    Building Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Building Design
    Buildings are significant users of energy and materials in a society and they have a large impact on the natural environment and resources. To reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emission, it is very important to promote building energy efficiency and sustainable building design. In urban cities like Hong Kong, building energy use constitutes a major portion of total energy consumption. It is believed that the potential for energy saving and improvement of building environmental performance is large.

    Research Areas

    This research theme focuses on studying the key factors, policies and technologies for building energy efficiency and sustainable building design. Five research areas have been investigated with emphasis on Hong Kong’s situation.

    • Analysis of building climatic data
    • Building energy efficiency standards
    • Building energy simulation tools
    • Energy benchmarking and labels for buildings
    • Sustainable building technologies
    The other related research themes include:
