Why the time is right for a greentech partnership between sweden and hk (31 may 2013)

  1. 1. Why the time is right for aGreentech Partnership betweenSweden and Hong KongMr. Nicholas BrookeChairmanHong Kong Science andTechnology Parks CorporationMay 2013
  2. 2. A glance at the world we live in …By 2050, the global population isexpected to grow from 7 billion in2011 to 9.3 billion; 70% of theworld’s population will live in citiesGlobal energy demand will grow bymore than 1/3 by 2035, with China,India and the Middle East accountingfor 60% of the increaseRapid populationgrowth andurbanisation arebringing inunprecedenteddemand forenergyinnovation andconsumption,e.g. renewableenergy, energymanagement,smart cityplanning, etc.Growth for the three “benchmark green technologies’”-- wind, solar photovoltaic and biofuels will reachUS$386 billion by 2021Global market forgreen technologiesis set to grow toUS$396 billion overthe next decade
  3. 3. China’s Ambition in Green Technology“Propelled by China’s economic expansion and ambitiouspolicies, greentech markets in China have grown swiftly,showing no signs of slowing.”- The China Greentech Report 2011“We can no longer sacrifice the environment for the sakeof rapid development and rash construction.”- Premier Wen JiaBao“To resolve this problem [of developing theeconomy and protecting the environment] weagain have to rely on technology.”- Zhao Shengxian, Minister of Environmental ProtectionSource: The China Greentech Report 2011
  4. 4. Green Opportunities in ChinaLeads the world in renewableenergy investment with spendingof US$52 billion (almost 1/5 ofglobal total)By 2020, 15% of primary energyfrom non-fossil fuelsBring 2005 levels of carbonintensity down 40-45% by 2020Eco-city movement calls forrefurbishment of 50% ofresidential buildings
  5. 5. Improve Building Energy SavingAll new buildings are mandated to achieve65% energy savings compared to theexisting building stockEnergy and Environmental TaxesNew environmental tax plan which is likelyto be levied on CO2 emissions anddischarges of polluted water, has beensubmitted to the State Council for reviewMore Mandatory Green Targets6 new mandatory green tech targetsare added to the existing plan, e.g.percentage of non-fossil fuel from primaryenergy consumptionPolicies for Innovation Stepped UpStrategic Emerging Industries whichinclude new energy vehicles, energyefficiency and new energy (solar,wind and biomass) are identified tohelp advance economic development.Source: The China Greentech Report 2011The 12th Five Year Plan (2011-2016) gives strongemphasis on energy and environment developmentGreen Opportunities in China
  6. 6. Green Opportunities in HKOne of the cities with lowestcarbon footprint in publictransportation in the worldGovernment’s lead andsupport in Building EnergyManagementCompact city making it theperfect platform to test outtechnologies for Smart City/Digital City/Green City
  7. 7. HKSAR GovernmentDriving Green Development10-year Blueprint for Sustainable Use of Resources in Hong KongPublished by the HKSAR Government in May 2013Outlined the action plan to reduce per capita waste disposal level of municipal solid waste by 40% in 10 yearsSet a carbon intensity reduction target of 50% - 60% by 2020 as compared with 2005 levelSet aside US$1.3 billion (HK$10 billion) as subsidies to progressively phase out heavilypolluting pre-Euro IV diesel commercial vehiclesDedicated efforts to promote electric vehicles, such as a pilot funding scheme to subsidise thetesting of electric taxis, coaches and goods vehiclesEarmarked US$64 million (HK$500 million) for waste electrical and electronic equipmentprocessing facilitiesProposed a US$640 million (HK$5 billion) funding to provide support for green projects initiatedby the community to promote cultural change
  8. 8. Green Opportunities in Hong KongWaste ManagementHong Kong generates 6.4 million tons of waste every year andabout 50% solid wastes ends up at landfills.Government plans to spend at least HK$31 billion on waste-handling infrastructure in the next seven year.Government expects that by 2022, waste recycling, modernincineration and landfill disposal in Hong Kong will account for55%, 23% and 22% of waste management respectively.Technologies for waste management, separation, collection andincinerationSludge and organic waste treatment facilitiesLandfill gas and bio gas utilization

  21. 21. Green Opportunities in Hong KongGreen BuildingsBuildings account for 89 per cent of electricity consumption in Hong Kongand make a sizable contribution to GHG.Government plan to reduce carbon emissions of between 19% to 33% by2020.New energy efficient buildings (and other clean technologies) in majorgovernment investment programs. Government is doubling investments innew infrastructure and property projects to HK$70 billion per yearUpgrading technologies for existing buildings, including cooling/heating,ventilation, insulation, lighting etc.New technologies for optimizing energy and electricity usage in buildingsRevamping the fuel-mix for electricity generation
  22. 22. Green Opportunities in Hong KongAir QualityAir pollution causes by motor vehicles, emissions from shipping andharbour related activities , and industry across the border in southernChina.Government has allocated HK$10 billion to broadly achieve new airquality objectives by 2020.The Government aims to introduce mandatory retirement of 88,000 olddiesel commercial vehicles, using HK$10 billion to pay the owners 30% oftheir value, forcing new vehicles to comply with Euro V emissionstandards.About 3,000 buses need to be replaced before 2017.
