This research is an inaugural study by CDP with support from HSBC. This research is divided into two parts. The first involves CDP’s proprietary index Asia Renewable Electricity Competitiveness Index (AREC-Index), to assess individual electricity markets and corporate renewable electricity (RE) sourcing practices. The second half of the report focuses on recommendations accumulated from 36 RE stakeholders in the underlying markets.

How are markets in Asia rising to the challenge of optimal RE generation capacity? Are current market infrastructures enabling a conducive environment for RE generation, demand and supply? More importantly, how well placed are key Asian markets to meet the RE ambitions they have set for themselves to 2030 and beyond? To answer these questions, CDP puts the spotlight on ten RE markets in Asia to assess their transition towards renewables.
