Every manager and engineer can accept that continuous improvement is required if increasing
demands for energy and carbon efficiency are to be met. Yet most facilities in Hong Kong
have never had an independent investment grade energy audit completed one time, let alone
at regular intervals. This presentation will address the reason for this situation, and suggest a
way forward.
Robert Allender is a well-known energy management expert who founded his professional
services firm, Energy Resources Management, in 1992. Just as the name indicates, ERM
manages its clients’ energy resources, effectively acting as clients’ defacto Vice President of
Energy Management. Robert was the first person in Asia to receive CEM accreditation. He is
also a CEA and a Fellow of HKAEE.
