Abstract: For typical high-rise residential building in Hong Kong, we evaluated the impact of using switchable glazing on energy use for space cooling. By using software EnergyPlus, it was found that application of switchable glazing would lead to a reduction in annual cooling electricity consumption by up to 6.6% where the actual amount depends on existence of overhangs, orientation of building wings, types and locations of rooms. Energy saving by this magnitude, however, cannot justify use of switchable glazing in residential buildings in Hong Kong, mainly because of the high glazing cost.
