CLP’s first entry into the China market dates back to 1979, when the Group provided electricity to Guangdong to meet the developing needs of the local economy. In 1985, we invested in the first commercial nuclear power plant in Mainland China, the Guangdong Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station, and have since been participating in its operations.
CLP has always been firmly committed to Mainland China’s growing energy sector, where we have performed the roles of developer, investor, project manager and operator. To date, we are the largest external independent power producer in Mainland China, with investments in 15 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities. Our assets are distributed across North China (Beijing, Shandong, Hebei, Tianjin and Inner Mongolia), East China (Jiangsu and Shanghai), South China (Guangdong and Guangxi), Northeast China (Jilin and Liaoning), Southwest China (Guizhou, Yunnan and Sichuan), and Northwest China (Gansu). We have over 50 power generation assets in China, of which 19 are wholly-owned and three are majority-owned. Our capital investment amounts to approximately HK$ 60 billion.
