Technical Seminar on Deploying Artificial Intelligence into Action for Driving Energy Optimisation

Details and Organizers
Date:  16 March 2021 (Tuesday)
Time:   6:30pm – 8:00pm
Venue: Online Seminar via zoom
Organizers: ASHRAE Hong Kong Charter / HKIE Building Services Division / CIBSE Hong Kong Region

Programme Highlight:
In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has undergone a remarkable development. AI works best when large amounts of data are available. This characteristic is particularly suitable for the building energy management field where large sets of building operating data can be obtained through building management systems (BMS). This seminar discusses how AI can be used to optimise energy use of central chiller plants. A comparison of different optimisation methods is made to illustrate the advantages and limitations of each optimisation method. Apart from real-time optimisation, AI can be used to predict cooling load for optimal morning start-up. A typical office building in Hong Kong is used to demonstrate the above applications.
