Average annual electricity use per gross floor area is 236kWh/m2yr for offices and 366kWh/m2yr for hotels. HVAC and lighting account for 70–80% of total energy in fully air-conditioned commercial buildings in Hong Kong and should be a priority for energy management programmes. © 1994, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
