S. Korea’s Offshore Wind Potential and Getting Locals Onside – Podcast

Energy Insights speaks with Mark Hutchinson, the director and chair of the Southeast Asia Task Force at the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

Affordable and Clean Energy: How to Achieve?

In a special report, the International Energy Agency notes that accelerated clean energy deployment will...

Can Green Hydrogen Decarbonise Asia?

Hydrogen has long been promised as a clean fuel source with the potential to aid in transitioning away from fossil fuels. A recent report by the High-level Policy Commission on Getting Asia to Net Zero and the Asia Society Policy Institute highlights how green hydrogen could help decarbonise global steel production in Asia's major economies. Green hydrogen could have a significant impact in this prime sector.

Solar and Wind Power Potential in Bangladesh

Considering the huge solar and wind power potential in Bangladesh, the investment opportunities in renewable energy are there for the taking.

Does Japan Care About the Environment

Japan's role as a member of G7 is pushing its subpar environmental performance into the spotlight. Inadequate emissions reduction goals, a high rate of fossil fuel imports and questionable fishing practices highlight this. These concerns will only grow more dire for the climate-vulnerable country and must be addressed.

Wind Energy in Japan: Prospects, Benefits and Future

While Japan’s government increasingly considers wind energy a viable option, the progress is still sluggish. Accelerating it requires addressing various administrative burdens and introducing more ambitious policies.

Global Energy Transition Index – Quantifying Progress

The Energy Transition Index is a score of how well a country is doing in their energy transition. Ultimately, this tool can be used to identify areas that need funding, support, or incentives to speed up change.

The Renewable Energy Policy in Vietnam Risks Deterring Investors

Maintaining a healthy ongoing dialogue with clean energy investors and project developers is critical if Vietnam is to get back on track and continue stunning the world with its renewable energy progress.

South Korea’s Energy Mix and Its 10th Basic Energy Plan

South Korea's decarbonisation progress so far makes hitting its 2030 and 2050 targets unrealistic. In its current form, the 10th Basic Energy Plan that will come into force this year is unlikely to change that. The country needs more ambitious renewable energy targets, a sentiment also echoed by South Korea's biggest businesses.

Malaysia’s Energy Transition: Challenges and Opportunities

Malaysia has great potential for clean energy alternatives like solar and hydropower. On paper, its energy transition is already mapped out. The question is whether it will follow this path or lock itself into a future of fossil fuel energy dependence.

Green Transportation in South Korea – a Key Enabler for the Net-Zero Revolution

South Korea is facing an uphill battle to make notable progress towards clean energy in line with the Paris Agreement commitments. Green transportation appears to be one of the most powerful tools in the government's arsenal. The opportunities in the industry are huge, while the challenges are solvable.

Wind Energy in Malaysia – Potential for Growth

Malaysia has limited capacity for wind energy due to geographic and climate factors. As a result, the country's renewable energy programs primarily focus on solar and hydropower. However, wind energy can be useful in select regions with higher than average wind energy capacity.

Battery Energy Storage Systems Development – ASEAN Members Fall Behind

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are becoming an integral part of the global push to develop renewable energy sources to rein in carbon emissions from fossil fuel-based power projects. However, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) bloc is falling behind in technology implementation due to a lack of awareness and policy initiatives.

Solar Energy in the Philippines – Current State and Future

The Philippines has been steadily investing in building out its solar energy capacity. The country's high levels of solar irradiation and large density of islands make solar a great choice. Hopefully, the Philippines can be a leader for the region and provide an example to neighbouring countries regarding the implementation of wide-scale renewable energy.
