2 February 2018

Key Points

Endorsed and affirmed by the Joint Ministerial Statement of the 35th ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting (AMEM) in Pasay City, the Philippines, in September 2017, the ASEAN Member States (AMS) have exemplified on advancing the energy transition in ASEAN towards a clean, secure, affordable, and sustainable energy future. Through a reduction in energy intensity and an increase in the deployment of renewable energy options, the energy transition would yield significant benefits for the region. The endeavour continues with the ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC) 2016 – 2025 that determine to increase the RE component to 23% by 2025 in the ASEAN Total Primary Energy Supply (TPES) and initiate multilateral electricity trade in at least one sub-region by 2018. For ASEAN to achieve the target, the share of RE in power generation should reach around 42%, according to the 5th ASEAN Energy Outlook.
