Accelerating the Indo-Pacific energy transition

The Indo-Pacific is home to 4.3 billion people – more than half of humanity. Studies indicate that the Indo-Pacific could meet ~90 per cent of its power demand using renewables such as solar and wind, but this needs a clear and defined vision for its energy future. This Working Paper focuses on six Indo-Pacific countries – Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Singapore, and Viet Nam, which collectively house a quarter of the world's population, explores the gaps in existing multilateral processes, and notes the critical requirements to accelerate the Indo-Pacific energy transition.
