What's On

Transport accounts for around one-fifth of global carbon emissions. To achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the transport sector is actively exploring alternative fuels as it charts a path towards sustainable mobility.

For many, hydrogen offers one of the most promising solutions. In Hong Kong, the Government has pledged to test hydrogen buses within the next few years while the world's first fleet of hydrogen-powered passenger trains began service in Germany in August. The gas is also gaining serious traction as a clean fuel in the aviation sector with a recent report showing that hydrogen-powered commercial aircraft could enter the market as soon as 2035.

Will hydrogen represent the fuel of the future? What are its prospects and challenges as an alternative green fuel? Join us at a seminar on 13 October when Adam Leishman from Bravo Transport and Jack Lam from Arup will discuss the decarbonization of the transport sector from land to sky through hydrogen. They will be joined by Professor Minhua Shao from HKUST Energy Institute, who will be sharing on the latest developments in building a more durable and cost-effective hydrogen fuel cell.

This is the third in a series of seminars on 'Decarbonizing Hong Kong 2050', which focuses on how the government, businesses and communities are working towards Hong Kong's goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
