The Asian Development Bank is an international development finance organisation supporting economic and social growth across Asia.
In 2007, the Asian Development Bank and IEA held joint workshops and cooperated on events such as the first Methane to Markets Partnership Conference and Expo in 2007 that took place in China. More recently, in 2017 the IEA and the Asian Development Bank expanded their co-operation in the fields of energy security analysis, data and modelling, and clean energy technology through a Memorandum of Understanding.
The IEA has conducted regular in-depth studies of the energy challenges facing Asia. These include the WEO Special Reports, Development Prospects of the ASEAN Power Sector as well as Regional Energy Efficiency Policy Recommendations for Southeast Asia.
