2. Example Projects in Hong Kong

A number of renewable energy systems have been installed in Hong Kong by government departments, private sector, schools and education centres in the territories for application, research, demonstration and education purposes. These include solar PV systems, solar water heating systems, wind energy systems, landfill gas power generation systems of various capacities. A list of renewable energy projects in Hong Kong is available in the Example Projects section.

3. Sponsorship in Hong Kong

The Sponsorship section of this website provides information on sponsorship and funding schemes offered by the Government and the private sector.

4. Renewable Energy Research Centres in Hong Kong

Development of renewable energy is in an early stage in Hong Kong and research on renewable energy is being conducted in some of the local tertiary institutions. Due to the geographical and resource availability constraints, only a few types of renewable technologies are considered to be suitable for wider application in Hong Kong. Therefore the local new and renewable energy research activities mainly focus on solar energy, wind energy, biodiesel and fuel cell technologies.
