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
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 andthe Jones Lang LaSalle Limited
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.
