[1] Offices in QGO and APB Centre represent a majority of total ArchSD office space. Total ArchSD office area is assumed to be 24,955.2 m2 (10,844.4 m2 for APB and 14,110.8 m2 for QGO 31/F& 33/F-41/F). The percentage of electricity consumption of the whole premises for ArchSD office at APB & QGO is assumed to be 100% and 20% respectively.
[2] Territory wide default GHG emission factors (0.7) were used based on the Guidelines to Account for and Report on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Removals for buildings (Commercial, Residential or Institutional Purpose) in Hong Kong issued by the Environmental Protection Department, HKSAR in February 2010.
[3] The data obtained from 2007 onwards take Building Energy Code (BEC) 2007 as the baseline. Energy efficient features refer to air-conditioning installations, lighting installations, hot water installations, lift & escalator installations, building energy management system and renewable energy technologies. ArchSD staff advises which project will be completed for the concerned year and then the energy template to be completed by the corresponding project officer. Total energy saved due to energy efficient installations can be summed up.
[4] In 2010, 2 large-scale completed projects including a Government Departmental Headquarters and a Hospital Extension Block contributed to the major increase. In 2011, the Tamer Development Project was completed and contributed to most of the energy saving. In 2012, the New CAD Headquarters and North Lantau Hospital Phase 1 contributed to most of the energy saving.
[5] From 2014, the electricity tariff is assumed to be HK$1.2 per kWh whereas it was assumed to be HK$1.0 per kWh on or before 2013.
