Supported by KAS RECAP, the Business Environment Council, a Hong Kong-based environmental NGO, launched an assessment of the energy efficiency potential in the building sector and provided key recommendations for futher discussions. The report does not recommend a definitive pathway for implementation. Rather, with the proposed building energy performance data framework, the analysis has identified critical points where key stakeholders have yet to reach a consensus, and suggested alternative routes to overcome those challenges, each with its own merits and demerits, for further discussion.
Looking forward, data transparency and energy performance benchmarking will be a crucial enabler to further improve energy efficiency and decarbonise the building sector in Hong Kong: by informing public policy, incentivising private investment in energy-saving design and technology, and driving behavioural change among building users.
