Smart buildings use a diverse variety of technology and solutions to benefit users while also delivering efficiencies to building managers and other stakeholders. Smart building solutions are replacing traditional Building Management Systems, and property owners that adopt new technology stand to gain more in terms of increased economic value. There are many opportunities to supplement current building assets management with innovative solutions in both buildings and workplaces.
CLP’s Smart Energy Connect provides Digital Solutions for Smart, Sustainable Buildings,which provides detailed perspectives on developing smart building solutions in Hong Kong, including market forecasts, evolving customer expectations, and critical enabling technologies.Buildings and utilities have a finite lifetime, and the value of a building or utility to your organization will vary over the course of that lifecycle. When it comes to asset management, it is designed to assist your organization in obtaining the most possible value from its assets while finding the appropriate balance between performance improvement, risk reduction, and cost optimization, among other things.
Developing Long-Term Sustainability Solutions
The ability to efficiently manage your assets, whether your company is involved in developing new buildings or currently owns one or more, is critical when it comes to increasing revenues while reducing environmental footprint.Technological advancements are ushering in a new era of energy use in megacities such as Hong Kong. The way we interact with and utilize buildings has radically changed due to the introduction of more interactive and sophisticated energy-saving management systems that make buildings more sustainable and energy-efficient, among other things.
It should be no surprise that environmentally friendly building design has been a popular trend in recent years. Architecture firms and building management companies increasingly include sustainability solutions, whether energy-efficient lightbulbs, intelligent sensors, or anything else that may help to minimize energy waste.
Buildings require heavy physical laboras well as constant monitoring of the facility’s conditions. Among the many tasks that a building manager and their team must do are inspections, temperature checks, equipment checks, moisture management, alarm settings, security breaches, etc. Manually doing all of this is time-consuming, but it also forces employees to perform repetitive and often reactive activities rather than focusing their time on forwarding planning and prevention.
Change is unavoidable in the energy industry, and it is even more so during a global health emergency like the current one. In response to the changing world around us, we are continuing our journey towards becoming a utility of the future by making diverse, strategic investments in new business models and technological innovations. Throughout our history, CLP has recognized the need to periodically re-evaluating and realigning the operations in response to changing external conditions and regulations.
