RMI is an independent nonprofit founded in 1982 transforming the global energy system to secure a clean, prosperous, zero-carbon future for all. It engages businesses, communities, institutions, and entrepreneurs to accelerate the adoption of market-based solutions that cost-effectively shift from fossil fuels to efficiency and renewables.
With an independent, objective, and fact-based approach, RMI’s Southeast Asia Energy Team, working within the Global South Program, brings experience gained from engagements with regional governments and utilities to solve the toughest energy challenges. RMI is currently working with select country partners to catalyze a dramatic increase in access to affordable renewable energy and energy efficiency that will bring benefits to all national stakeholders.
Capturing the promise of the new energy economy requires a fundamental change in how governments, funding entities, and the private sector approach power sector development. We use our expertise in traditional, distributed energy systems and utility business models to create a robust technical and economic diagnostic that determines the costs and opportunities of existing and potential generation, transmission, and off-grid technologies.
The Southeast Asia Energy Program’s strategy focuses on three complementary components: 1) clean energy portfolios; 2) demonstration projects, and 3) energy leadership. These three components are being implemented in an integrated and strategic manner to facilitate the successful and resilient energy transition in participating (and non-participating) countries.
Currently, the Southeast Asia Energy Program is focused on engagements in Indonesia, The Philippines, and Vietnam.
