Real-world energy performance

​As the designer and occupant, I am proud to share the fact that not only the energy performance target of 25 kWh/m2.a has been met for the past years, but also it follows a decreasing trend with operation strategies being optimized along the course of building occupancy. A building energy webpage is set to be released very soon for real-time public disclosure.

    ​This project adopted high performance building envelope system to reduce its energy demand. Underground borehole and solar collectors serves the geothermal heat pumps and absorption chiller as the primary cooling and heating sources. Through smart use of renewable and traditional energy, building heating demand in winter is to be met with zero use of fossil fuel and cooling energy consumption in summer to be reduced by 50%.

    Various building sensors and metering devices were installed to collect real-time operational data, providing data monitoring, analysis, and control improvement, with aid of EMS and BMS, to realize optimized operation and maximized energy conservation.
