North China Electric Power University (Chinese: 华北电力大学; pinyin: Huáběi diànlì dàxué) is a university based in Beijing, People's Republic of China under the national Ministry of Education that specializes in polytechnic disciplines.
The university was established as the Beijing Institute of Electric Power in 1958. It was later renamed the North China Institute of Electric Power when its location was moved to Baoding, Hebei province in 1970. When the school merged with the Beijing Power Engineering and Electronics Institute in 1995, it was given its present name. In 2006, the university relocated its main campus from Baoding, Hebei province back to Beijing. It still has the major campus in Baoding.
A close neighbor of Badaling highway, adjoining Olympic Green on the east and Zhongguancun high technology zone and Shangdi Information Industry base on the west, North China Electric Power University is located in Deshengmenwaizhuxinzhuang, Beijing. It is found in beautiful surroundings and fresh air.
