Light Tube Installation at EMSD Headquarters
Ten numbers of light tubes have been installed on the roof of the EMSD Headquarters, for illuminating the corridor in the floor underneath.
Solar absorption air-conditioning system for research purpose, University of Hong Kong
A solar absorption air conditioning system was built by the University of Hong Kong for research purpose.

Examples of concentrating solar power installations in other places
As CSP systems have not been installed in Hong Kong, example installations in other places are described here.
Trough System - Kramer Junction, California, USA
Total generating capacity of this concentrating solar power station is 150MW.
Dish/Engine System - University of Nevada Las Vagas, USA
The Nevada 1 MW Solar Dish-Engine was set up to demonstrate the dish/engine power generation system, and for collecting data on the performance, operation, and reliability of the system.
Power Tower System - Solar One Power Tower System, Southern California, USA
The Solar One 10MWe pilot power tower plant operated from 1982 to 1988 as a demonstration project to prove the technical feasibility of solar power tower technology. During its operational period, the system was available for more than 80 percent of the time. This system was then replaced by the larger Solar Two demonstration project.
