The Asia-Pacific region is becoming increasingly important as a driver for world economic growth and as an investment destination. Renewable power is not yet viewed as the solution to rapidly rising energy demand by most governments in the region, however they are increasingly aware of the importance of reducing their dependence on energy imports and of participating in the international effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable energy also represents a low-cost solution to the problem of rural electrification. For these reasons, countries in the region have established legal frameworks to support renewable electricity deployment — both by improving incentives on offer, and by restructuring their power sectors.
This report, similar to London Research International’s pioneering report on the Renewable Electricity Sector for 20 European countries, provides a detailed analysis of the renewable electricity sector of 11 key countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Involving a spectrum of geopolitical considerations and market factors, the analysis assigns numerical scores to each country in terms of both risks and opportunities involved in investing in renewable electricity development.
