Renewable Energy Manufacturing: Opportunities for Southeast Asia

Published by: ADB

This report explains how Southeast Asia can become a leader in renewable energy manufacturing and the benefits this will bring by boosting jobs, improving energy security, and helping the region meet its climate targets.

A co-publication between ADB, Bloomberg Philanthropies, ClimateWorks Foundation, and Sustainable Energy for All, the report focuses on ways to increase the manufacture of solar photovoltaic cells, batteries, and electric two-wheelers. It shows how countries can embrace private sector investment, deepen regional collaboration, and enact policies that help unlock Southeast Asia’s potential to meet rocketing demand for low-carbon mobility and power.
