Entryway, patio and sliding doors are all available with the Energy Star label, which identifies products that are energy efficient according to strict guidelines developed by the government. Good thing, since exterior doors can account for up to 11 percent of a home's air .
The so-called rigid foam is used in insulation, wind turbine blades, furniture and, of course, surfboards. When used as insulation, the foam offers high moisture and heat resistance, excellent acoustics and protection against mold and pests. It also has a higher R-value than fiberglass or polystyrene, meaning that it has a higher thermal. A survey on sizing air-conditioning plant for commercial buildings was carried out in Hong Kong to find out the industry norms and engineers' practice in the design of energy-efficient buildings. Specially prepared questionnaires were sent to 38 local firms consisted of consulting and contracting engineering firms, owners and developers, and.
Building Energy Efficiency. The most inexpensive energy is the energy not consumed in the first place. Design that incorporates high levels of thermal insulation, whole building air tightness, high performance windows, passive solar design techniques and energy saving technologies will create buildings that are more energy efficient and. An energy-efficient home is one that lowers energy bills and helps cut heating and cooling costs while enjoying more consistent temperatures in your home, all year round. Choosing the correct wall construction material makes all the difference regarding energy efficiency, so make sure it is the Energy Brick from Green Energy Bricks.

Energy efficient products. ENERGY STAR products are independently certified to save energy without sacrificing features or functionality. Saving energy helps prevent climate change. Look for the ENERGY STAR label to save money on your energy bills and help protect our environment.
This book is really a book. It is a collection of magazine articles from a well respected building magazine that cover different building techniques. One chapter per article. There is an article for every currently used, but not quite mainstream building technique to improve energy efficiency of a home/5(7).
The report, Energy Efficient Buildings Global Outlook, available for purchase from the Navigant Research Web site, analyzes the global market for energy efficient building products and services in nine key segments: HVAC, lighting, controls, water efficiency, water heating, building envelope, other, and commissioning and installation study provides an analysis of the market issues.
Laws and Regulations of Building Energy Efficiency in Hong Kong. The Building Energy Efficiency Regulation (BEER) was issued by the Hong Kong government in The BEER was the first legislation on energy-efficient building design in Hong Kong. This regulation was applied to commercial buildings and hotels and it imposed the.
Proven Strategies and Solutions for Reducing Energy Consumption in Commercial Structures. Property and facility managers can turn to Energy-Efficient Building Systems as a one-stop guide to operating and maintaining commercial building systems at peak efficiency.
Designed to help reduce energy costs and meet environmental standards, this state-of-the-art productivity tool contains fully /5(4). Hong Kong's Richest ; Malaysia's Richest in a PH is designed to save approximately 75 percent of the entire energy used in a typical building.
The requirements for certification are stringent Author: Sheri Koones. The next level of Energy Efficient Building Products in Hong Kong book efficiency in buildings depends on a holistic systems approach that accounts for how building systems, facilities and the grid interact with each other, according to the Systems Efficiency Initiative, a coalition of more than 50 government agencies, utilities.
Energy efficient building features of Science Park. Fig. 4 The main building of Science Park: In Hong Kong, many energy efficient buildings have been developed in recent years. Science Park is a good example of how today's building designers achieve high energy efficiency through their careful consideration of details and innovative designs.

The building sector is responsible for high energy consumption and its global demand is expected to grow as each day. To improve building energy efficiency, the Hong Kong Government formulated a Buildings Energy Efficiency Ordinance (建築物能源效益條例) which was passed by the Legislative Council in November Under the Ordinance, certain prescribed types of buildings have to comply with Building Energy Code (BEC) and/or Energy Audit Code (EAC Enacted by: Legislative Council of Hong Kong.
