Technical Seminar on Ventilation – From Neighbourhood to Indoors
BEAM Plus Neighbourhood that launched in December 2016, is designed to assess project performance of a development project and help project owners to incorporate a broader framework of urban sustainability principles at the early planning stage for subsequent project implementation. In this assessment tool, outdoor environmental quality is concerned to safeguard the health, comfort or well-being of general public, as well as aspects of performance that improve quality and functionality. Good planning on building ventilation can reduce the potential increase in urban heat island effect and provide sufficient quality of outdoor air provision for indoor built environment. On the other hand, energy reduction and sufficient ventilation for indoor environmental quality are also concerned in other BEAM assessment tools (New Buildings, Existing Buildings & Interiors). In this technical seminar, the speakers will share their experiences on building and city ventilation in Hong Kong as well as more energy efficient and healthier approach to demand control ventilation.

Technical Seminar on Sustainable HVAC System Design
About 90% of total electricity consumption in Hong Kong is contributed by buildings and HVAC system contributed the most energy consumption in commercial buildings. Through enhancement of building energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions have been gradually reduced. In October 1998, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department has launched the voluntary Hong Kong Energy Efficiency Registration Scheme for Buildings to promote the application of the Building Energy Code. To further promote building energy efficiency, the Government enacted the Buildings Energy Efficiency Ordinance (the Ordinance) which has come into full operation since 21 September 2012.

The improvements in the economy and an increased focus on efficiency are driving increases in the market for energy-efficient HVAC equipment and system. Also in the long run, increasingly stringent regulatory environments will also drive growth in energy-efficient commercial HVAC system markets. According to some researches, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial HVAC systems is expected to double in next two decade.

As concerns about the environmental impact of energy generation and uncertainty over future energy prices increase, efficiency improvements in HVAC equipment and systems become more attractive. Over the years, Building Owners, Engineers and Designers are adopting energy efficient system in their buildings, and continue to optimize to its best performance according to the loading demand. Also the market is also looking for some emerging new system and technologies.

In this technical seminar, the speaker will review the design consideration of the variable primary flow in chilled water system to achieve its best performance, he will also discuss the potential concern of the system and its potential remedies. Besides, the speaker will discuss about the Thermal Energy Storage and share his experiences in US.

Technical Seminar on Building Energy Simulation – Trends, Technologies and Applications
Electricity generation accounts for around 60% of the total CO2 emissions from energy use in Hong Kong, and buildings, particularly air-conditioned buildings, account for more than half of the electricity consumed each year. Compliance with the Building Energy Codes can reduce energy consumption and operating costs. The reduction of energy leads to the saving of fossil fuels, and reduces carbon dioxide emissions which contribute to global climate change. Mentioned in Energy Use aspect in BEAM Plus Manual, an energy analysis report shall include a formal certifying statement informing the scope of compliance and confirming the compliance with the BEC either by Prescriptive or Performance Option. The statement shall be accompanied by a set of documents, including as-fitted/installation drawings, design calculations and standard forms as required in the BEC. On the use of performance approach to demonstrate compliance, the statement shall include a report describing the simulation software, the simulation results, and the modeling assumptions. Therefore, a simulation software tool is important to model the energy performance for all aspects of our buildings today.

In this technical seminar, the speaker will review the building energy simulation on its development and trends. Also, he will introduce the types of building energy simulation tools available today and provide an overview of EnergyPlus simulation methodologies, capabilities and utilities and interfaces.

Technical Seminar on International Approaches for Indoor Environment and Energy Use Reduction
Indoor environment conditions have a significant impact on the quality of life given that on average people in Hong Kong spend around 85% of their time indoors. Poor indoor environments in commercial and institutional buildings can impact on productivity and may pose health risks to users. The indoor environment criteria used for the design, such as ISO, CEN, ASHRAE 55, etc., is generally defined by the client and/or consultant appropriate to the type and use of the premises included in the development, and is a basic performance specification. On the other hand, electricity generation accounts for around 60% of the total CO2 emissions from energy use in Hong Kong, and buildings, particularly air-conditioned buildings, account for more than half of the electricity consumed each year. Ensuring buildings are designed for good energy performance is also the key to the conservation of resources and reductions in environmental loadings. Therefore, the design, operation and maintenance of buildings should seek to provide a good quality indoor environment, but with optimum use of energy and other resources.

The first session of this seminar will review the international standards on thermal comfort and indoor air quality on development, national differences, future revision and recommendation. In second session of this seminar, the speaker will present the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and related standardization with the aims of decreasing energy use in buildings under the Energy Policy in Europe.

Uses of Information Technology in Indoor Air Quality Management
Indoor air quality (IAQ) has a profound and lasting impact on human health. To maintain a good IAQ, it is required to be closely and continuously monitored, and sampled and tested for pollutants regularly. Therefore, there is a need to use different information technologies including measurement sensors, wireless transmission technology, internet communication technology, automatic logging system of samples etc. to make continuous assessment of IAQ and quality control and assurance of the sampling and testing of protocols for air.
Details of these applications of information technologies for IAQ management will be presented in this seminar. Of course, these technologies can easily be found their applications in other areas of environmental management.

An Integrated Model for the Design of Air-cooled Chiller
This seminar reviews the problem of excess capacity and discusses the risk exposure of chiller systems without redundant chillers. The cooling load profiles of the chiller plants of four medium-sized commercial buildings in Hong Kong are reviewed. The risk exposure of chiller systems without redundant chillers can be minimized by applying risk-based preventive maintenance. The just-in-demand design reduces capital cost of the building and frees up funds for continuous energy measurement and improving the energy efficiency of chiller plant systems. This seminar presents a model for designing chiller plants that improves the energy efficiency of the plant in a cost effective and thoughtful manner. It is designed with consideration of the life cycle of the plant and real-time continuous commissioning, monitoring, measurement, comparison and execution for better energy
management.

Sustainable Building Facades for Low-energy Building Design
The development of new sustainable building needs to have tactful manipulation of energy flow at the
external facades. There are two key approaches: (i) to reduce air-conditioning and lighting demands by better selection of facade materials and configuration to enhance thermal and visual comfort, and (ii) to make use of facade-integrated renewable energy systems for energy production. The latter is particularly important for the introduction of zero-carbon buildings. In this session, the sustainable building facades with both active and passive design elements will be discussed. Practical examples as well as innovative research and development works will be presented, such as advanced window systems, ventilated facades, greenery, hybrid photovoltaic and solar thermal devices. The merits of the green features for applications in the modern cities at the subtropical climate zone will be highlighted.
