Black Point Power Station D1
HONG KONG

 

For 120 years, CLP has grown hand-in-hand with our home market of Hong Kong. We continue to deliver safe, reliable, environmentally-friendly and affordable energy services to 2.73 million customer accounts in Kowloon, the New Territories and outlying islands. 

 

We operate a vertically-integrated electricity supply business in Hong Kong – which includes generation, transmission and distribution, and retail – and serve 80 percent of the territory's population. Through our partnership with China Southern Power Grid International (HK) Co., Limited in Castle Peak Power Company Limited (CAPCO), we operate the Castle Peak Power Station, Black Point Power Station, Penny’s Bay Power Station and the landfill gas power generation project (WE Station) at the West New Territories Landfill site. The gross capacity (operation / under construction) totals 8,268MW (as at 30 June 2022). We also import power from Guangdong Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station. In addition, we manage over 16,600 kilometres of transmission and distribution lines and over 15,500 substations.

CLP is regulated by the Scheme of Control Agreement in Hong Kong, which monitors our performance and stipulates our levels of investment and return. The scheme has served Hong Kong well and is a key factor behind the world-class level of reliability, reasonable cost and environmental performance of our electricity supply. We share the community’s concerns about environment, and as such we were early adopters of cleaner fuels. CLP has reduced air emissions by more than 90% from the early 1990s, despite a nearly 90% rise in electricity demand in the same period.

We will continue to responsibly manage the environmental impact of our projects and operations, and maintain full compliance with all applicable regulations and standards.

Volunteering efforts by CLP staff remains one of our key platforms to engage with local communities, mainly through youth education and environmental awareness activities.
