Key Points

To understand what ‘affordable and clean’ energy means to ASEAN, the urgency to push it forward and to explore the recommendations for achieving a resilient economy in ASEAN communities.

  • Affordable and clean energy as a focus in SDGs no. 7 is also pushed by ASEAN countries, despite diverse meaning it has within the ASEAN Member States.
  • The diverse concept of ‘affordable and clean’ is rooted from various economic capabilities, geographical conditions, and resource capacities that exist within the region.
  • ASEAN no longer needs to choose between affordable OR clean, since providing affordable AND clean energy is urgent and now become feasible.
