Although the Unit conducts research for energy & environmental policy analysis in Hong Kong, the research results and methodologies to be developed can be generalized for other applications. Mainly, we have the following research topics.
- Benchmarking - With the database, we use benchmarking methods to develop energy use performance indexes for different sectors by means of DEA and Statistical methods.
- Decomposition Analysis - Index decomposition method is used to analyze the changes in energy intensity in order to provide a footprint of energy & environmental, and energy intensity for policy analysis. Based on the consultancy experience, we have developed the methods to conduct decomposition analysis.
- Energy intensity model - An energy intensity model is to be modeled by LEAP which is one of the popular energy modeling tools. With this energy intensity model, we can provide ad hoc policy analysis.
