Abstract: Energy has been a driving force for mankind's development. However, rapid energy production to satisfy ever-increasing economic growth leads to environmental impacts, which might constrain the development. Beginning in the 1970s, many cost-effective technical improvements in energy end-use efficiency have emerged. This prompts the use of an integrated approach, incorporating supply- and demand-side measures together with policy mechanisms, to handle the energy resources planning, which, in turn, enables economic growth be maintained in conjunction with significantly slower growth in the energy supply and reduction in the related environmental impacts. In this paper, the basic methodology of the integrated approach is outlined and illustrative case studies on its use with renewable energy sources in Hong Kong's electricity industry are presented. The results confirm the effectiveness of the approach for improving end-use efficiency and reducing pollution impacts.
