Clean Energy

Energy efficiency is emerging as one of the key options that can help nations in Asia and the Pacific meet the region's growing energy needs in a clean and effective way.

Increasing the efficiency of energy use and supply yields lower costs and increases availability of energy. It also produces large environmental and economic benefits:

  • It eases growth in fossil fuel demand and on upward pressure on energy prices.
  • It improves energy security.
  • It reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

There are now greater opportunities to improve energy efficiency, thanks to technical advances that have increased the viability of new and renewable sources of energy as well as the option for off-grid, community-based electricity supply.
