Local Energy Efficiency Programme & Measures

1. Voluntary Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme

EMSD has operated a voluntary Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme for various kinds of appliances and equipment since 1995. The Scheme covered a number of product categories, ranging from household appliances and office equipment to cars.

2. Mandatory Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme

To further facilitate the public in choosing energy efficient appliances and raise public awareness on energy saving, the Government has introduced a mandatory Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme (EELS) through the Energy Efficiency (Labelling of Products) Ordinance.

3. Pilot Scheme on Fresh Water Cooling Tower

Energy Efficiency Office (EEO) of the EMSD commissioned and completed a Preliminary Phase Study on the Wider Use of Water Cooled Air Conditioning System (WACS) in Hong Kong in 1999. The study found that WACS are much more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly than their air-cooled counterparts. Subsequently, EEO launched the Pilot Scheme of Wider Use of Fresh Water in Evaporating Cooling Towers for Air-conditioning Systems in 2000. The Scheme allows non-domestic buildings to use cooling towers in their air-conditioning systems.

4. Energy Efficiency Registration Scheme for Buildings

In 1998, EEO launched the Hong Kong Energy Efficiency Registration Scheme for Buildings. The Scheme aims at reducing energy consumption of four major power consumption building services installations. Individual Building Energy Codes were also published for each of the four installations including air conditioning, lighting, electrical and lift and escalator installations. The fifth code, the Performance-based Building Energy Code was introduced in 2003. This code takes a total energy budget approach and allows greater flexibility to encourage innovations in building designs.
