Pacific Energy Update 2017

Institutional Document | June 2017

ADB is supporting access to energy, renewable energy generation, efficient use of resources, and strengthening public and private sector institutions in the Pacific.

ADB works across the Asia and Pacific region to strengthen communities and improve lives by supporting governments, businesses, and infrastructure to operate more effectively. Clean energy is an essential resource for driving low-carbon economic growth and for enhancing the quality of life for people in the region. The Pacific Energy Update 2017 describes ADB’s work in the energy sector; it highlights how technical assistance and energy sector projects are helping to build resilient, low-carbon economies, while increasing access to clean, reliable power in the Pacific.

As energy demand in the Asia and Pacific region grows rapidly, ADB is helping to improve regional energy systems with a three-tiered energy approach. ADB seeks to

  • promote energy efficiency and renewable energy;
  • maximize access to energy for all; and
  • promote energy sector reform, capacity building, and effective governance.

This approach leverages national and regional partnerships to strengthen energy systems, support low-carbon economic growth, and improve living conditions across ADB’s Pacific developing member countries.
