Same Energy, More Power
Accelerating Energy Efficiency in Asia
Energy efficiency is often defined as delivered energy service per unit of energy supplied into a system. Supply-side energy efficiency refers to decreasing energy losses in the supply chain, for improved performance in the production and delivery of electricity and heat. Demand-side energy efficiency (DSEE) is achieved through consuming less energy for the same level of service, for improved efficiencies at the point of final energy use. DSEE, in particular, offers vast potential to meet regional energy needs in Asia, yet supply-side strategies tend to be prioritized as a focus of investment and planning.
Over the past decade, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has succeeded in quickly scaling up its investment in energy efficiency and the development of renewable resources within its developing member countries through ADB's Clean Energy Program. This report examines prospects to accelerate lending and investment for DSEE in Asia, in light of trends that are driving energy use and policy and regulatory change in developing countries. Such efforts can help realize the full potential of DSEE as a least-cost, low-carbon resource for energy security, environmental protection, and sustainable and inclusive growth benefiting all Asians.
About the Asian Development Bank
ADB's vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty. Its mission is to help its developing member countries reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people. Despite the region's many successes, it remains home to two-thirds of the world's poor: 1.7 billion people live on less than $2 a day, with 828 million on less than $1.25 a day. ADB is committed to reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration.
Based in Manila, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region. Its main instruments for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.
