Business Model & Strategy

CLP’s core business is to provide electricity to customers safely and reliably, at a competitive price and with the least environmental impact. To do this, we act in different roles across the electricity value chain, depending on local constraints and characteristics that vary in the markets in which we operate.

Investment Strategy
    The electricity business requires a long-term view when it comes to investment. Given the profound changes in the regulatory and economic environment for our industry in recent years, we updated our investment strategy which was approved by the Board in 2014. The updated investment strategy, succinctly summarised as "Focus ‧ Delivery ‧ Growth", recognises the challenges in the current business climate and identifies future opportunities to position CLP Group in markets where it has scale, capability and competitive advantages. This will guide CLP in the coming decade.
