The Asian Regional Energy Initiative of the IEI


We have focused on analytical studies -- quantitative and  qualitative, at the micro and macro levels. Though concentrated on energy, in particular, the power sector, our studies also include economic and environmental issues. Reports have been prepared and/or papers published in the following fields: 

  • the life-cycle costs of options of generation and conservation; 
  • regional power & energy requirements, based on the end-use approach, and the costs of meeting them; 
  • integrated resource planning (IRP) for the power sector, its use around the world and applicability & barriers to implementation in specific regions; 
  • efficiency improvement among common electrical devices; retrofitting/replacement;  
  • renewable sources for electricity generation;
  • alternative fuels for cooking;
  • power sector restructuring and related issues; 
  • environmental impacts - standards and regulation; 
  • sustainable provision of rural energy services 

    Abstracts of reports on these topics are available. [
