Promoting District Cooling
The Chief Executive announced in the 2017 Policy Address a new philosophy of governance to strengthen the Government’s roles as a “facilitator”, “promoter” and “regulator”, with a view to striving for a better Hong Kong. The EMSD has been actively playing these roles and has taken concrete actions to help Hong Kong achieve world-class standards in terms of E&M safety and effective use of energy, following the principles of being innovative, interactive and collaborative.
To promote sustainable development, Mr. Sit Wing-hang, Director of Electrical and Mechanical Services, and Ms. Denise Lo Kit-ying, Senior Engineer, attended the Technical Symposium 2018 organised by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, in London, United Kingdom. With “The District Cooling System in Hong Kong” as the presentation topic, we introduced to overseas academics and trade practitioners the leading role played by the EMSD in the project, explored ways of using innovative technologies to promote sustainable development, and highlighted Hong Kong's contribution in supporting the Paris Agreement, addressing climate change, making effective use of energy and strengthening urban infrastructure, so as to enhance Hong Kong's position in the international arena.
