Talk: Planning Ahead for a Better Fuel Mix -- What are the Options for Hong Kong?

 

Speaker: Mr. Paul Poon, Managing Director of CLP Power Hong Kong

 

Moderator: Mr. P.S. Yeung, HKIC Director and Founder & Managing Director of World Power Investment Ltd.

 

The Environment Bureau has issued a consultation document seeking public opinions on Hong Kong's future fuel mix for electricity generation. The need to review and plan stems from the imminent retirement of some power generating units, as well as Hong Kong's commitment to air pollutant emission reduction targets and carbon intensity reduction targets. Secretary for the Environment KS Wong said "For our city to thrive, we cannot do without safe and reliable electricity provided at an affordable price. Alongside these objectives, we also want a cleaner environment." 

 

In the consultation document, two options were provided for citizens to choose. Deadline for submission is 18 June 2014. 

 

Mr. Paul Poon, Managing Director of CLP Power Hong Kong, will share his views on the proposed options, and explore how CLP can help the community take them forward.

 

Mr. Poon joined CLP Power Hong Kong in 1981. He now holds overall responsibility for the operations of the company's Hong Kong business, which includes a vertically integrated electricity utility serving over 80% of Hong Kong's population. Mr. Poon holds a Bachelor of Science (Engineering) Degree from the University of Hong Kong.
