15 June 2019: Forum on “Practical Solutions of Solar Energy in Hong Kong”「太陽能在香港如何落地? 」論壇

As a continual effort of the Government of the HKSAR to promote the use of renewable energy and in line with the "Hong Kong's Climate Change Action Plan 2030+", the Feed-In Tariff (FiT) Scheme was officially launched in 2018, further encouraging grid connections of small-scale and residential solar renewable energy (RE) systems at very preferential "buy-back" rates.

A year has passed since then. HKGSA, in collaboration with CityU, is organizing this half-day forum to recap what had been achieved in the past year, to showcase successful RE projects, to share difficulties encountered in practical solar RE system planning / implementation processes, and to suggest ways forward to further enhance the FiT Scheme to better fulfill its original objectives.

Speakers include Ir Alfred SIT Wing-hang, JP, Director of EMSD, Prof. YANG Hong-xing, Professor at PolyU and President of the Solar Energy Society of Hong Kong, as well as representatives from utilities and contractors. A panel discussion will be conducted at the end of the Forum to give an opportunity for the audiences to have some interactive Q&A and discussions with the speakers.

The Forum is completely Free of Charge, but seats are very limited and will be reserved on first-come-first-serve basis. Please registered quickly before very limited spaces run out.

27 November 2018 - Seminar on "Lantau Tomorrow – Is it A Great Vision?"

The Chief Executive has recently announced the "Lantau Tomorrow" vision in her 2018 Policy. Lantau is a double gateway to the World and the rapidly growing Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Taking this strategic locational advantage, Lantau and its adjoining areas offer tremendous opportunities to meet challenges of Hong Kong, such as high demand for housing land and quality living environment, traffic congestion in between New Territories and urban area, inadequate social welfare facilities particularly for the aging population, lack of solution space for urban renewal and keen global economic competition etc.

While some consider the "Lantau Tomorrow" a visionary plan guiding the sustainable growth of Hong Kong in the future 20-30 years, some others criticize it as a White Elephant.

HKGSA has therefore timely organized the said seminar to facilitate an evidence-based discussion to help everyone better understand this initiative, to be delivered by Mr. Robin K. B. LEE, Head of Sustainable Lantau Office of CEDD at the CityU. The seminar was successfully concluded as scheduled. Please click here for photos during the seminar.
