Where Does India Stand in the Energy Transition?

India has one of the largest installed renewable energy capacities globally, but the country's current share of renewable energy does not cover its "fair share" of decarbonisation efforts. However, with its GDP steadily growing, it is perfect timing for India to capitalise on renewables.

Energy Transition in Singapore: A Renewable Energy Leader in Asia

Asia-Pacific’s Role in Climate Diplomacy

Fossil fuel rich countries have historically controlled climate diplomacy. As the world transitions to renewable energy, these countries will lose their global pull. This opens the door for countries to dictate their own future without the risk of damaging relationships with energy exporting allies.

Asia’s Role in Defining the Pace of Renewable Energy Transition

The talk about the renewable energy transition often revolves only around the need for new clean energy capacity to replace the existing global fossil fuel fleet. If the world is to maximize the results of its net-zero aspirations, the scope of the renewable energy transition dialogue and action should widen to also include critical aspects like the need for better policies, equal electricity access, reskilling, and more.

The Spotlight on the Asia-Pacific’s Energy Transitioning to Net-Zero Emissions

Clean energy executive, analyst, and author Joseph Jacobelli argues that the Asia Pacific region has unique features when it comes to the electricity transition to Net Zero Emissions (NTZ). He thinks that the shift from polluting fossil fuels to green and sustainable energy sources will be the biggest in the world, that capital spending will eclipse all other regions, and that some power markets will lead while others will lag.

Countries Gearing Toward the Clean Energy Transition

Asia is the main engine behind the clean energy revolution. Developing and developed markets across the continent are now increasingly working towards a sustainable future. While challenges remain, the opportunities are huge. China, India, and the ASEAN countries' success stories are just a small example of what lies ahead.
