Priority Themes

Innovative technologies play a critical role in our quest for carbon neutrality before 2050.  In 2022, electricity generation was Hong Kong's largest source of carbon emissions (63%), followed by transport (19%) and waste (8%).  Therefore, our decarbonisation efforts would focus on these three key areas.  We welcome and encourage R&D institutes and local companies to apply for the GTF to develop low-carbon technologies with high application and commercialisation potential that cater for the specific needs of Hong Kong's environment and market, the technologies to be developed should be specific to Hong Kong's circumstances and challenges and can demonstrate clear prospect for commercialisation/ application in local context.  Projects that can support Government’s policy objectives in the areas of Net-zero Electricity Generation, Energy Saving and Green Buildings, Green Transport and Waste Reduction will be given priority.
