Asia Pacific

Energy system of Asia Pacific

Home to more than half of the world’s population, the Asia-Pacific region will play a pivotal role in shaping our global energy future.

Energy trends in the China – the world’s largest energy producer and consumer – help set the trajectory for the global energy transition. While China’s demand for fossil fuels continues to grow, it is also the world’s leading clean energy powerhouse, adding renewable capacity at an unrivalled pace and dominating many clean energy supply chains.

India, meanwhile, is poised to see the largest energy demand growth of any country in the world over the next three decades, as industrialisation and urbanisation surge and per capita income rises sharply. Southeast Asia’s energy needs are also growing rapidly – underlining the challenges that countries in the region face to transition to sustainable energy sources and provide energy security.

Japan and Korea – large industrial economies that have historically relied heavily on imported fuels – are also mapping out secure decarbonisation pathways.

Southeast Asia Energy Outlook 2022

The Southeast Asia Energy Outlook 2022 is the fifth edition of this World Energy Outlook Special Report. Building on its important partnership with Southeast Asia, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has published these studies on a regular basis since 2013. The studies offer insightful prospects for the ten member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) – Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam.
