ASEAN-German Energy Programme (AGEP)

Objective

  • To support the ASEAN Member States in improving regional coordination for the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Description

A regional guiding document, ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC) 2016-2025 envisages target of 23 percent of renewable energy (RE) share in total primary energy supply (TPES) by 2025. As for energy efficiency and conservation, the AMS are committed to achieve 20 percent reduction in energy intensity by 2020 and 30 percent by 2025 based on 2005 level. To achieve these targets, ASEAN needs to harmonise energy efficiency standards and labelling requirements, align building codes more strongly with energy efficiency and conservation criteria, and to strengthen research and development on the use of renewable energy.

Continuing the efforts of its successor, ‘Renewable Energy Support Programme for ASEAN (ASEAN-RESP)’, the ASEAN-German Energy Programme (AGEP) supports the partner, ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE), to improve regional coordination for the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency towards sustainable energy for all. AGEP is being implemented in regional contexts in all ASEAN Member States. However, the programme can also address specific topics that only apply to individual AMS. The joint programme operates in three areas of action:

  • Providing concrete and regionally coordinated action strategies
  • Improving the regional technical exchange in the field of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency and Conservation
  • Strengthening capacity of ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE)

The programme is implemented from October 2016 up to June 2019.
