Integration and renewable energy in Emerging Asia

OECD Development Centre

Regional co-operation in the green growth and energy area is limited in Emerging Asia. In particular, enhancing co-operation in renewable energies will be critical to ensure sustainable growth. Renewables are likely to become more important as demand for energy increases. While much of the region’s potential remains untapped, barriers to trade in energy will need to be overcome to make the full use of these resources. Hydropower in the Mekong River Basin offers a useful example not only of the promise of power generation from renewable sources, but also the need for improved environmental and economic co-operation in managing these resources.
