Getting Real: Hong Kong’s Paradigm Shift to a Hydrogen Economy

Day 1 - 5th Oct | 12:10 - 13:00

Location: Sustainable Partnership Theatre

Decarbonisation

Overview

Power generation and transportation are among the biggest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions in Hong Kong. Decarbonisation of these sectors is therefore a priority, in order for the city to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. As hydrogen emerges to fulfil its longstanding potential as a clean energy source, what are the opportunities and challenges of its adoption in Hong Kong?

Learnings

  • How can Hong Kong best tap into hydrogen’s potential for a clean, secure and affordable energy future?
  • What are the partnerships, technological, regulatory and investment support required for viability and scaling up?
  • What are the barriers to developing a hydrogen economy in Hong Kong, and how best to overcome them?

Post Event Actions

  • Gain insights on the latest technological, regulatory and investment trends for developing a hydrogen economy.
  • Understand the potential of hydrogen for a net-zero economy by 2050, including how hydrogen compares with other fuels for decarbonisation by industry.
  • Rethink how your company and industry could collaborate and support the deployment of hydrogen in Hong Kong.
