Hong Kong Electric Smart Power Campaign is an annual event to promote energy efficiency and conservation messages among the public, in particular the younger generations. As part of this year’s Smart Power Campaign, HK Electric has launched “HK Electric Low Carbon App”, a smartphone application, to promote low carbon lifestyle. The app offers a convenient way for customers to switch e-bills, check carbon footprint, learn to cook low carbon meals as well as picking up trendy glossaries related to the subject.
The “HK Electric Low Carbon App” was launched for free downloads to provide a trendy and easy way to users to learn more about a low carbon lifestyle anytime, anywhere, attracting over 15,000 downloads during the year.
Award winning application
The “HK Electric Low Carbon App” received great recognition by the public as it was awarded as the My Top 10 Favorite Hong Kong Apps Awards 2011 at Apps@Smartphone Asia Expo 2011.
1. Backend integration
Users can login with their existing “Account-On-Line” service account and retrieve account information such as 25 month electricity consumption record and e-Bill.
2. Data encryption for member account
All membership data is encrypted with the 128-bit advance data encryption. All confidential personal data will be coded and cannot be interpreted or altered without using a specific defined key which allows users to view account information securely with the app.
Over 200 low carbon recipes were offered for users to start their low carbon living style. It also provides regular promotion offer for mobile users and allows them to register cooking courses and interest classes at Hong Kong Electric Home Management Centre.
Instead of purely listing all the low carbon living tips, this app aims to encourage users to create their own low carbon living style. The Electricity Calculator feature allows them to estimate electricity consumption according to their saving plan.
To help families face this dilemma, Ageas has launched an iPhone App called “Love Your Kid’s Future”. This easy-to-use calculator will tell you how much it will cost for your kids to receive the education they need to achieve their dream career. Anyone can use this calculator anytime and anywhere.
