The Asian Energy Studies Centre (AESC) (renamed in September 2014; previously the Hong Kong Energy Studies Centre) is a university-supported Category-II research centre based in the Faculty of Social Sciences at Hong Kong Baptist University. The AESC aims to be an internationally recognised hub for sustainable energy studies on the Asian region. We are committed to pursuing excellence in academic research in the areas of sustainable energy, with particular focus from the perspectives of governance in the Asian context. We promote informed energy decision-making and improve energy policies in this region, including Hong Kong, by creating new knowledge, providing practical policy recommendations, promoting knowledge exchange, and facilitating stakeholder engagement. We undertake interdisciplinary collaborative research projects, organize academic workshops, public seminars and other engagement events.
