This report reviews the energy landscape in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka with the aim of supporting improved energy efficiency in these countries and the rest of South Asia. Key sectors with the potential for significant energy reduction are identified for Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

Energy Efficiency 2021 is the IEA’s annual update on global developments in energy efficiency. This year’s edition explores recent trends in energy efficiency markets at the economy-wide and sectoral levels, including developments in policy and investment.

This study presents alternative peaking and net-zero scenarios for India and highlights its implications for transition in the energy-intensive sectors such as electricity, transport, building, and industry.

India is not only on track to meet its Nationally Determined Commitment (to reduce the emission intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030) but may even exceed the commitment and achieve a reduction of 39–40 per cent if the current rate of annual decline is extrapolated by a moderate 1 per cent.

As parts of the world begin to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, a fundamental shift in the global energy system is needed to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

This paper provides an empirical analysis of the impact of energy price increases – induced notably by the removal of fossil fuel subsidies – on the joint environmental and economic performance of Indonesian plants in the manufacturing industry for the period 1980-2015.

Recent studies analyzing India’s decarbonisation efforts using external data do not confirm the achievements stated in India’s country reports submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Convention.

Does unilateral climate change policy cause companies to shift the location of production, thereby creating carbon leakage? In this paper, analyse the effect of the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) on the geographical distribution of carbon emissions by multinational companies.

If ASEAN is to support the achievement of the SDG 7 target to double the rate of energy intensity improvement, much more aggressive measures are needed than the path set by current policies. Enabling all of these SDG 7 objectives is investment in clean energy, which is falling well short of required levels.
