Buildings are responsible for about 92% of the total energy end-use in Hong Kong, of which above 70% is from the commercial sector. Most of the buildings in Hong Kong are high-rise, and approximately 15% of the total building stock is commercial buildings. Despite the considerable improvement in the understanding of the life cycle energy use of office buildings, there is still a lack of research into the life cycle energy demand of high-rise office buildings. Such knowledge is however essential for facilitating building energy conservation in the high-rise urban environment. The aim of this paper is to investigate the life cycle energy use of high-rise office buildings. The research was carried out through a critical literature review and case studies of ten real-life high-rise office buildings in Hong Kong. Results show that the life cycle energy consumption is 51.78â73.64Â GJ/m2 over the 50-year study period. Building operation consumes 78â89% and the rest (i.e. 11â22%) is taken by the embodied energy. Despite the distinction in terms of the amount of embodied energy between high-rise buildings and low-rise counterparts, no clear correlation is found between building height and embodied energy intensity. Moreover, energy use for material manufacturing and transport should be prioritised in reducing the embodied energy, of which the transport energy needs to be taken into extra consideration for the case of Hong Kong. The findings should inform construction industry participants of the significant potential in reducing the embodied energy of high-rise office buildings. The paper profiles the life cycle energy use of high-rise office buildings and should be important for the policy formulation towards the holistic energy conservation in high-rise buildings over their lifespans.
