New round of applications under Green Welfare NGOs scheme opens
     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (October 17) announced that the Green Welfare NGOs scheme is open for a new round of applications from today.
     The Government launched the Green Welfare NGOs scheme in 2021 to support welfare non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to conduct energy audits and energy saving projects at their premises. Under the scheme, the EMSD provides one-stop services to welfare NGOs free of charge, such as conducting baseline energy audits, replacing existing air conditioners with more energy efficient variable-speed ones, and replacing existing lighting with light emitting diode (LED) lighting at their premises.
     The new round of applications will be carried out in three batches with opening and closing dates as follows:
First batch: from October 17 to November 15, 2022;
Second batch: from November 16, 2022 to January 16, 2023; and
Third batch: from January 17, 2023, to March 31, 2023.
     Interested welfare NGOs can obtain detailed information on the scheme from the website (www.energysaving.gov.hk/en/competitions/green_welfare_ngos.html). For enquiries, please contact the EMSD at 3528 6351 during office hours or by email (gwngo@emsd.gov.hk).
