As commercial, industrial, domestic and other forms of electricity consumption continue to grow, decarbonisation of the energy sector remains of highest priority in order for the city to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.  What opportunities exist for Hong Kong to diversify its energy mix to include more clean energy sources, and fund and procure local renewable energy technologies?
