Nuclear Power is Not an Option

With increasing demand for electricity, nuclear power could satisfy the demand for electricity in Hong Kong. However, the HK Electric does not see this as an option at the moment. (very strong beginning!)

“Nuclear power is generally safe,” said Esme Lau Mei-yee, Public Affairs Manager of Power Assets Holdings Ltd. “But public concern is also an important issue.”

She explained that from the engineering point of view, using nuclear to generate electricity is safe. However, after the Japan nuclear crisis that happened in March 2011, people are doubtful about the safety of nuclear power.

Thus, the HK Electric is not planning for nuclear power development in the coming future. “But we will not close the door to discussion about nuclear power either,” she added.

Meanwhile, using natural gas for electricity generation is the HK Electric's latest focus. “We are developing (a low carbon Hong Kong?)(is this a project, if so what does it entail? lowering carbon emissions?) and have increased gas-fired generation to 33% of total electricity output,” said Lau. “Solar power is another focus as well.”

HK Electric sponsored $1 million to fund the installation of micro-photovoltaic panels on about five hundred fishing vessels and mariculture rafts, thus proving their commitment to using green energy sources.

It is expected that fishermen can thus reduce diesel oil consumption by over nine thousand liters, as well as reduce over 20 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
