Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy for Southeast Asia (CASE)
As of: September 2020
Objective and activities
Southeast Asia is one of the fastest-growing developing regions in the world, with an energy demand forecast to rise by 70% by 2040. The partner countries are currently responsible for 80% of the region's energy consumption, which, according to current planning, includes the substantial use of coal. This makes the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement more difficult. The project therefore supports an energy transition with ambitious climate goals in this region. Together with the broad participation of relevant stakeholders, evidence-based solutions for key challenges are being developed aimed at reorienting the energy transition and the pertinent local dialogue. It also supports coordination in the energy sector in South East Asia and provides technical and political assistance. The project is developing a knowledge platform and it is also participating in the regional specialist dialogue as part of the South East Asian Energy Transition Partnership (ETP). The project is part of the IKI Corona Response Package.
State of implementation/results
- Against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, CASE will offer government representatives and other target groups advice on how Green Recovery can harmonize both economic recovery and sustainable energy change.
