Regional Cooperation in the Energy Sector

Regional cooperation can play a vital role in ensuring energy security in a sustainable manner. Subregional power trade can help meet energy demand while maximizing scarce natural resources. By using different peak times of neighboring countries, regional power trade can reduce the need to build new power generation plants in each country.

Regional and subregional networks, as well as ADB, can play a pivotal role in promoting effective cooperation on energy among countries in Asia and the Pacific.
