With more than 42,000 buildings in the private sector, Hong Kong’s buildings sector is responsible for 90% of the city’s electricity consumption and 60% of greenhouse gas emissions. If this trend continues, Hong Kong will continue to become an ‘urban heat island’. In order to achieve the city’s goal of reducing carbon intensity by up to 70%, our team has developed a Smart Adaptive Façade System that can be attached to existing and new buildings and reduce HVAC load by up to 50%. The system can be retrofitted into existing structures through a steel anchor which is connected to the façade support frame which will enable Azumos façade panels to be integrated. Photodetectors in the system will then respond to changes in the direction of sunlight and instruct the panel to filter the solar radiation reaching the building to minimize HVAC load. Solar panels can also be incorporated into the panel, allowing the building to harvest renewable energy. Utilizing our Façade System, both building owners and occupants will reduce their operational cost and improve their indoor environment. Additionally, the retrofit also depicts their corporate social responsibility in tackling climate change and commitment to provide a positive impact to the environment.
