Green Facilities

Classrooms at All Floors

  • Motion Sensors: If they detect no one inside the rooms, the air conditioners and lights will be turned off automatically
  • Carbon Dioxide Sensors: The fresh air exchange and pre-coolers will be turned on only when the concentration of carbon dioxide exceeds the standard
  • T5 fluorescent tubes: help conserve energy
  • Auto-dimmers: If sunlight is strong, the lights by the windows will be dimmed automatically
  • Solar PV Panels outside windows: Turn sunlight into electrical energy and minimize heat radiation from getting into the rooms, hence lowering energy used for cooling

Special Room Block

  • Double glazed windows: reduce noise and minimize heat radiation
  • Solar PV Panels outside windows on 6/F: Turn sunlight into electrical energy and minimize heat radiation from getting into the rooms, hence lowering energy used for cooling
  • Shading device: Reduce light from getting into the rooms, hence lowering energy used for cooling

Roof

  • Solar tracking Photovoltic (PV) panels
  • PV panels fixed at 22 degrees to the horizon: to enhance efficiency
  • PV panels over outdoor cooling units: convert solar energy to electrical energy and at the same time cover the cooling units to enhance efficiency of cooling
  • PV panels with water tubes: convert solar energy to electrical energy and at the same time heat up water for bathing
  • Water chiller plants: high efficiency cooling
  • Vertical wind turbine: converts wind energy to electrical energy. Optimized for urban environment
  • Sun tubes: lead sunlight to the Physics Laboratory by fibre-glass
  • Roof top garden: lowers temperature and removes carbon dioxide
  • Solar powered water sprinklers
  • Automatic weather station: beams real time weather data to classrooms to control use of air conditioning

Fifth Floor

  • LED light plates

Fourth Floor

  • Sunlight collecting glass canopy: allows sunlight to reach the covered playground
  • Mid-air organic farm
  • Rainwater collection tanks

Third Floor

  • Aquafarm

 

Hall

Variable speed fans

LED sport lights

Electricity regeneration Lift

recovers gravitational potential energy as electrical energy when the lift goes up and down
