The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) has created a road map to achieve at least 23 percent renewable energy in the region’s energy mix by 2025, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Asean Center for Energy (ACE) announced in a press conference following the 34th Asean Ministers on Energy Meeting (AMEM) held in Na Pyi Taw, Myanmar on September 23.

Energy ministers from across Asean met to accelerate efforts to boost renewable energy deployment in the region. According to IRENA and ACE, the Asean nations are currently on track to source 17 per cent of their combined total primary energy supply from renewables by 2025. To achieve the target of 23 per cent by 2025 set by Asean at the 33rd AMEM, the region must rapidly accelerate the deployment of renewables, the ministers said in a joint statement.
