REenergising Asia: assessing renewable electricity readiness among key Asian markets

First-of-its-kind research, REenergising Asia: Assessing Renewable Electricity Readiness Among Key Asian Markets, developed by global environmental disclosure platform CDP and funded by HSBC, reveals the comparative competitiveness of Asia’s ten key markets for renewable electricity (RE) representing more than 11,000 TWh in total annual electricity demand – close to half of the global demand. The report features CDP’s proprietary index Asia Renewable Electricity Competitiveness Index (AREC-Index) which assesses individual electricity markets and corporate RE sourcing practices using CDP’s climate change disclosure data of 1,170 companies in the selected markets, including Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
