Energy Saving Charter 2016
Promoting energy saving is a linchpin of our efforts in combating climate change. In Hong Kong, buildings account for about 90% of our electricity consumption, representing over 60% of greenhouse gas emissions. As the community plays an indispensable role when it comes to energy conservation, we will be launching an Energy Saving Charter in June 2016 to foster close partnership among the Government, business sector and non-governmental organisations for a community-wide sector specific campaign to save energy.

Since 2012, we have stepped up efforts in energy conservation by expanding the Charter scheme to other sectors. During June to September 2015, more than 3,000 premises of participating organisations, including over 150 shopping malls, 260 office buildings, 620 shops, 1,200 offices, 420 residential buildings / housing estates and 360 premises of Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) signed up to the Charter.

This year, while appealing for the continuous support from shopping malls, office buildings, shops, offices, residential buildings / housing estates and premises of NGOs for making the same pledge, we would like to step up efforts in energy conservation by expanding the scope of the Charter and extending invitation to primary and secondary schools, and tertiary institutions for joining the Charter.

We would appreciate your support in the following respects for Energy Saving Charter 2016 with the scope:-
a) to maintain an average indoor temperature between 24-26°C during the summer months from June to September in 2016;
b) to switch off electrical appliances when not in use from June 2016 to May 2017; and
c) to procure energy efficient appliances from June 2016 to May 2017.

Energy Saving Championship Scheme
As the community plays an indispensable role when it comes to energy conservation, we would like to appeal for supports from shopping malls, office buildings, residential buildings/ housing estates, primary and secondary schools, and tertiary education institutions by participating in the "Energy Saving Championship Scheme" (the Scheme) and setting targets to reduce your energy consumption comparable to or even exceeding Government targets, and to promote green building design and management as well.

The Scheme is to recognise leading organisations in the adoption of energy efficient technologies and equipment, application of operational optimisation of energy consuming systems (i.e. retro-commissioning), development of best practices in energy management and promotion of energy saving among tenants and occupants. Champions of each category will be invited as role models to share experience on application of energy efficient technologies and practices through visits or seminars for the trades.

We look forward to the concerted efforts of the Government and the community in promoting a healthy, liveable and sustainable environment in Hong Kong.

Technical Seminar on Hydrogen Economy in Hong Kong
With the increasing public awareness for the climate change and global warming arising from fossil fuels, researchers and policy makers have already put their focus on the development of clean and renewable energy sources. Remarkable advancements of the renewable technologies are made in recent years while new systems with better efficiency and lower cost are developed to compete with the fossil fuel. However, the renewable energy productions are usually site specific, intermittent, and thus not reliable for instantaneous supply. Hydrogen is identified as one of the potential energy carriers for future energy supply which can resolve the limitation for renewable energy production. Hydrogen is clean, renewable and harmless during the entire production and disposal cycle. In the technical talks, some oversea and local speakers are invited to share their area of excellence in hydrogen economy while their insights in application of the emerging technologies will be discussed.

Technical Visit to Solar Farm at the Siu Ho Wan Sewage Treatment Works and Organic Resources Recovery Centre, O-PARK1, at Siu Ho Wan
The Solar Farm at the Siu Ho Wan Sewage Treatment Works came into operation in 2016. The largest of its kind in Hong Kong, the solar farm comprises over 4,200 polycrystalline photovoltaic panels with an installed generation capacity of 1,100 kilowatts. The electricity generated by the solar farm will be fed through an internal power distribution network to various facilities inside the plant, which account for about 25 per cent of the current annual electricity consumption of the plant.

While the O∙PARK1 located at Siu Ho Wan is a self-sustainable food waste recycling facility. Apart from generating heat and power for internal use, it is estimated that about 14 million kWh of surplus electricity, an equivalent of the energy consumption of about 3 000 households, can be generated by O∙PARK1. It is also estimated that some 25 000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced each year. In addition, O∙PARK1 also helps the recycling of resources by generating about 6 500 tonnes of compost per year as a by-product. Since the operation of O∙PARK1 commenced in July 2018, more than 8 000 tonnes of food waste have already been treated and its treatment capacity will gradually increase.

This visit will allow participants to tour around both venues, and gain better understanding of the photo-voltaic system, the food waste treatment process as well as the 1st dry membrane fixed tank gasholder in Hong Kong.

Technical Seminar – Urbanization and Climate Change in Asia: Impacts and Adaptation
During the last twenty to thirty years, due to rapid economic growth, there has been extensive urbanization of areas of agricultural and rural land in many Asian countries.

These changes have substantially modified the exchanges of heat, moisture and energy between the land surface and the atmosphere, as well as releasing additional heat and pollutants into the atmosphere. Furthermore, in general, appropriate holistic planning of these urban developments has been minimal because many of these cities have been built over a short period of time.

The consequences of this urban expansion impacts both the global and regional climate, with cities in Asia suffering significantly in terms of climate hazards now and in the future.

In this talk, Prof. Chan from City University of Hong Kong will show how urbanization and global climate change can modify the regional climate, using examples from the Pearl River Delta of China and other mega-cities. He will discuss the probable effects of such climate hazards and the potential actions that can be undertaken by governments to reduce the consequences of such impacts.

塑膠海洋 A Plastic Ocean
Craig Leeson / 英國 香港 UK&HK / 2016 / 102mins / 英語 Eng / 中文字幕 Chi Subtitle

導演兼記者Craig Leeson參與A Plastic Ocean拍攝前,對海洋塑膠污染也無甚認識,當目睹海鳥和鯨魚因吞食大量塑膠活活餓死,貧窮的人在垃圾山掙紮求存,他自覺有改變的責任,期望電影能提供問題的全景,扭轉人的認知,推動變化。他引述其中一位受訪科學家的話:

「當你不知道,你不會在意。但當你知道,你無法不去行動。」

《塑膠海洋》A Plastic Ocean,真實揭露全球「用完即棄」的生活方式帶來的嚴重後果。電影製作時間達7年之久,走訪全球二千多個地方,旨在提升大衆對塑膠污染所造成的海洋危機的關注,拍攝團隊捕捉到海洋生態從未曝光的一面,深受震驚。塑膠污染如何進一步影響人體健康?我們可以怎樣阻止破壞繼續蔓延呢?

Technical Seminar: Coastal Challenges to Flood Management in times of Climate Change
Super-Typhoon Mangkhut 2018 caused high storm surges resulting in serious flooding in many low-lying coastal areas in Hong Kong. This reminds us of the inadequacy of our flood management infrastructure which has been well developed mainly for inland areas subject to rainfall induced floods. At the same time, with indisputable Climate Change, the mean sea levels are rising and storm surges will also be increased by more frequent Super-Typhoons due to increasingly warm Pacific Ocean temperatures. This seminar will share the Speaker’s insights into the coastal challenges to flood management in times of Climate Changes, while addressing coastal flood mitigation measures including emergency evacuation based on real-time sea level forecasting (by combining storm surge and astronomical tide predictions), coastal polders, storm surge barriers and floating structures.

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.

Public Policy Forum on Economic Opportunities of Climate Change
Climate mitigation and adaptation are often understood to be reluctant responses to climate change, as a society is obliged to redirect resources that could have been used for other purposes. Because climate change is a genuinely global environmental problem, countries are often passive about using domestic resources for mitigation. The international climate negotiations that have been conducted in the past two-and-a-half decades have been bumpy and have encountered many setbacks. The most recent dramatic reversal occurred in 2017 when President Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement.

However, economic opportunities could also emerge in our response to climate change. New industries, such as wind turbines and solar PV, have grown to provide millions of jobs worldwide. Hong Kong is positioned to benefit from the global climate efforts. These new industries demand financial and legal services as well as innovations. Hong Kong could strategically utilize climate change to strengthen its current economic pillars and nurture new ones.

Towards achieving the above objective, the forum will invite outstanding scholars from both overseas and Hong Kong to share their insights on such economic opportunities and possible ways of capitalizing on them. Since all countries and governments around the world are facing significant challenges in this policy area, this theme will make the experiences and cases in the forum highly relevant and useful to a large number of participants in policymaking and research.

The forum is open to the press and public.

Mission Healthy Greens - Diana : Star Lite Star Bright
1. Project Summary
A. This is a continuation of the 2015/16 "Mission Healthy Greens – Diana:Star Lite Star Bright" project that had successfully installed LED T8 lamps and LED light bulbs free of charge for families living in public housing estates within the Wong Tai Sin District. As of July 2016, a total of 1,168 families have benefited from this project and saved 114,443 kWh of electricity per annum, which is equivalent to a reduction of 62 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide per annum or ~HKD $120 electricity cost savings per family per annum.

2. Key Project Activities
A. Continuing our support of the Government's 2030+ target of reducing the city's carbon intensity index by 65-70%. Demonstrating that it is possible to help residents to switch to energy-efficient lighting equipment, save energy and reduce their carbon footprint.
B. We estimate the second year project will help 1,350 families to save 132,000 kWh of electricity per annum, which is equivalent to a reduction of 71 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
C. The scope of the project will expand to include three Districts: Wong Tai Sin, Kwun Tong and Shum Shui Po.
D. We will invite Universities, Environmental NGOs, Professional Associations and technology enterprises to participate in the project and offer their expertise.
E. Many government bureaus, departments and offices have agreed to participate and/or support the project, including the Environment Bureau, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department, the Water Services Department, Wong Tai Sin + Kwun Tong + Shum Shui Po District Councils and District Offices, etc.
F. More promotional and educational contents, including inviting actors/actresses as "Project Ambassadors" to promote and raise awareness of the general public on saving energy and reduce their carbon footprint.
G. In addition to installing LED T8 lamps and LED bulbs, participating families may also benefit from having WSD-approved water-efficient valves and/or showerhead installed free of charge that will help to achieve at least 5% water reduction.
H. Our partnering Government Departments, Utilities Companies and Assisting Organisations will deploy their staff volunteering teams to help replacing the old lights with LED T8 lamps and LED light bulbs, and will also conduct a general safety check of the gas appliances and electric circuitry for that household.

BEC’s Low Carbon Hong Kong Report Launch Event - Supporting Business to Set
The Paris Agreement is a game-changer. 197 countries across the world committed to the overarching objective to keep global temperature rise below 2°C, with carbon neutrality in the second half of the century. However, for the Agreement to be effective, businesses need to set targets and reduce their emissions to meet the overarching objective.

As part of BEC Climate Change Business Forum Advisory Group’s Low Carbon Hong Kong project, this report aims to convey to our members and the wider business community why it is important for them to set carbon reduction targets in line with this 2°C maximum. It explains the extent of the change needed across a number of key Hong Kong sectors to achieve this goal, and the methodologies available for setting these targets. It aims to support Hong Kong businesses keep up with the transition that is now underway, and play their part in achieving this critical goal.

In this event, you will learn more about:
Why should businesses set 2°C carbon reduction targets?
How far and how fast do we need to reduce our emissions for a 2°C maximum?
What are the methodologies available for setting long-term targets?

Renewable Energy–How can it thrive in Hong Kong?
With the overarching imperative of the Paris Agreement to reach net zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century, transitioning to an ultra-low carbon electricity market is vital. Renewable energy (RE) development, including solar power, has a significant role to play in achieving this transition.  The Hong Kong Government launched its new Climate Action Plan 2030+ on 20 January, which included a target to reduce the carbon intensity of the economy by 65-70% by 2030 (stated to be equivalent to a 26-36% absolute reduction) and said that it was ready to optimise the introduction of RE in a more systematic manner with the Government taking the lead.  BEC, WWF and Hong Kong Baptist University's Asian Energy Studies Centre bring together government, business and NGOs to facilitate a dialogue, on policy measures and actions that can be introduced in the city to facilitate an energy transition, with a focus on optimisation of renewable energy.
