The chapter investigates the potential energy-efficient solutions for highrise buildings in urban cities in the Greater Bay Area (GBA) of China. The solutions start from innovative elevator designs that embrace the use of intelligence systems. Smart system maintenance methods are proposed for the existing elevators in old buildings. Total replacement is considered unnecessary since modernization and upgrades would offer a value-for-money option. Energy can be saved through upgrading the control system that enables better comfort on each ride. Such innovation in energy saving from the operations of elevators in high-rise buildings is expected to make substantial contributions to reduction in electricity consumption under the swift urbanization of the GBA.
