Company background

Huaneng Power International is a major Chinese state-owned electric power company. It is a unit of state giant China Huaneng Group and one of the country's five biggest electric utilities, which include China Datong and China Guodian. China Huaneng is the largest of the five in terms of business scale.

Huaneng Power is active nationwide, engaging in developing, constructing and managing power-generation facilities. It also has business operations in the areas of finance, coal mining, transport and new energy.

China Huaneng, established in 1985, founded Huaneng Power as its core subsidiary in 1994.

Huaneng Power has a strong business base protected by the government's market entry regulations. Because the big five power players dominate the domestic market for electricity, Huaneng Power enjoys stable earnings.

Huaneng Power recently purchased a power producer in Singapore as part of its aggressive overseas expansion push.

Under the strong influence of former Chinese Premier Li Peng and his family, Huaneng Power is known to be at the center of the "electric power clique." It has made considerable use of the extensive human networks it has established in political and business circles.

The company is drawing keen attention as a possible target of Chinese President Xi Jinping's anti-corruption campaign.
