes on each floor of exit
staircase areas have been replaced gradually by the LED lighting system and
motion sensors. As a commercial building with a variety of businesses operating
at different hours, lighting system timers are installed on each floor to cater
for different business needs of the tenants. Moreover, HKPC is adopting the LED
lighting in all public areas and an annual energy saving of over 70% for
lighting is expected.
Regarding the air-conditioning system, HKPC maintains its indoor temperature
at 24-26°C. With daily weather condition monitoring, the management team of HKPC
adjusts the distribution and temperature of chilled water to cater for the
operational needs of tenants. Also, HKPC optimizes the energy performance of the
chiller units to enhance energy efficiency. HKPC has planned to replace all
air-cooled chillers with water-cooled ones this year to reduce around 30% of
energy consumption and to further reduce operating costs and carbon
The management team of HKPC has been always striving for a greener
environment for the tenants and customers. In September 2012, the Buildings
Energy Efficiency Ordinance (BEEO) came into effect. To ensure the new
requirements were met, the Centre collaborated with CLP to conduct BEEO
Compliance Audit. The experience gained was then shared with other properties
under SEML's property portfolio.
CLP will closely collaborate with SEML in the areas of energy efficiency and
energy saving. Till now, CLP has provided its Energy Audit service for over 30
properties to provide the energy saving recommendation on lighting,
air-conditioning and hot water systems in order to achieve carbon reduction.
