Regional energy planning including cross-border energy trading infrastructure has been identified as a key impetus area in recent studies that reflect ADB's commitment of supporting regional cooperation in South Asia. A regional technical assistance (RETA 6383) for Preparing the Energy Sector Dialogue and SAARC Energy Center Capacity Development led to SAARC Regional Energy Trade Study (SRETS) which was endorsed by the SAARC Energy Ministers in 2011. The follow up South Asia Regional Power Exchange Study (SRPES) under the Regional Research and Development Technical Assistance (R-RDTA 7529) examined the prospect of a regional power exchange to contribute to advancing regional electricity trade in South Asia. The final report has been already endorsed by a SAARC Intergovernmental Meeting of technical experts held in Nov 2012 and it is expected to be published by July 2013
