Volume of oil product imports to Hong Kong 2009-2019, by type

In 2019, Hong Kong imported around 595 million liters of unleaded petrol, the least among all oil products imported into Hong Kong that year.

Import of energy commodities

   Due to a lack of local oil resources, Hong Kong had to generate most of its energy from external sources, either from imported oil and coal products or as energy produced through imported fuel resources. Most oil products were imported to Hong Kong as aviation gasoline and kerosene; gas oil, diesel oil, naphtha and fuel oil, which altogether accounted for over 76 percent of all energy commodities imported in Hong Kong. Although electricity only accounted for a small share of the imported energy fix, there has been an increase in volume of imported electricity in the last few years.

Renewable energy

  With less than one percent of energy generated from renewable resources, Hong Kong’s progress in applying renewable energy currently lacked behind its counterparts worldwide. Surveys have revealed that the perceived level of renewable energy applications in Hong Kong was much higher than the actual level. The government of Hong Kong has set up a target to increase its share to three to four percent before 2030, which was regarded as insufficient by most Hong Kong residents.
