Energy Security of Asia Pacific


Asia is the world’s largest and most populous continent; covering approximately 30% of the earth’s land area and 60% of population. The Asian Development Bank estimates that the Asia Pacific countries will collectively increase their energy demand by 67% between 2010 and 2035, accounting for more than half the planet’s consumption.

Asia Pacific’s share of global demand will rise to 47% in 2035, twice as large as the second largest consuming region (Europe and Eurasia with 18% of global demand), according to BP's energy outlook. Overall CO2 emissions from energy consumption will increase 44% by 2035. Here we look at energy sources in Asia, trends and policies, including efforts of the countries to diversify their energy resources.
