SEN visits smart city energy laboratory and waste-to-energy facility in Copenhagen
******************************************************************************
     The Secretary for the Environment, Mr Wong Kam-sing, yesterday (October 12, Copenhagen time) continued his visit in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he toured a local smart city energy laboratory and a state-of-the-art waste-to-energy facility.

     In the morning, he called at EnergyLab Nordhavn together with delegates of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group World Mayors Summit 2019. As a smart city energy laboratory for Copenhagen, EnergyLab Nordhavn develops and demonstrates future energy solutions, with the aim of illustrating how electricity and heating, building management and transport can be integrated into the energy system.

     Mr Wong paid a visit to a major waste-to-energy facility, Amager Bakke, in the afternoon. The new facility opened in 2017 and turns municipal solid waste into energy in a highly efficient way.

     Mr Wong concluded his duty visit afterwards and will return to Hong Kong today (October 13) afternoon.
