Abstract: The latest (4/04 and 5/04) versions of the Hong Kong Building Environmental Assessment Method (HK-BEAM), one covering new buildings and the other existing buildings, have been formally launched in 2005. The paper describes the building energy performance assessment method in these latest HK-BEAM versions. With the use of the energy budget approach, the assessment framework is applicable to a wide range of buildings that may comprise different mixes of premises types. The new scheme provides bonus credits for provisions that allow utilization of renewable energy sources. For existing buildings, it makes allowances for plant performance degradation and constraints to implementation of improvement measures in existing buildings. So far, the new assessment method has been applied to six building developments, including commercial complexes and residential developments. The assessment results are presented and discussed in the paper.
