IIEC is establishing the Asia Pacific Urban Energy Association (APUEA) to support the development of sustainable urban energy systems in the Asia Pacific region. This initiative is consistent with IIEC’s mission of promoting sustainable energy and environmental solutions in developing and emerging economies.

APUEA logoSimilar initiatives to promote sustainable urban energy systems have been launched in North America and Europe, and feedback from the Asia Pacific energy sector points to a great need for such an Association in the Asia Pacific as well — the fastest growing region in terms of economy, urbanization, and energy consumption.

The IIEC is launching this Initiative in response to requests by international agencies to support the development of sustainable urban energy systems in the Asia Pacific region. To develop such systems—a combination of renewable energies, smart grids, district heating and district cooling technologies—there is a critical need for cross sectoral coordination to address energy demand, energy infrastructure, and environmental issues in the world’s rapidly growing cities. As a non-governmental organization with more than three decades of experience carrying out clean energy programs worldwide, and with regional offices in Asia, IIEC is well placed to host such an Association.

This Initiative will be launched on 6th June 2017 at the Asia Clean Energy Forum, hosted by ADB in Manila.
