Shaping Hong Kong’s cleaner energy future will require a holistic view in our energy management approach. Continuous effort in deploying advanced technologies, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and switching to cleaner fuels on the supply side will remain as a key to reduce emissions. Equally important is maximising demand-side opportunities through enhancing energy efficiency and conservation practice in both the public and private sectors.

It is widely recognised that the potentials in smart grid, fuel efficient transport, waste-to-energy and energy efficiency are massive. Yet, the adoption and progress is far from satisfaction. Economics concerns, misguided perceptions and complexity of consumer behaviour are acting as stumbling blocks to convert intent into actions. It will take a collective effort and leadership at all levels in our society to move things further. - See more at: http://bec.org.hk/events/enviroseries-conference#sthash.IfElY4qn.dpuf

The growing demand for energy to support our city’s continuous development, combined with a need to reduce our emissions and sustain the environment, has increased the focus on cleaner energy. High on the sustainability agenda is the formulation of a long-term and environmentally sustainable energy strategy that enables Hong Kong to stay ahead of future challenges. This calls for clear policies, cross-sector collaborations and social innovation.
