ASEAN Power Grid Advancement Program Officially Launched

28 February 2024

The ASEAN Power Grid Advancement Program (APG-AP) led by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) in partnership with the Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy for Southeast Asia (CASE) project and Southeast Asia Energy Transition Partnership (ETP) officially held a kickoff meeting in November 2023. The event was part of the ASEAN Power Grid Meeting Series which took place in Jakarta gathering key energy stakeholders in the region to discuss the advancement of the ASEAN Power Grid.

The ASEAN Power Grid (APG) is a key strategic regional infrastructure project aiming to accelerate regional connectivity and market integration in the region.

Under the agreement, ACE-CASE-ETP, who are key players in Southeast Asia’s energy transition, will combine resources and efforts to successfully advance the ASEAN Power Grid from its planning stages to implementation. The APG-AP will provide a platform to foster exchange, progress and respond to the momentum of APG. The APG-AP will first examine the Lao PDR-Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore Power Interconnection Project (LTMS-PIP) to identify lessons learned for other upcoming multilateral power trading opportunities in the region. The objective of the APG is to drive greater integration of renewable energies in ASEAN and provide member countries with accessible, affordable and resilient electricity.
