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.
