In a recent episode of RTHK’s The Pulse on the segment of renewable energy development in China and in Hong Kong, Dr. Kevin Lo discussed the potential Hong Kong has in developing renewable energy systems. Compared to other parts of China, Dr. Kevin Lo stated, “Hong Kong has one of the best solar radiation in the country, so we cannot really argue that Hong Kong is not suitable for solar development.”

Hong Kong, a signatory of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, has committed towards a goal of cutting its carbon emissions by up to 36% and its carbon intensity by up to 70% by 2030. However, Hong Kong has yet to commit to a renewable energy target.
