ACT-Shop Programme: Retro-commissioning Helps Save Energy and Money!

31 Aug 2018

Mr Wong Kam-sing, Secretary for the Environment teams up with Ir Cary Chan, Executive Director of the Council for the shooting of the promotion video on retro-commissioning in existing buildings.

Do you know how “health checkup” on existing buildings can improve their energy efficiency and help combat climate change? Recently, the Council teamed up with the Environment Bureau and the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department for the shooting of the promotion video on retro-commissioning, showing how existing buildings overcome their “midlife crisis”.

The Council has invited Harbour City and the Sun Hung Kai Centre, two of the participating buildings of the ACT-Shop Programme, to join the shooting and share their impressive achievements in energy saving. Mr Wong Kam-sing, Secretary for the Environment and Ir Cary Chan, Executive Director of the Council visited these two iconic buildings in Hong Kong to explore how retro-commissioning helps identify the improvement potential for existing buildings to reduce electricity consumption and hence to save money.

To align with Government’s initiatives in energy saving plan, the Council launched the ACT-Shop programme in 2016. The main aim of the Programme is to encourage existing building practitioners to implement a knowledge-based energy management and retro-commissioning practices, and to assist building owners to enhance the energy performance of their existing buildings. To date, 24 buildings have joined the programme. The ACT-Shop programme has already launched the fourth batch of pilot projects and would organise training programmes to build up the in-house competence of the participating companies.
