“Transitioning towards Multilateral Electricity Trade in Asia and the Pacific: A Discussion Paper” has been prepared for the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) to review the global experience of multilateral electricity trade, with particular emphasis on its rationale, progress, and outcomes.

This review is intended to form a ‘discussion paper’ for the 10th meeting of the UNESCAP Expert Working Group on Energy Connectivity, which will include a discussion on facilitating the transition from bilateral towards multilateral electricity trade across
Asia-Pacific. The review in this report is developed based on a case study approach. Regional electricity markets considered in this study are classified into three groups: mature, transition and emerging markets.
