Conclusions

Data Transparency & Availability

The 'Others' in end-user dataset of the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) refers to the combined data of shopping malls, hotels, education, health, storage, public service and other miscellaneous commercials and so on. However, EMSD has no detailed breakdown of energy consumption of the above segment. It is not easy to identify which segment is liable for the surge in energy consumption over the years. More research resources should be allocated to the EMSD to perform a more detailed research on specific segment that facilitates data collection and disclosure.
