Skills Upgrading Programme for Green Building Practitioners - (3) Applied Solar Energy in Buildings

Collaboration Partner: School of Energy and Environment, City University of Hong Kong

This training programme has been designed to provide CPD education that is more in-depth and structured than traditional talks or seminars. Graduates in employment or experienced practitioners in the industry can construct individual programme of weekend studies that meet their own needs. Whether you would like to look for a focused treatment of an area beyond your first degree, a knowledge update in an area subject to rapid changes, a re-orientation to areas new to your scope of experience, or simply a broadening of knowledge, there are a variety of subject courses that meet your needs.

The programme offers a wide range of subject choices that span across key elements in the topic of green or sustainable building, including energy and carbon, indoor environment, outdoor environment, community aspects, materials and waste, building maintenance as well as climate change.

Taught by experienced faculty from the School of Energy and Environment at the City University of Hong Kong, this programme will also serve as an ‘appetizer’ for those considering to pursue post-graduate studies. Upon completion of the courses, participants will be able to gain a basic understanding of the subjects, which serves as a good foundation for further studies.

(3) Applied Solar Energy in Buildings

What to cover: Introduction of different solar photovoltaic technologies; building-attached and building-integrated photovoltaics (BAPV and BIPV); challenges and opportunities of PV installation in Hong Kong; introduction of new PV products; Feed-in Tariff (FiT) Scheme

Date: 22 May & 5 Jun 2021 (Sat)

Time: 9:30am - 12:45pm (Registration starts at 9:15am)

Venue: Auditorium, Christian Family Service Centre, 3 Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong
