Ground Operation Energy-saving Actions

EVA Air is not only devoted to energy-saving and carbon reduction measures for aircrafts. We continuously push for for energy-saving actions for ground operations. In 2015, the overall Energy Use Intensity(EUI) was 134.71kWh/m2, 27.7% lower than the office building EUI reference value of 186.2 kWh/m2 stated in the building electricity consumption reference index published by the Bureau of Energy, Ministry of Economic Affairs. Additionally, the introduction of the ISO 500001 Energy Management System in 2015 marks yet another step towards the goal of sustainable management through the implementation of ground operation energy-saving measures.


Lighting Fixture Energy Conservation Project

In 2015, EVA Nankan Park underwent interior renovations and restoration of the building’s exterior wall. In the same year, a total of 1515 units of traditional T8 or T9 fluorescent tubes were replaced by LED lighting fixtures with lower power consumption. The new lighting maintains the same level of brightness for office employees, yet at the same time offers higher energy conversion efficiency and greatly reduces electricity usage. Furthermore, for areas which do not require continuous illumination, automatic infrared sensor switch devices are being successively installed to avoid wasting electricity.

Air Conditioning System Energy Conservation Project

Indoor air conditioning is the main item for power consumption in the office area. In 2015, alongside the introduction of the ISO 50001 Energy Management System, reduction in the electricity usage of the air conditioner was also set as the top-priority target. Besides utilizing the energy-efficient Variable Air Volume (VAV) system on the air exit side of the air conditioner, a highly efficient inverter air conditioning system is used to flexibly adjust the number of times the chilled water system operates, and variable frequency equipment is installed onto the zone pumps and cooling towers. In addition, since August 2015, the water temperature produced by the air conditioning chilled water system has received a reasonable uniform adjustment by the EVA Nankan Park Air Conditioning Energy Center to reduce electricity consumption and waste.

Television Set Replacement

In conjunction with the EVA Nankan Park interior renovation, the Company’s old television sets are progressively replaced by LCD televisions with a lower power consumption of 72W since 2015. The replacement is expected to be completed by July 2016.
