Abstract

This project, sponsored by Business Environment Council Limited (BEC) in Hong Kong, developed a list of technologies recommended to increase the energy efficiency of Hong Kong’s commercial buildings, and identified barriers to the adoption of energy-saving technologies. Information was gathered through desk-based research as well as interviews with building and hotel managers, property developers, technology developers and suppliers, and energy advisory consultants. The team provided BEC with the list of technologies along with their overall descriptions, cost and energy data, case studies, and explanations of advantages and disadvantages. This information will feed into a larger BEC project to create an informational guide to assist in the overall uptake of sustainable technologies.
