  • Organization Profile
  • Having commenced operations since 1890, The Hongkong Electric Company, Limited (HK Electric) is one of the longest-established utility companies in the world. The Company’s vision is to excel in the power business in Hong Kong. Its operations cover power generation, transmission and distribution, supply and customer service under a Scheme of Control Agreement with the HKSAR Government, providing a safe, reliable, clean and affordable electricity supply to about 580,000 commercial and residential customers on Hong Kong Island and Lamma Island.

    HK Electric has a heritage of powering Hong Kong for more than 130 years and is proud of its world-class supply reliability of more than 99.999% maintained since 1997. The Company is committed to continuing its long tradition of community engagement and support for the underprivileged, and to remaining a positive and responsible corporate citizen of Hong Kong.


  • Environment and Sustainability Highlights
  • HK Electric’s operations are guided by a caring and socially responsible culture that encompasses the environment, customers, employees and the community it serves. Throughout the years, the Company continues to engage its stakeholders and integrate corporate social responsibility considerations in all aspects of its business.

    As a major public utility in Hong Kong, HK Electric recognises its social responsibility to protect the environment and combat climate change. On top of commissioning Hong Kong’s first commercial-scale wind turbine in 2006 and installing one of the city’s largest solar power systems in 2010, the Company is decarbonising its business by progressively switching from coal-fired to gas-fired power generation.

    On the demand side, HK Electric has introduced a suite of funding and service schemes, collectively known as Smart Power Services, to promote energy efficiency and conservation, renewable energy and low-carbon living in the community. To encourage the smart use of power among its customers while supporting Hong Kong’s development into a smarter and cleaner city, HK Electric is deploying smart meters in phases across its network.

    Caring for the community is a key corporate mission of HK Electric.  The Company devotes its resources and technical expertise to helping those in need, with special focuses on elderly care and green education.  The Company’s strategy is to work closely with green groups, NGOs, the education sector and the Government to address social needs.
