“Understanding Renewable Energy” Webinar Series (1): Energy Sources and Climate Change
Date: 18 June 2021
Time: 2pm - 3pm

Burning fossil fuels would cause emission of greenhouse gas and accelerate climate change. Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy lies at the heart of all climate mitigation action, as well as the global trend. As renewable technology continues to improve and the cost of renewable energy generation gradually declines, the total global electricity generating capacity is rising rapidly.
Nearly 70% of Hong Kong's carbon emissions come from electricity generation. To achieve the “Carbon Neutral by 2050” Target announced by the Government, we have to rapidly increase the proportion of renewable energy. The “Feed-in Tariff” policy encourage the use of solar and wind power, and we expect more renewable energy policies to be launched.
In order to raise public awareness on renewable energy, especially on solar energy which is suitable for large-scale application in Hong Kong, CarbonCare InnoLab organises “Understanding Renewable Energy” Webinar Series*, sharing knowledge of renewable energy, climate change and solar photovoltaic system.
In the “Energy Resources and Climate Change“ Webinar, you are going to learn the development of energy sources, the relationship between fossil fuels and climate change, causes and impacts of climate change, international climate actions and overview of Hong Kong’s renewable energy sector. Whether you are interested in climate change and renewable energy, or interested in green career path or the renewable energy industry, you are welcome to join.
