How many solar panels can be installed on your building? How much electricity will they generate annually? How much they cost and how much they save? Hong Kong Solar Map helps Hong Kong residents answer these questions and many more!

Hong Kong Solar Map was developed by Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), through a collaboration between Asian Energy Studies Centre, HKBU; Department of Geography, HKBU; Hong Kong Baptist University Library; WWF-HK; and Greenpeace. The map is the first of its kind in the Greater China region.
