Dubbed the “Father of Asian Electric Vehicles”, Professor C. C. Chan, Distinguished Chair Professor and Director of the Research Centre for Electric Vehicles (RCEV) at PolyU, shares in media interviews his key insights into developing new energy vehicles in Hong Kong. Eyeing on the city’s unique advantages and potential, Professor Chan envisions a thriving, eco-friendly transportation landscape that positions Hong Kong as an international innovation and technology hub.


As Hong Kong strives to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the Government has set its sights on popularising electric vehicles. Professor Chan emphasises the importance of leveraging Hong Kong’s status as an international city and collaborating with Shenzhen and other Greater Bay Area cities to build a robust translational ecosystem. This strategic partnership will not only attract research talents but also foster technology commercialisation, driving the development of new energy vehicles in Hong Kong and the Nation.


Professor Chan also highlights the need for low carbonisation and electrification, as well as the potential of intelligence and hydrogen energy, to facilitate a green transition.


Under Professor Chan’s leadership, the RCEV is dedicated to building a cutting-edge research platform to address energy and technical challenges presented by modern electric vehicles, while journeying toward a more sustainable future.
