Example Projects

List of photovoltaic (PV) Projects

The lists given below (through hyperlinks) are not meant to be exhaustive. For the list of examples of government-funded projects, some smaller projects and latest projects are not included. For the list of examples of non-government projects, it is compiled from the Survey on Renewable Energy Installations, which started in late 2006, along with information gathered from other sources.

The Survey on Renewable Energy Installations is an on-going exercise. The survey questionnaire can be downloaded from the main page of Example Projects.

Some of the PV projects are described below, with photos.

EMSD Headquarters PV Installations

A 350 kW photovoltaic (PV) installation has been installed on the roof of the New EMSD Headquarters in Kowloon Bay. This installation comprises a solar array made up of more than 2,300 PV modules which together has a total area of around 3,180 m2, and a smaller system made up of PV glass laminates.

Each PV module in the solar array is constructed in the form of a rectangular panel and consists of 72 series-connected mono-crystalline silicon PV cells. The panels are mounted on supporting racks in an inclined manner and facing southwards so as to receive maximum solar irradiation during the year.

In addition to these, PV glass laminates are installed on the viewing gallery on the roof of the building. There are totally 20 sets of PV glass laminates, each consisting of 100 series-connected mono-crystalline PV cells sandwiched between two sheets of glass.

The d.c. output of the installation is converted into a.c. by a number of inverters. The a.c. power generated by the PV installation supplements the electricity supply from the power company to meet the electrical power requirement of the building.
