Administration and vetting procedures

Administration

Applications are administered by the Environment Bureau (ENB) and the Electrical and Mechanical Services Trading Fund (EMSTF).

Vetting Procedures

An Energy Conservation Projects Vetting Subcommittee (Vetting Subcommittee) has been established under the ECF Committee to consider the applications. The Subcommittee comprises representatives of the ECF Committee and other members may also be co-opted into the subcommittee if such is considered necessary by the ECF Committee. The Vetting Subcommittee can approve an amount up to HK$2,000,000 for an application. For funding applications exceeding HK$2,000,000, the recommendations of the Vetting Subcommittee have to be endorsed by the ECF Committee. Information of the approved projects will be uploaded onto the websites of the Buildings Energy Efficiency Funding Schemes.

The following steps will be taken after an application is received —

Step 1: Upon receipt of an application by the EMSTF, an interim reply will be sent to the applicant to acknowledge receipt of the application. Where necessary, the EMSTF will request the applicant to provide clarification or supplementary information.
Step 2: The application will be considered at the Vetting Subcommittee meeting (which will usually be held on a quarterly basis).
Step 3:

For funding applications of or below HK$2,000,000, the Vetting Subcommittee will either approve the application, reject it or request the applicant to provide further information. The Vetting Subcommittee will also consider the budget, and where necessary, amend the budget details and set ceilings for individual expenditure items. The Vetting Subcommittee Secretariat will inform the applicant of the Vetting Subcommittee's decision. The Vetting Subcommittee Secretariat will also upload information of the approved projects on the Buildings Energy Efficiency Funding Schemes website.

For funding applications above HK$2,000,000, the Vetting Subcommittee will either recommend the application for consideration by the ECF Committee, reject it or request the applicant to provide further information.

For projects that further information is required from the applicant, the EMSTF will inform the applicant of the required information. The Vetting Subcommittee Secretariat will circulate the applicant's responses to the Vetting Subcommittee members. Members will make a final decision either at the forthcoming meeting or by sending in their views to the Secretariat. The Vetting Subcommittee Secretariat will inform the applicant of the Vetting Subcommittee's decision as soon as practicable.

Step 4: The ECF Committee will consider funding applications above HK$2,000,000 that have been recommended by the Vetting Subcommittee. The ECF Committee Secretariat will inform the applicant of the ECF Committee's decision. The Secretariat will also upload information of the approved projects on the Buildings Energy Efficiency Funding Schemes website.
