[24 February 2020] Renewable Energy Webinar: How to Build and Manage a Solar System?

We are pleased be a supporting organization of “Renewable Energy (RE) Webinar: How to Build and Manage a Solar System?” organized by CarbonCare InnoLab on 24 February 2020.

Solar Energy is the global energy trend right now, and it helps us to combat climate change. Technology development leads to decreasing cost of installing solar power systems, and the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) scheme of the two power companies in Hong Kong brings money return to solar system owners. For the environment, for the money return, it is a worthy investment.

This RE Webinars is an international network of cross-webinars with renewable energy associations overseas. These digital seminars for the general public will focus on sharing knowledge about solar energy-related topics of high relevance in science, technology development, marketing and industrial implementation, social issues, training and education. Ir Chi Cheung (CC) Ngan, former Senior Manager- Renewable Energy of CLP Group was invited as RE Webinars speaker to share with us how to build and manage a solar power system. Content includes advice on sourcing and design, energy production estimation,  operation and investment, quality check, etc.  For details of the programme, please visit programme websit at https://ccinnolab.org/solarcare/.

Background

Jockey Club SolarCare Programme is funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, with a view to promote the use of solar energy in Hong Kong as well as to develop a community service platform of renewable energy.

The mission of the programme is to accelerate the application of solar energy within the local community to increase the use of solar energy and reduce carbon emissions in Hong Kong. At the same time, this programme will serve to connect green groups, NGOs, government departments, power companies, renewable energy experts and the Hong Kong public at large. It is hoped that this can help Hong Kong catch up with the global level of solar energy development and together we can build a Zero Carbon Hong Kong.

In the first phase of this programme, it will partner with ten NGOs to install solar panels and have them connected to the FiT Scheme of the two power companies. A series of community education activities focusing on solar energy in Hong Kong will also be implemented.
