21 June 2010
What are the best approaches for Southeast Asian countries to exploit their large renewable energy potentials?
Focusing on Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, a new IEA report investigates the potentials and barriers for scaling up market penetration of renewable energy technologies in the countries’ electricity, heating and transport sectors.
In addition to analysing the implications of effective policies on renewable energy market growth, the report examines how to overcome economic and non-economic barriers that slow investment in renewable energy, and offers policy recommendations to encourage effective and efficient exploitation of renewable energy in Southeast Asia.
