Energy Efficiency Developments and Potential Energy Savings in the Greater Mekong Subregion

Prepared in collaboration with the governments of Cambodia, the Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, and Viet Nam, this report was published with the objective of helping accelerate the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). Energy efficiency targets and developments for Cambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand, and Viet Nam are reported in this publication.

Substantial energy efficiency savings are forseen over the next 15 to 20 years for GMS countries, with overall energy efficiency savings amounting to almost 60 million tons of oil equivalent annually by 2030. Most GMS governments have established plans for reaching these targets and have implemented policy, regulatory, and program measures to lower energy intensity and achieve energy efficiency. GMS countries project that their energy needs will double or triple over the next 15 years and greater energy efficiency offers a win–win public–private sector partnership for reducing unsustainable reliance on high-carbon (coal and oil) fuels.
