This paper presents a brief review of current Demand Side Management (DSM) programmes and activities In Hong Kang, and then reports on a study in a hotel building where the electrical load profiles have been continuously monitored. A number of EDS opportunities for various building services Installations have been identified through the analysis of the load profiles recorded, including the energy efficient lights programmes and load shifting for the central chiller plant. In addition, the extended use of capacitor bonk for power factor Improvement and the use of distributed generation to offset on exceptionally higher than normal electrical demand for a short duration may be effective in reducing electrical demand.
