Energy Trends in Developing Asia: Priorities for a Low-Carbon Future
This report examines data and trends related to primary energy supply, final energy demand, electricity generation and demand, greenhouse gas emissions, clean energy investments and associated policies and targets. The report focuses on Asia’s six largest developing countries in terms of energy consumption: China, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Also included in the regional analysis is six member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The objective of this report is to provide a thorough review of energy trends in developing Asia in order to understand: (1) the drivers of energy demand; (2) the impacts of increased energy demand on energy security and greenhouse gas emissions; and (3) the prospects for the scale-up of clean energy in developing Asia economies.
The report concludes that developing Asian economies currently use much less energy per capita than the U.S. or their industrialized Asia neighbors. However as incomes rise in developing Asian economies, energy demands will also rise and developing Asia will play an ever-larger role in global energy demand and resulting greenhouse gas emissions.
