Electricity access rates across Southeast Asia

Energy demand in Southeast Asia grows at one of the fastest rates in the world. Still, around 65 million people across the ten Association of Southeast Asian Nations countries are without access to electricity. Moreover, people in remote areas have access often via expensive and polluting diesel generators.

However, ever-cheaper renewable technologies are opening new options for cost-effective access. A variety of fuels, technologies and approaches are likely to be required to achieve full electricity access, depending on factors including regional population density, distance from the current grid and local resource availability.
