Clean Energy Program: Accelerating Low-Carbon Development in Asia and the Pacific Region

Publication | August 2012

This brochure outlines ADB's Clean Energy Program, a multipronged, umbrella program that seeks to help developing Asian countries meet their energy security needs, facilitate a transition to a low-carbon economy, bring about universal access to energy, and achieve ADB's vision of a region free of poverty.

The Clean Energy Program pursues these goals by supporting improved efficiency in the energy, transport, urban, and water sectors; aiding countries with the adoption and deployment of renewable energy sources; and improving access to energy for the poor, especially those in remote, rural areas.
