dc.description.abstractRapid economic growth in developing Asia has been generating high level of demand for energy. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), while the current global financial crisis is constraining short-term economic performance, primary energy demand in developing Asia is projected to almost double between 2006 and 2030. This growth is not sustainable if most of this energy has to be met by fossil fuels. Increased fossil fuel consumption will significantly increase greenhouse gas emissions. Scientists have documented a rise in atmospheric temperature and other significant climate changes, some of which have serious consequences for Asia and the Pacific. Therefore, addressing energy efficiency and climate change is a fundamental challenge to achieve sustainable development.
