Jane Wong got a taste for sustainability when she joined CLP’s internship programme in 2015. “Helping out at different energy conservation events, I was impressed by CLP’s commitment to sustainability. It became something I wanted to pursue for my career,” she explains.
She joined CLP as a graduate trainee in 2017 and is now an account manager in the Customer Success & Experience department where she works with business customers to find out how CLP’s energy management solutions can help them achieve long-term sustainability goals.
“As an established public utility company, CLP spares no effort when it comes to promoting energy saving and decarbonisation,” says Jane. “I am fortunate to have participated in major projects, such as the Eco-Building Fund and Energy Audit programmes.”
Jane is a core team member of a pilot scheme studying the effectiveness of a variable time-of-use pricing scheme for electric vehicles (EVs), which incentivises EV owners to charge their vehicles during non-peak hours.
The scheme also helps building owners better manage the electricity loading, reducing the need for investment in additional power capacity to meet the rise in electricity demand driven by EVs.
“EVs reduce roadside pollution and help increase the use of clean energy, but they also bring about a significant surge in electricity demand. What I do is to help analyse electricity usage by customers to pave the way for the popularisation of EVs,” Jane says.
