The Electrical & Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) and Singapore Energy Market Authority (EMA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) today to strengthen co-operation between Hong Kong and Singapore in energy-related matters.
It is the first MoU signed between the two authorities for enhancing a collaborative relationship towards greater energy safety and resilience through innovation and co-operation.
Under the pact, both sides will work together to promote co-operation and share best practices in the two key areas of electricity and gas systems and markets, as well as renewable energy, energy efficiency and conservation, district cooling and low carbon technologies.
Both sides will also promote co-operation at multilateral forums such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation.
