EMSD Wins the Regional Energy Project of the Year Award for the Asia-Pacific Region
Over the years, EMSD has been helping our client departments implement different energy-saving and emission-reduction solutions through the application of new technology so as to reduce energy consumption and enhance energy efficiency. In September this year, EMSD and the Hospital Authority (HA) jointly received from the Association of Energy Engineers the Regional Energy Project of the Year Award for the Asia-Pacific region. Also, EMSD won the Regional Institutional Energy Management Award for the Asia-Pacific region, commending our outstanding performance in energy-management programme.
To achieve the carbon emission reduction target set out in Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2030+, it is essential that the Government takes a leading role. Since 2015, we have been co-operating with HA to introduce innovative energy-management projects. We replaced the aged air-conditioning units in a number of hospitals with magnetic bearing variable speed chillers and engaged the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology to verify the cost-effectiveness of the projects. It is concluded that an annual electricity consumption of around 13 million kWh has been saved.
The award encourages the trade to consider the use of high-efficiency chillers, and we will continue to promote the adoption of high-efficiency E&M equipment by the trade to achieve energy-saving targets and contribute to environmental protection.
For more information on the application and effectiveness of high-efficiency chillers, please contact Ms. Jovian Cheung, Senior Engineer, at 3155 4003.
