Workshop on Renewable Energy and Feed-in-tariff in Hong Kong
HKU was the pioneer in investigating the technical aspects on grid-connection of small renewable energy systems. Various experiments and pilot study were conducted at HKU before the Hong Kong Government published a set of technical guidelines on grid-connection. Also, a pilot project was funded by the ITC to install three different kinds of photovoltaic technologies at the S.K.H. Kei Wai (MaWan) Primary School. There is much experience built upon those pilot projects and study regarding the technical details of grid-connection of Renewable Energy (RE) systems. Although much of the information had been published, it was not well disseminated to the local engineers in a systematic way. With the imminent effect of feed-in-tariff in 2018, the number of grid-connect RE systems in Hong Kong is expected to grow significantly in the coming years, and hence the need to transfer the knowledge to community will be valuable to the industry and local community. The workshop will deliver information on different aspects, including the technical requirements on grid connection of renewable energy systems, relevant policies, the financial arrangement, etc.
