Renewable energy in South-East Asia

09 June 2011

Demand for electricity is increasing quickly in South-East Asia.

Development of new renewable energy projects is a large part of the solution for the triple goals of reducing carbon emissions, dealing with resource scarcity and meeting increased demand for electricity.

The ten South-East Asian countries all have policies to support development of renewable energy. These policies are all different, and have delivered a wide variety of results.

This lecture, presented by David Raubenheimer, Managing Director for Direct Projects at Sindicatum Carbon Capital, briefly summarises practical aspects of these policies with some case studies. The lecture outlines what installations have been put into place, summarise the technologies pursued and examine the types of financing and sponsors that have been involved.
