Technical Seminar on New Development of Refrigerant & Refrigeration Safety Management
The Montreal Protocol has scheduled the phasing out of controlled substances, including chemicals containing chlorine and bromine used as refrigerants, solvents, foam blowing agents, aerosol propellants, fire suppressants, and for other purposes. Ozone Layer Protection Ordinance (Cap. 403) 1989 gives effect to Hong Kong’s international obligations to control the manufacture, import and export of ozone depleting substances. Ozone Layer Protection (Controlled Refrigerants) Regulation 1994 requires the conservation of controlled refrigerants used in large scale installations and motor vehicles. Scheduled substances under the Ozone Layer Protection Ordinance are listed by the Environmental Protection Department. In addition to having suitable thermodynamic properties, the ideal refrigerant would be nontoxic, non-inflammable, completely stable, environmentally benign, readily available, self-lubricating, compatible with materials used in equipment, easy to handle and detect.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency provides information on suitable substitutes for ozone depleting substances, including refrigerants for various types of air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment, fire suppression, blowing agents, solvents, etc. U.S.EPA has developed and implemented regulations for management of ozone depletion substances (ODSs) in the United States. The regulations include programs that ended the production of ODSs and require the manufacturers to label products either containing or made with chemicals that have significant ODSs. Banning the usage of CFCs in refrigerants slows the ozone depletion and global climate change.

In BEAM Plus Manual, the credits of MA P2 (Use of Non-CFC Based Refrigerants) and MA8 (Ozone Depleting Substances) cover the concerns on usage of refrigerants. The air-conditioning and refrigeration equipments shall fulfill the following equation which determines a maximum threshold for the combined contributions to ozone depletion and global warming potentials: LCGWP + LCODP x 105 ≤ 775. The Client shall submit a report by a suitably qualified person giving details of the air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment installed; and demonstrating that the global warming potential and ozone depletion potential of the refrigerants used in equipment meets the specified requirement. Reference shall be made to refrigerant supplies and/or equipment manufacturer’s data together with guidance provided by recognised authorities such as ASHRAE, etc. In this seminar, the experts of refrigerants from ASHRAE will present the update on the relevant ASHRAE Standards as well as local development trends on new refrigerants.

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.

Bringing Life Cycle Environmental Impact and Cost into Design from Inception
Life cycle environmental impact assessment is acknowledged as the most comprehensive and robust method of assessing the environmental impact of buildings. Life cycle assessment is inherently complex and especially for buildings, where the materials and their construction create a building which will consume energy and water and emit pollution and wastes in operation over many decades of serviceable life.

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.
