This special edition spotlights the advancements made by the
ASEAN Member States (AMS) towards net zero, particularly in the
wake of COP 28.
The ACCEPT II study tour to Norway, conducted November 5-11, provided an in-depth look into Norwegian experiences and knowledge about the energy-climate
nexus, which is crucial for the ASEAN Member States (AMS) and their aim of reaching net-zero by 2050. This initiative aligns with the ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation Phase II, especially the section on Regional Energy Policy and Planning.
Through a comparative review of three key factors, namely: renewable energy legislation, energy governance reform, and general conditions for investors; this paper identified the obstacles and solutions to attract investment in renewable energy in ASEAN region.
Guidelines for Developing Indicators to Track Action on Energy-Related Climate Change Mitigation Policies
The world’s commitment to realising the Paris Agreement has resulted in the development of climate change mitigation policies relating to several sectors, including the energy sector. Enhancing the collection and collating
of energy statistics will help to improve the formulation, planning, execution, monitoring and outcomes assessment of the policies. To be successful, policies must be based on appropriate indicators and high-quality data. This report provides guidelines for creating good indicators that can be used to track action in the energy transition. By presenting international guidance on energy statistics used globally, best practices in energy-related
climate change evidence-based policies and case studies from the ASEAN countries, this publication aims to lay out the essential knowledge needed to equip the policy makers.
