HKBU wins outstanding award in Energy Saving Championship Scheme

浸大奪節能比賽「卓越慳神獎」

Following its continued efforts to promote energy saving and environmental conservation, the University won the Hanson Outstanding Award in the Post-secondary Education Institution category of the Energy Saving Championship Scheme 2016 with its Jockey Club School of Chinese Medicine Building.

The Jockey Club School of Chinese Medicine Building has incorporated a variety of energy saving technologies in its renovation work and hardware enhancement projects since 2013 to optimise venue utility and improve energy efficiency.  The project resulted in a remarkable saving of energy of over 450,000 kWh – equivalent to the electricity consumption of around 90 households for a year.

Apart from consistently upgrading existing buildings on campus with energy efficient options, the Task Force on Sustainable Campus and the Estates Office have proactively engaged University members to make changes in their personal behaviour to help reduce long-term energy consumption. These steps include promoting and implementing the Campus Sustainability Guide through the Sustainable Office Scheme to exchange and foster good green practices with staff green ambassadors, and the U-wise Energy Patrol conducted by student green ambassadors to monitor the University community’s energy usage patterns and habits.

Organised by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) of the HKSAR Government, the Energy Saving Championship Scheme recognises leading organisations that adopt energy efficient technologies and equipment, apply the operational optimisation of energy consuming systems, develop best practices in energy management and promote energy saving by tenants and other occupants.

Meanwhile, HKBU also signed the Energy Saving Charter 2017 organised by EMSD to demonstrate its dedication to improving energy efficiency and maximising its energy saving capacity.

浸大致力推動節能和環保的努力再見成果,大學的賽馬會中醫藥學院大樓在「慳神大比拼2016」專上教育院校組別比賽中,贏得「卓越慳神獎」。

賽馬會中醫藥學院大樓自2013年完成維修工程,優化和增設系列節約能源設施,提升能源效益,結果共節省了超過450,000度電力,相等於90個香港家庭一年的電力消耗量。

除了在硬件上提升節能效益,大學的可持續發展校園專責小組和物業處亦致力通過不同活動鼓勵大學社群改變個人行為習慣,減少能源消耗,包括舉辦綠色辦公室計劃,實施校園綠色指引,讓教職員綠色大使分享和推動綠色生活,以及由學生綠色大使推行校園用電巡查,監察大學社群的能源使用模式和習慣。

慳神大比拼由機電工程署舉辦,旨在表揚採用節能科技及設備、應用節能優化系統、建立能源管理良好作業模式及在租戶和用戶間推廣節約能源等方面的領導團體。

另外,浸大又簽署了機電工程署的節能約章計劃2017,推廣節能,為環保作出承擔。
