We are pleased to advise that there is continuous energy saving since academic year 2016/17; and a total of 59 MWh energy (HK$75,000) has been saved in the period between September and June (10 months) in academic year 2018/19, as compared with that of the same period in academic year 2017/18.

Since the University has participated in the “Energy Saving Charter 2019 / 4Ts Charter” campaign, organized by the Environment Bureau and the Electrical & Mechanical Services Department, we would like to call for your continuous support to this campaign.
