Programme Highlight

The Government released the “Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong” in December 2017, with the vision to “embrace innovation and technology (“I&T”) to build a world-famed smart Hong Kong characterised by a strong economy and high quality of living”. The Blueprint lists out six major areas, namely “Smart Mobility”, “Smart Living”, “Smart Environment”, “Smart People”, “Smart Government” and “Smart Economy”, with a view to developing Hong Kong into a smart city by leveraging I&T.

 

In addition, the Sustainable Lantau Blueprint promulgated by the Government in June 2017 aims to develop Lantau into a smart and low-carbon community.

 

Introduction of a number of smart and green elements, including the construction of a comprehensive cycle track network, Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS), eco-shorelines, District Cooling System (DCS), e-vehicle charging facilities, smart lampposts and Water Intelligent Networks (WIN) etc. was proposed in the Tung Chung New Town Extension (TCNTE) project. 

 

This technical seminar will present the highlights of these proposals which aim at developing the TCNTE area into a smart, green and low-carbon community, and creating a more liveable environment for the public in support of the three areas under the “Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong”, namely “Smart Mobility”, “Smart Environment” and “Smart Living”.
