Energy Transitions and Equitable Development in Southeast Asia


By midcentury, the growing economies of the Indo-Pacific will account for over half of global energy consumption and will collectively be the largest energy importers in the world. These growing energy demands coincide with worldwide efforts to reduce carbon emissions, creating a challenging balancing act between security and sustainability across the region. Southeast Asian countries have a wide range of energy demands and transition pathways, and so offer an especially strong forum for substantive and impactful policy discussions at a pivotal moment. The 2024 Clean EDGE Asia conference in Jakarta brought together key stakeholders, technical experts, and policymakers from Southeast Asia, the United States, and across the Indo-Pacific to exchange priorities, lessons learned, and challenges with the objective of improving collective understanding, and produce actionable policy recommendations to support and accelerate Southeast Asia’s equitable energy development and transition.
