Energy poverty is one of the most pressing issues of this century. It’s a problem of technology, of infrastructure, of economics, of culture, and of politics – and it impacts over a billion people in the Asia-Pacific region alone.
Solving this problem requires solutions from the top-down and the bottom-up – everything from global finance to village-level technologies. The Partnership was formed specifically to build platforms for cooperation, exchange, innovation, and project development in this area. We’re bringing together key stakeholders from business, finance, government, and NGOs for a singular purpose: to drive action.
We aim to provide energy access to
100 million people in Asia and
the Pacific Region by 2015.

In archipelagoes like Indonesia, Maldives, the Philippines or the Pacific Island countries, the hotel industry has expanded its business in areas with limited or no electricity supply. Due to the lack of electricity, many of the hotels and resorts generate their own power to meet their needs using diesel generators. This is not only expensive but also a growing source for Greenhouse Gas emissions. Switching to renewable energy using local resurces is a cost-effective solution that can provide electricty to nearby communities and thus can be an important tool for developing the energy infrastructure in remote islands.
