GGT SSC Smartmeter System


Text Area


The Jockey Club Global Graduate Tower (GGT) Smart Campus is a project under the Sustainable Smart Campus as a Living Lab (SSC).

This SSC project is going to install advanced technologies to monitor student hall energy consumption and provide an improved and efficient online payment system for power consumption in each bedroom. This will be done by installing smart meters to record the room’s electrical energy consumption and populate the data into the IBM IoT cloud for analysis.

To learn more about the SSC project, please visit HERE.

Student Housing and Residential Life Office (SHRLO) provides daily operational admin support for the system installed in GGT.

Monthly Utility Charges Invoice

GGT resident(s) in each bedroom is required to settle a monthly invoice for utility charges combining the following two fees:

  1. a fixed monthly fee $100 for common areas utility consumption; 
  2. a consumption fee of their assigned bedroom as measured by the Smartmeter. The utility charge for bedrooms is currently priced at a flat rate of HK$1.3/unit.

The utility charge monthly invoice will be sent to residents via ITSC email at the beginning of the subsequent month (e.g. on 1 November for October's invoice).

Different pricing schemes such as tiers with incentives could be implemented in the future subject to the discretion of the SSC project team based on educational research needs and other factors.
