Hong Kong and Scotland: Low carbon opportunities
Collaborating with Scottish partners can boost the low carbon economy in Hong Kong.
Scotland has built a global reputation for excellence in low carbon technology and our expertise is in great demand.
From innovation in marine energy and offshore wind to transferable skills built up in decades of experience in oil and gas, Scotland is committed to adopting low carbon technology.
Existing low carbon links between Scotland and Hong Kong mean there is a huge opportunity for collaborative working.
The Scottish Hong Kong Centre for Carbon Innovation (SHKCCI) was officially opened in June 2015.
The centre is a low carbon hub offering support and incubation space for new low carbon ideas, helping to accelerate partnerships between Scotland and Hong Kong.
SHKCCI is led by the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI), part of the University of Edinburgh with partners including Edinburgh Napier University, BRE Scotland and Scottish Development International (SDI).
Opportunities for working together in low carbon
Located in the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, SHKCCI builds on a memorandum of understanding signed between Scotland and Hong Kong in 2013.
The centre allows Scottish and Hong Kong organisations the chance to explore collaborative working in a number of areas, including:
- Biofuels and bioenergy
- Clean transport initiatives
- Low carbon finance, education, policy and market structure
- Smart sustainable cities and islands
- Waste management
- Low carbon sustainable building construction
- Renewable energy
- Air quality
The centre offers the perfect base for the sharing of ideas and solutions and the building of partnerships based on the leading low carbon policies and practices already demonstrated in Scotland.
