Blue Sky Energy Technologies Limited, Hong Kong

The Blue Sky Project aims to reduce energy usage and enhance indoor air quality (IAQ) in the NGO sector, as well as facilitate behavioural change among this target population through the transparent availability of energy data and user-centric engagement. The project partners with 4 non-governmental organizations, including Hong Kong Christian Service, Hong Kong Playground Association, Hong Kong Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA), and Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council. ZeShan Foundation and Lee Hysan Foundation are the strategic partners and sponsors of the project, which has the full support of the Hong Kong Council of Social Service.

Service Scope

  • 51 service locations with different facilities such as offices, campsites, and stadiums, which collectively provide diverse services ranging from youth service, education, social service, elderly care, rehabilitation, etc.
  • 1,500+ staff engagement
  • 290+ smart energy meters and 100+ IAQ sensors installation
  • Secure log-in account for web dashboard and mobile app
  • Data granularity of each centre, separated into air conditioning, light, and socket load
  • Notification and alerts which prompt energy and IAQ abnormality investigation
  • Weekly consumption report for energy and IAQ review
  • Energy usage comparison against other locations and benchmarks

 

Blue Sky SAVE Model

In order to make energy saving and IAQ enhancement transparent and actionable, the Blue Sky SAVE Model is applied:

Signal – Smart sensors collects data and processes in server

Action – Experimental energy saving actions are encouraged by centre managers and Blue Sky engagement programs

Verification & Reward – Weekly summaries are analysed by Blue Sky AI and emailed to centres

Evaluation – Quarterly evaluation on engagement level

 

Digital Engagement

Users receive weekly summary emails of their energy and IAQ performance, accompanied by notifications and recommended actions to enhance their performance. The Blue Sky AI model determines a daily energy budget, which is informed by past energy usage patterns and real-time environmental factors. Paired with real-time analytics, the AI model triggers a notification to users when their actual energy usage is higher than that which was budgeted. In another element of performance feedback, users are also provided with visualizations of their energy usage and IAQ compared to external benchmarks, along with targeted areas of improvement and action tips to reach these goals.

Offline Engagement

Staff members at each service location can volunteer to be Blue Sky Ambassadors, and would receive in-depth training and attend workshops to establish a deep understanding of the energy usage and IAQ patterns of their premises. With this foundation of knowledge, Ambassadors are encouraged to derive action plans to facilitate behavioural change around energy usage. To aid this effort, collateral materials such as reusable cutlery, posters, and upcycled gadget stands are made available at all service locations to nudge users towards sustainable choices and energy conservation in their daily operations.

Energy visits are regularly carried out by Blue Sky energy experts at every service location to investigate the sites’ energy usage and IAQ patterns. In collaboration with Blue Sky Ambassadors, this initiative can facilitate the discussion and discovery of creative and user-centric ways to reduce energy usage and improve indoor air quality across the NGO sector.

Heading 02 (H3)

When an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit…Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

When an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Green Long March

Future Generations China & Beijing Forestry University, China

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

The Green Long March was a youth environmental action movement initiated in 2007 by Future Generations China and Beijing Forestry University.  The Green Long March aimed to educate university students and grassroots communities along the march routes about conservation and nature protection.  Critical regional issues that have been taken up by participating students from across China include water quality, green agricultural practices, biodiversity, and renewable energy.  In 2010, 53 universities from around the country participated in the Green Long March and related activities.  The initiatives gave students the opportunity to develop leadership capabilities and strengthen research and analytical skills.  To date, the Green Long March has involved two million students and local residents along the routes.

ZeShan Foundation supported the Yellow River route of the Green Long March from 2008 to 2010, including research and outreach initiatives, the “Green Seed Award” which provides funds for hands-on environmental projects, and a national forum that facilitates sharing and dialogue among students, environmentalists, academia, and policy makers.
