Total Energy Consumption

Total energy consumption per capita dropped by 10% in 2020 to 1.7 toe. Per capita electricity consumption is about 5,840 kWh.

Total energy consumption decreased by 8.5% in 2020 reaching 13 Mtoe, previously it had been stable since 2007.

Gas covers 33% of the country's total energy consumption, oil 32%, coal 25%, and electricity 8% (2020). Previously coal had the largest share of total energy consumption (43% in, 2019) and had been increasing since 2000 (from 28%).

Renewable in % Electricity Production

In 2020, Environment Bureau (ENB) presented the details of more than HK$10bn (US$1.3bn) in environmental projects and over HK$3bn (US$387m) in relief measures outlined in the 2020-21 budget, to mitigate climate change, improve air quality, support waste reduction and recycling, as well as enhance environmental protection and provide financial relief sector. Around 20% of this amount (HK$2bn or US$258m) was earmarked for launching the "EV-charging at Home Subsidy Scheme" ("EHSS"), a pilot scheme to subsidise the installation of EV charging-enabling infrastructure in residential buildings.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

GHG emissions dropped by 17% in 2020, reaching 35.4 MtCO2 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while they were previously decreasing by 2.1%/year since 2014. Still, GHG emissions in 2020 stood at 13% above their 1990. Between 1990 and 2014, GHG emissions increased by almost 55%. GHG emissions are mainly composed of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion in Hong Kong, thus their levels are quite alike (35 MtCO2 in 2020), and vary similarly in time. In 2020, CO2 emissions from coal consumption accounted for 37% of total emissions from energy combustion.
