The live online discussion is now closed. A transcript is available here.
As the lowest-cost energy resource of all, energy efficiency is crucial to developing a sustainable, affordable, and accessible energy system for all Asians. It is estimated that a 1%-4% investment in energy efficiency can meet as much as 25% of the projected increase in primary energy consumption in developing Asian countries, by 2030.
- Can demand-side energy efficiency contribute to Asia's energy independence?
- Why are large scale investments in energy efficiency not yet happening in Asia and the Pacific?
- What is the Asian Development Bank doing to advance energy efficiency and demand-side interventions in the region?
