In normal times, Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is one of the world’s busiest airports, handling more than a flight a minute at peak times and moving over five million tonnes of cargo a year.
Its success relies on a failsafe, uninterrupted, round-the-clock power supply – and, as the world moves towards a zero-carbon future, sustainable energy management and energy saving have become top priorities.
To help HKIA better manage its energy consumption, CLP Power worked together with Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) to use innovation to put green technologies to their most effective use.
“We weren’t content with going down the conventional route of just suggesting equipment upgrades to improve our customer’s energy performance,” explains CLP Power's Deputy Director of Corporate Customer Experience K.Y. Lo.
Collaborating with AA, CLPe Solutions Limited (CLPeS), and their business partners, CLP Power came up with two ingenious energy solutions for HKIA: The city’s largest battery energy storage system (BESS), and a smart predictive air conditioning control system.
