Rapid Economic Growth in Developing Countries is Driving Growth in Asia Pacific Renewable Power Market

The Asia Pacific region is home to the most rapidly developing economies with high economic growth rates. This economic growth has led to a rise in energy demand and consumption and therefore a shortage in many countries. Additionally, since the majority of energy is currently produced through conventional thermal sources it has led to an increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As a result there arises a need to develop renewable resources to ensure energy security and to address rising GHG emissions. Thus the share of renewables in the Asia Pacific energy mix is expected to rise from 4% in 2009 to about 13% in 2020 on the back of supportive government policies and incentives.

Infrastructural Bottlenecks are Restricting the Growth of Renewable Power

Insufficient supportive grid, transmission and distribution infrastructures in many countries might lead to the delay or cancellations of renewable power plant installations. The transmission and distribution of electricity generated from renewable sources might be affected due to low grid capacity and limited access to the national grid in many regions within the Asia Pacific countries. Thus, the weak transmission and distribution infrastructure has become a restricting factor in the growth potential of renewable energy.

China Overtook the US as the Largest Investor in Renewable Energy in 2009

China has spent $34.6 billion on renewable energy in 2009, whereas the US spent $18.6 billion - about half of what China has invested. Renewable energy investments were mainly allocated to small hydropower projects, solar power projects, and wind power projects. This high level of investments in the country has mainly been driven by stable and long term supportive government policies and easy access to credit. The country aims to produce 8% of its total energy consumption from renewable sources and to achieve this goal; the government has planned to invest another $216 billion in the coming five years for renewable energy development, 170% more than as planned by the US ($80 billion).
