Energy Research Seminar Series

The energy research seminar series aims to facilitate discussion and ideas exchange among different stakeholders to promote a sustainable energy future for Hong Kong. With recent discussions over energy mix and future energy supply, updates on sustainable energy technologies, policy and application experiences from other cities on sustainable energy, the proposed seminar series will provide new perspectives in moving towards a green energy future for Hong Kong. Seminars will cover diverse topics, such as smart grids, renewable energy, demand-side-management, nuclear power, green buildings, energy stakeholder/consumer engagement, electricity market reforms, energy pricing, and business model innovation.
