Untapped renewable potential
“It is clear that Southeast Asia offers large potential for renewable energy sources, most still untapped”, says Elly Kreijkes, Clean Power Asia project director,“given the region’s rapid economic growth, increasing energy demand, growing environmental pressures, low rural electrification levels, and heavy reliance on fossil fuels and traditional biomass.”

She continues: “The ASEAN-6 countries are diverse in terms of their renewable potential when calculated on a per-capita or per-GDP basis. In absolute terms, Indonesia, for example, has the highest total realisable potential for renewables across all sectors; in per-capita terms, Malaysia has the largest renewable electricity potential; and Vietnam shows the highest potential for renewable electricity in terms of its level of economic development.”

According to Clean Power Asia’s Elly Kreijkes some countries have above average per-capita potential levels relative to their population share; “for example, Malaysia for renewable electricity and Singapore for renewable heat (especially solar thermal). Thailand and Malaysia have similar renewable electricity potential, but Thailand’s per-capita GDP level is half that of Malaysia. Nonetheless, Thailand has implemented much more ambitious targets and incentive mechanisms than Malaysia.”

Reality of the current utility energy mix
Elly Kreijkes notes that: “Although the current events in Japan have certainly brought home again the dangers of nuclear power generation, all governments have been facing the challenge of securing energy supply and optimizing the energy mix in a more environmentally friendly way in order to meet the targets set by the Kyoto Protocol. Given the fact that the majority of power production still comes from conventional and only a small, albeit growing, percentage comes from renewable, there is a real need to reduce CO2 emission on the conventional side.”

She explains that Clean Power Asia will provide a platform to exchange valuable feedback with regards to renewable and cleaner fossil power projects in the region, from technology to finance to implementation: “Thailand is very advanced in their renewable energy policy and initiatives so other countries will learn from this. The solar development in Thailand, bioenergy and hydro power developments in Malaysia, geothermal developments in Indonesia and cleaner fossil power projects in India and China will provide excellent opportunities for countries to learn from each other.

Clean Power Asia (cleanpower-asia.com) will present more than 20 case studies from countries such as Thailand, China, Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, India, Pakistan and Iran, including:
