Energy Management Project Receives Another International Award
The EMSD has been promoting energy efficiency and the adoption of renewable energy in Hong Kong to facilitate energy conservation and emission reduction. In October this year, the energy management project jointly developed under the collaboration of the EMSD, the Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited (Towngas) and the Hospital Authority (HA) was awarded the Regional Energy Project of the Year Award for the Asia-Pacific region by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) in the United States. This is another award on energy management from the AEE, following the two regional energy management awards received last year.
This year’s award-winning project was jointly developed by the HA and Towngas with support from the EMSD. It is the first combined heat and power electricity generation project in Hong Kong hospitals, utilising biogas to produce electricity for a hospital and thus turning waste into energy.
