ENERGY & CLIMATE

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

We believe that Hong Kong as an international city, is well placed to become an advanced low-carbon city, and a model for other cities in China. High technology should not be the ultimate goal but used alongside effective demand side management and a reflection on our current development model.

WHAT WE DO

 

The key approaches FoE (HK) takes are to:

  • Lobby the government to offer demand side management solutions;

 

  • Advocate for energy efficiency in buildings since they account for about 89% of the total electricity consumption in Hong Kong;

 

  • Expose the hidden problem of light pollution which poses health threat to people, and increase public awareness of this issue;

 

  • Engage the public, businesses, organizations and schools with our Power Smart contest to promote the low carbon life style and business model.
