ADB has been providing assistance to its developing member countries in the energy sector for more than 40 years. Its support has been focused on the expansion of electricity sector programs, the training of government energy agencies, as well as the improvement of power sector reforms, governance, and efficiency. With ADB serving as the regional hub for the Sustainable Energy for All Initiative (SE4ALL) in the Asia-Pacific region together with UNDP and UN ESCAP, it is a hope that the objectives and goals of the SE4ALL will be achieved. The goals are: providing universal access to modern energy services, doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency, and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix. ADB also aims to overcome the energy challenges in the region with SECOE—the first of its kind in the region to build capabilities, foster partnerships and unite key decision makers under a structured programme dedicated to clean energy and universal access.
