CLP electricity sales in Hong Kong up 2.6% YoY in Q1

The commercial sector saw significant demand due to the lifting of pandemic restrictions.

CLP Holdings reported a 2.6% year-on-year (YoY) increase in electricity sales in the first quarter of 2023 to 7,106 gigawatt-hours (GWh) due to the economic rebound as COVID-19 restrictions were removed.

In a statement, CLP said the lifting of restrictions boosted activity in the commercial sector which saw stronger demand from restaurants. The sector accounted for the largest chunk of the total sales at 40%, increasing by 6.7% YoY to 2,812 GWh.
