Venue: Room TU201, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hung Hom, Kowloon
Date: 29 January 2010 (Friday).
Time: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm (Registration at 6:30 pm)
Participant: 350 persons maximum

Hong Kong is an ideal place for Electric Vehicles (EV) - high fuel prices and short driving distances
make electric cars a viable alternative to conventional gasoline vehicles. EVs are also an integral part
of facilitating a “Greener Hong Kong” by reducing roadside emissions and increasing the overall
efficiency of transport. However, a reliable EV charging network is vital to alleviate "range anxiety"
that many users associate with electric vehicles. CLP Power has recently launched a pilot plan to build
the first EV charging network in Hong Kong. Its emergence will encourage drivers to consider electric
vehicles and hopefully lead to its widespread use.
This technical seminar will provide an opportunity to introduce members the insights into the pilot
plan and the challenges for an Electric Vehicle Charging network both currently and in the future.

Mr. Ron Chung is the Senior Strategic Planner of CLP Power Hong Kong. He has 18 years in the gas
& electricity business, ranging from production operation and management, retail services, marketing
to business strategy & planning. He currently focuses on sustainability in energy efficiency &
conservation, renewable energy, carbon issues and electric vehicles.
