Scheme of Control

The Scheme of Control Agreement ("SCA") provides a framework for the Government to monitor HK Electric's financial affairs and operating performance. The current SCA is effective for a term of 10 years from 1 January 2009 and will expire on 31 December 2018. Under the current SCA, HK Electric is entitled to a 9.99% permitted rate of return on average net fixed assets other than for renewable energy fixed assets for which the permitted rate of return is 11%.

In April 2017, HK Electric entered into a new SCA with the Government, effective for 15 years from 1 January 2019 until 31 December 2033. HK Electric is entitled to a permitted rate of return of 8% on average net fixed assets under the new SCA. The agreement provides long-term certainty to HK Electric in gradual replacement of its coal-fired units by gas-fired units. With a strong emphasis on energy efficiency, customer services, promotion of renewable energy and operational transparency, the new SCA effectively balances the interests of various stakeholders.
