Energy in the Greater Mekong Subregion
The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Energy Roadmap aims to deliver sustainable, secure, competitive and low carbon energy in the subregion with focus on:
- Enhancing access to modern energy
- Developing low carbon and renewable domestic resources
- Improving regional energy cooperation and energy security
- Promoting private sector participation in energy development.
The road map, which has been adopted by the GMS countries at the 15th GMS Ministerial Conference in Thailand (June 2009), was based on an earlier ADB Energy Strategy Study.
The road map is being implemented with an initial emphasis on promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency and enhancing the environmental sustainability of regional energy plans and programs.
