CLP has been actively developing renewable energy power projects in China and India for more than a decade. Many of our projects have the attributes necessary to qualify as carbon credit generators, as either compliance based Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) issued under the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), or as voluntary based Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) in accordance with the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS).
CLP started construction on its first wind farm in Khandke, Maharashtra in 2006. Ten years later, CLP has over 1,000 MW of committed wind projects and is one of the biggest renewable energy producers and among the largest foreign investors in the Indian electricity sector.
CLP has been in Mainland China’s power industry since 1979. We are one of the largest external independent power producers with a focus on clean and low-carbon energy including renewables.
CLP was founded in Hong Kong in 1901, at a time when electricity was still a novelty worldwide. Today we power millions of homes and businesses across the Asia Pacific regions. In Hong Kong, we operate a vertically-integrated electricity supply business providing a highly-reliable supply of electricity to 80% of the city’s population. Outside Hong Kong, we invest in the energy sector in Mainland China, India, Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Australia. Our business includes power generation, transmission and distribution, and electricity and gas retail activities. Our goal is to meet Asia-Pacific's energy challenge in a sustainable manner from one generation to the next.
