Electric Vehicle Intelligent Charging Technology Subverts Car Park Profit Models

With the increasing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs), drivers in Hong Kong now demand higher-quality and more abundant EV charging facilities in parking lots than ever before. As a result, many large shopping malls are proactively installing additional charging stations in their parking lots, including chargers for tourist buses, to attract more tourists and cater to the growing number of EV owners.

Eco-Block Reduces Waste, Curbs Carbon Emissions and Turns Waste into Resources

About 180 tonnes of glass waste are disposed of in landfills every day in Hong Kong, accounting for 1.7% of municipal solid waste. The glass waste recycling rate is less than 20% here, lower than that in other East Asian territories such as Korea and Taiwan, and lagging far behind Mainland China where the recovery rate exceeds 50%. The problem is that it costs nothing to dispose of glass as Hong Kong has yet to implement its municipal solid waste charging scheme and there is a lack of a major glass recycling business.

The Pioneer of Solar Energy Application – Building Integrated Photovoltaics

In Hong Kong, buildings account for over 90% of electricity usage, creating over 60% of the city's carbon emissions. One of the critical measures to achieve the carbon neutrality target is to reduce coal-fired and natural gas-fired electricity generation, while increasing the proportion of electricity production from renewable energy. As a pioneer in renewable energy research, PolyU spares no effort in developing relevant technologies with applications and testing on the campus. A good example is the installation of solar photovoltaic systems at the Lee Shau Kee Building (Y-Block).
