12:00-1:45pm. This is the second event of the smart city series organized by AmCham. This event focuses on the important infrastructures supporting the smart city development in Hong Kong. During the event, the speakers will discuss the following topics. 'District Cooling System at Kai Tak Development" by Siu-kuen Lo The Government is taking the lead to implement a first-of-its-kind district cooling system (DCS) in Hong Kong at the Kai Tak Development (KTD). The project is to construct a large scale centralized air-conditioning system. Chilled water is produced at the central chiller plant and distributed to the consumer buildings through an underground chilled water pipe network. DCS is the most energy efficient centralized air-conditioning system, consuming 35% less electricity as compared to traditional air-cooled air-conditioning system. It is expected to achieve an annual saving of about 85 million kilowatt-hour in electricity consumption. 'Environmental Friendly Transport Linkage – Connecting communities effectively while caring for the environment: The win-win outcome" by Richard Kwan Railway is a widely acknowledged environmental friendly transport mode. Hong Kong is in line with the worldwide trend in promoting rail transport as an effective and efficient way to travel. Richard will share with us the many environmental efforts associated with the MTR new lines, as well as how the railway links will transform the daily routines of the travelling public.
'Smart Power Supply" by Eddie Wu Smart power supply is a key enabler for Smart City. It leverages advancements in communication and information technologies to enable a highly automated, integrated and customer orientated power supply system across the value chain. On the generation side, more renewables, clean fuel generators, energy storage and demand response facilities are emerging. The transmission and distribution grid is becoming more digitalized and intelligent driven by self-healing technology, proactive outage management and real time asset condition monitoring. Enabled by smart meters and big data analytics, customers have more choices and greater control of their energy consumption.
