|I&T Wish||Free Cooling by Cooling Towers of Water-cooled Air-conditioning System
(REF : W-0057)
|Summary and Challenges||
Every year, there are several months with relatively low temperature and low relative humidity In Hong Kong. Currently air-conditioning systems are operated to cater for internal heat even in these colder months, resulting in energy wastage.This project aims to develop a water-side free cooling system whereby weather and operation data will be collected and analysed to build an optimisation algorithm of free cooling in Hong Kong. A two-year pilot scheme will be introduced to collect data over the winter months for algorithm development and verification.
|Expected Outcome||This project aims to develop a water side free cooling system by cooling towers for energy saving.|
|Expected Trial Duration||24 months|
Development and completion of a two-year pilot scheme for a water-side free cooling system
|Propose I&T Solution||Closed|
