Renewable Energy Forum
In view of the need for local renewable energy, FoE (HK), Carbon Care Asia and the Open University of Hong Kong jointly organised the "Renewable Energy Forum: Achievable & Affordable” on 15 August 2016 to explore the feasible options of developing renewable energy in Hong Kong. Around a hundred people attended the forum, many of them were stakeholders from the Government, business and civil society, including Deputy Secretary for the Environment, Mr. Vincent Liu, Principal Assistant Secretary for the Environment, Ms. Dorothy Ma, and representatives of the power utilities and green groups.
A number of justifications to support Hong Kong 's 10% renewable energy target have been raised in the forum. We urge the Government to adopt a feed-in tariff policy for the 2018 Scheme of Control Agreements to drive the development of local renewable energy and tackle climate change to meet our obligations under the Paris Agreement.
