Energy is a critical issue for the sustainable development of human society. Using renewable energy resources to replace the traditional ones is one solution at supply side. Reducing energy use is the other fundamental and more effective solution at demand side. Buildings are the major consumers. In US, consumption of buildings accounts for over 40% of overall energy consumption. In Mainland of China, it accounts for over 30% and will be increased to over 40% within a few years. In Hong Kong, it accounts for even over 80%.
Due to various causes, energy wastes in buildings are often serious and there are great potentials of saving energy without scarifying the services and built environmental quality. In this one day conference, experts and professionals from Hong Kong and Shanghai will join together to exchange and share their methodologies, technologies and application experiences for saving energy in different types of buildings under different climate conditions, including new buildings and existing buildings, as well as address the building energy saving from the viewpoints of building technologies and government regulations.
