In Hong Kong, we operate a vertically-integrated electricity supply business providing a highly-reliable supply of electricity to 80% of the city’s population. Outside Hong Kong, we invest in the energy sector in Mainland China, India, Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Australia.

Globally, CLP has seen a rise in Governments' desire to intervene more directly in the privately-owned power sector, with strengthened regulatory control and public support for such measures. Much of this intervention relates specifically to carbon and air emissions legislation. For example in Hong Kong, the Government has proposed changing the fuel mix for generation as part of its commitment to set out clear objectives and a roadmap to achieve cleaner air, better fuel mix, and energy conservation and emissions reduction.


Although there are some regulatory trends that pose a risk to CLP business, there are also some regulatory trends which have given CLP the opportunity to develop a green business. These trends have most strongly impacted CLP business in China and India, where governments have developed supportive renewable energy policies over the past 5 to 10 years which enabled renewable projects, especially wind, to compete on equal financial grounds with more traditional coal fired generation.
