With energy demand in Asia and the Pacific forecast to increase by 60 per cent from 2010 to 2035, access to reliable and adequate energy services will remain a focus for decades to come. Countries in the region need to maximize their potential, improve energy access, increase shares of renewable energy, promote energy efficiency and strengthen cooperation on energy security and connectivity. The 2016 Regional Trends Report on Energy for Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific supports the implementation of the SDG7 and outcomes of the Asian and Pacific Energy Forum 2013. Development of the 2016 edition follows a similar process to the 2015 Report: consultation with ESCAP Member States for topic selection, case study collection and review; discussion with experts on thematic areas; and engagement of consultants on specific research. The 2016 Regional Trends Report consists of two parts. Part I (Chapter 2) provides an overview of the implementation of the 15 areas of action, which will contribute to the midterm review implementation of the outcomes of the APEF 2013 and preparation for the second APEF, to be held in Tonga in 2018. Part II (Chapters 3, 4, 5 and 6) discusses emerging energy issues in the global market and Asia-Pacific region and two pre-selected topics by ESCAP Member States: (a) transboundary power trade for increasing power sector sustainability and regional connectivity; and (b) developing effective policies for widening access to energy services.

Electricity market reforms have been underway worldwide for the last 20 years. They have included restructuring, privatization, regulation and the introduction of market mechanisms in electricity generation and trading. This publication analyses the impacts of these reforms as well as non-reform factors, on the selection of electricity generation technologies, including nuclear power, by investors. A country case study approach has been adopted in developing the material presented in the publication. Each case study is organized around the following themes: rationale for reform; nature of the electricity market reform; how has the reform shaped the allocation of investment risk in electricity markets and how has this risk allocation influenced investor choice of generation technologies; and finally, how have non-reform related factors influenced investors' choice. This publication will be of use by stakeholders in the strategic planning of the electricity sector, including policy makers, policy analysts, policy advisors, power sector regulators and utility operators.
