Institution(s): Hong Kong Institute of Economics and Business Strategy, Charles River Associates, Sponsored by CLP Power Hong Kong Limited

Time: 12:00 am - 08:00 am
Venue: Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
The power industry has always played an important role in supporting the infrastructure of Hong Kong's dynamic economy. The power industry historically has been regulated via contracts between the HKSAR and the power companies; these contracts are known collectively as the Scheme of Control Agreements (SOC). The SOC's are due to expire in 2008. The Government is currently reviewing the post-2008 electricity regulatory regime for Hong Kong.
Given the importance of the power industry to Hong Kong's economy, it is important for policymakers and industry participants to understand the factors that will influence future regulatory approaches for the power industry.
In order to provide the broadest possible perspective on power industry regulation, HIEBS and CRA have assembled an impressive panel of speakers from around the world who will talk about alternative approaches to power industry regulation in various national settings. Collectively, the speakers have worked on five continents and have been actively involved in electricity market reform efforts throughout the world. This conference will provide an excellent opportunity for participants to learn about experiences and trends in other countries with regard to electricity regulation, and to discuss their implications for the Hong Kong power industry.
