  • CLP's electricity supply reliability exceeds 99.999% - among the world's best!
  • Total power-interruption time experienced by our customers is much less than that in other major cities such as New York, Sydney and London.
  • Hong Kong's airport is one of the busiest in the world. Imagine what would happen if there was a power outage!

    Did you know?

  • Our emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and respirable suspended particulates have been reduced by more than 80% since 1990… while electricity demand has surged by a similar magnitude over the same period.

  • Natural gas does not spill or radiate. If an event occurs, causing its release, it simply and safely dissipates into the atmosphere.
  • To generate the same amount of electricity produced with 12g of uranium would require 70m3 of natural gas, or 90kg of oil, or 140kg of coal, or a 40m2 wind farm to run for a whole year.
  • About 85% of the radiation that people are normally exposed to over their lifetime comes from natural sources, including food and drinking water. By contrast, any radiation they might receive from an operating nuclear power station is negligible.

    Did you know?

  • CLP's tariff in Hong Kong is just half that of London.
  • Manila's tariff is also double that of CLP's tariff in Hong Kong.
  • CLP's Hong Kong tariff is one-third that of Berlin.
  • Rome's tariff is almost three times higher than CLP's in Hong Kong.
  • Sydney's tariff is almost three times higher than CLP's in Hong Kong.

Mostly Natural Gas and Nuclear

Additional supplies of natural gas and nuclear energy would need to be secured from various sources.

IMPACTS
  • Price
    The currently high and volatile price of gas could be partly offset by the relatively cheap and stable cost of nuclear energy.
  • Environment
    The use of lower-emission natural gas and zero-emission nuclear energy as fuels can significantly reduce overall emissions and help Hong Kong meet its emissions targets.
  • Reliability
    Both nuclear energy and gas have good reliability records.
  • Public Perception
    Concerns about the perceived safety issues with nuclear power.
