Abstract: In view of the electricity de-regulation implemented in many Western countries in recent years, it is obvious that electricity consumers can gain benefit through competition in the open electricity market. With more choices of different tariff schemes offered by different power generation companies, consumers can select a tariff scheme to their greatest benefit and achieve cost saving. Through competition, power generation companies and power network operators would try to optimize their production and operation cost as to keep their market share. Before the introduction of open electricity market, there are many technical and political issues to be settled. Some of them include the set up of a regulating mechanism and monitoring organization, electricity purchasing, load management, metering system and data collection, pool price, access to network, agreement between different power generation companies and distribution network operators as well as many other related issues. A review on the present scheme of control of the power companies and tariff system in Hong Kong is conducted at first in this paper. An electricity de-regulatory model dedicated for Hong Kong would then be developed. The implementation steps and time frame would be elaborated. The implication to the existing power distribution system and changes to the present tariff scheme would be investigated.The foreseeable technical and political issues would be examined one by one. The social benefit and the impact to the existing power generation companies would also be studied. The work approach is to firstly collect relevant materials and information on the latest development on the electricity de-regulation and the restructured model in the world. The source of information is mainly come from the engineering institution symposium papers, journals, newspapers and wed sites. Then a preliminary electricity de-regulation model is devised with respect to Hong Kong situation. This model would then be examined from different aspects such as feasibility, merit, drawback and implication to the existing power companies, public and the Government. Subsequently, the implementation steps and the time frame would be established and then reviewed.
