ASEAN’s energy demand is projected to expand 2.4 times by 2040 according the 5th ASEAN Energy Outlook. In 2040, ASEAN’s GDP is projected to have a threefold increase from only USD 2.56 trillion in 2015 and the region’s total population grows to over 760 million with 0.7% per year on average comparing to 630 million in 2015.

The New Role of Coal Fired Power Plant in the Era of Energy Transition
Year: 2020
Description:

Coal will still play a big part through the effort of the energy transition in ASEAN. However, changes are needed to ensure that coal utilisation will not impair ASEAN’s energy security and deter the region’s effort in achieving a cleaner and more 600sustainable energy sector in the future.

ASEAN is aiming 23% RE share by 2025, it is projected that achieving the target will not reduce fossil fuel significantly.
ASEAN Member States are adopting more policies to improve the situation on coal utilisation.
Success stories from other countries and regions show that coal can still play an important role in a cleaner and more sustainable energy sector.
ACE-JCOAL collaboration is initiated to investigate the process of transitioning coal into its possible new role in ASEAN energy development.
