Abstract

Renewable energy (RE) can play an important role in meeting the ultimate goal of replacing fossil fuels to generate sustainable inexhaustible, clean and safe energy. Solar and wind energy systems have been identified as having potential for wide-scale applications in Hong Kong. Locally, wind turbines and photovoltaic (PV) are not commonly installed in building developments. The barriers include high initial cost, limited installation space available and the heavily obstructed external environments. The appropriate place for the installation of such systems may be on the roof of low-rise buildings located in low-density zones. Photovoltaic (PV) panels are basically without any mechanical component. As wind turbines can operate 24 hours a day, their electricity generation costs are generally lower than those incurred using PV systems. Grid-connection to an electricity power system can eliminate batteries and associated accessories. An institutional building located in a low-density area installed a number of wind turbines and PV panels. Recently, the PV system has been connected into the power grid. This paper presents the work on such RE facilities. Technical data including measured solar irradiance, wind speed and output power generated were analyzed and reported. The energy, environmental and economic aspects and design implications are discussed.
