The Asia region consists of fourteen National Member Committees (NMCs). It is a large and diverse region in terms of its economic stages, culture and language as well as the energy issues it faces.

Currently, a regional study on Best Practices of the GHG Reduction Measures in Asian Region is being carried out by Asian NMCs. The interim report, published in June 2017, is available on request (contact button below), and the final report will be available here in October.

Other issues for the region include technology and innovation, energy efficiency, the energy-water-food nexus, energy markets, centralization/decentralization of energy systems and meeting energy demand.



In addition to the study of GHG reduction measures in Asia, the Council is partnering with China’s Energy Research Institute (ERI) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB)  to conduct a Trilemma provincial deep dive. The pilot phase is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2018.
