Zero Carbon Building (ZCB), the first zero carbon building in Hong Kong, is specifically designed for the sub-tropical urban context. It demonstrates state-of-the-art eco-building design and technologies and at the same time, promote sustainable living to the community. Performing “energy-plus”, ZCB generates on-site renewable energy for its own operational energy consumption on an annual basis and exports surplus energy to the grid to offset its embodied energy. Priority is placed on energy demand control by effective passive building design and energy-efficient active systems to enable cost-effective implementation of renewable energy technologies.
