The Asia and the Pacific Renewable Energy Status Report is produced in cooperation with the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The report was launched on 22 October 2019 as a key input to the 8th International Renewable Energy Conference Seoul 2019 (Seoul 2019).
This inaugural Asia and the Pacific Renewable Energy Status Report provides a comprehensive overview of renewable energy developments in the world’s largest and fastest growing region. The report covered 18 selected countries across five sub-regions:
- Northeast Asia (China, Japan, Mongolia, the Republic of Korea);
- Central Asia (Georgia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan);
- South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka);
- Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Viet Nam) and
- The Pacific (Fiji, Tonga).
The report builds on the success and lessons learned in producing the Renewables Global Status Report and other REN21 regional status reports, to inform on the current status of renewable energy in the region, focusing on those countries where data is currently available.
