HK Electric Investments is the first fixed single investment trust listed in Hong Kong with a focus on the power industry. Our principal operating subsidiary, The Hongkong Electric Company, Limited (HK Electric), commenced operations in 1890 and is one of the longest-established utility companies in the world.
Over our long history, we have consistently supported Hong Kong's economic journey by offering safe, reliable and affordable electricity while minimising the impact of our operations on the environment as we strive to deliver sustainable growth in long-term value to our investors.
HK Electric Investments believes that open and on-going communication with our stakeholders is central to our operation and development. We engage different stakeholders through a variety of channels and stakeholder suggestions and feedback are highly valued in our decision making process as we strive for continuous improvements.
Underpinned by its core value of "Pursuit of Excellence", HK Electric is committed to delivering excellent services and supply reliability to our customers. We have been providing a world-class supply reliability of over 99.999% since 1997 and all our service standards are achieved or even surpassed every year.
As modern families aspire to an eco-friendly lifestyle, HK Electric promises its customers a green and comfortable way of life made possible by the use of electric appliances.
HK Electric is one of the longest-established power companies in the world. The Company has a world-class record of providing a highly reliable electricity supply to Hong Kong and Lamma islands at a reasonable and affordable price.
HK Electric has been the power behind Hong Kong for more than 120 years, having established a long and fruitful partnership with the community. While our prime mission is to provide a world-class electricity supply, we focus not only on the results, but also on the way we deliver them.
HK Electric aspires to be an employer of choice. We have policies and systems in place to attract talents and through continuous training and development, nurture them for a fulfilling career. We offer competitive remuneration, an ideal workplace and comprehensive wellness programmes for our employees while maintaining regular and open dialogues with them.
Supported by the Smart Power Education Fund, HK Electric's Smart Power Campaign promotes energy efficiency and low-carbon lifestyle among the public, in particular the younger generations through a wide array of activities, attracting close to 700,000 students and citizens over the years.
In 2018, Smart Power Campaign is encouraging all to become green KOLs (Key Opinion Leaders), who inspire others to a green lifestyle by sharing their low carbon initiatives.
The programme offers a variety of Other Learning Experiences (OLE) such as school talks, training classes on green news reporting, eco-heritage tours, visits to Lamma Winds, Lamma Power Station and Smart Power Centre, etc. to member schools. Awards are given to schools with outstanding performances in green practices and promotion.
The competition encourages secondary school students to realise their green energy dreams. Maximum funding of $50,000 and technical advice are provided to shortlisted teams wishing to implement their STEAM projects in promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency on campus and in the community.
Secondary schools are encouraged to nominate students to become our ambassadors. Different life planning experience and green knowledge are given to them. Outstanding ambassadors may also have the opportunity to “job shadow” HK Electric's environmental engineers.
