12:30 – 2:15pm Lunch included Joint Chamber Luncheon – Hosted by The British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong The safe and reliable supply of electricity at a reasonable cost that we enjoy today continues to play a crucial role in powering Hong Kong's economic growth and maintaining its competitiveness. Looking ahead, as we continue to work towards making a more environmentally friendly and sustainable city, the Hong Kong Government has recently launched a public consultation on the fuel mix for electricity generation for the next decade.
Given energy supply and electricity infrastructure are long-term in nature, the choice for the right fuel mix is an important decision for Hong Kong. Decisions we make today have far-reaching consequences and implications to the society for decades and beyond.
Energy security, supply reliability, environmental impact and cost implications are all key parameters that should be taken into careful consideration in deciding Hong Kong's future fuel mix.
Richard Lancaster, Chief Executive Officer of CLP Holdings, will be invited to share his insights into this decision-making. CLP has been providing electricity to Hong Kong for the past 113 years, and is currently one of the largest investor-owned power businesses in Asia Pacific. Under Mr Lancaster's leadership, the CLP Group is managing a diverse portfolio of electricity generating assets encompassing coal, gas, nuclear, wind, solar and hydroelectric sources. Mr Lancaster's experience in the energy business will provoke thoughts for an insightful discussion on the direction of the fuel mix for the future of Hong Kong.
