Hong Kong remains heavily dependent on thermal energy, with coal accounting for approximately 65.5 % of the city-state's energy production as of 201 4 . Although the government is actively researching renewable energy solutions to curb this dependency, it is most likely Hong Kong will become increasingly reliant on mainland China and imported natural gas over the medium term.

BMI forecasts Hong Kong's real GDP growth will average 3.6% a year between 2015-2024, with an increase of 2.7% estimated for 2015. BMI is forecasting an average annual increase in total electricity consumption of 1.8% to 46.12TWh between 2015-2019. Thermal generation, comprising coal, gas and oil, is expected to grow by an average of 2.2% per annum over the same period, and average 2.4% between 2019-2024. Thermal power generation will continue to account for all of domestic production, with imports from nuclear and pumped storage capacity in China .

Apart from domestic thermal energy production, Hong Kong is making limited progress in the field of renewable energy, with China Light & Power (CLP) and Hong Kong Electric Co. (HEC) drawing up plans for offshore wind farms. In addition, Hong Kong imports electricity generated by the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station (DBNPS) in mainland China - Hong Kong has no plans to build its own nuclear facilities - and CLP has struck a deal with Chinese firms over long-term plans to import natural gas.
