  • Monday, 03 Dec 2018

THE coming years could be a watershed moment for renewable energy (RE) in the Asean region. Although South-East Asia is considered a laggard in terms of RE deployment, the region is, arguably, where the most significant potential for sustainably-sourced energy lie.

The conditions for the development of RE here, particularly solar energy, could not be better.
