Energy and Renewables

If you are a company in the environmental technology sector looking to expand overseas, Hong Kong could be the ideal location. As well as being a highly mature market in its own right, Hong Kong’s position as the gateway to Mainland China with easy access to the rest of Asia Pacific translates to a wealth of exciting opportunities. The Hong Kong Government supports green initiatives with tax incentives and public projects, including the incubator schemes provided by Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks.

Energy and Renewables

Hong Kong consumers have a strong awareness of environmental issues and are receptive to new technologies. Opportunities here include:

  • Solar and wind technologies application engineering
  • Low emissions public transport
  • Waste treatment and recycling (almost 50 percent of waste is already recycled)
  • Electric vehicles
  • Low emission building strategies and urban planning
  • Carbon audits and environmental services
  • Air and water quality improvement technologies

Further afield in Asia, there are opportunities for companies that:

  • Consult on emissions reduction and trading
  • Structure deals (legal, auditing)
  • Finance projects
  • Build projects (contractors/engineers)
  • Supply the parts and technologies

Mainland China, with its booming economy and industries, is a particularly strong market for environmental technologies and expertise.
