An International Trade Association (ITA)-commissioned study by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) assesses the landscape for clean energy standards adoption in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The importance of cross-border cooperation on standards will increase as Members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) work to create the “ASEAN Power Grid,” first envisioned by the bloc in 1999. In 2022, Singapore will begin renewable electricity imports from Malaysia and Laos, with the latter being the first 100 megawatts (MW) of electricity transmitted on the regional grid system developed under the Laos-Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore Power Integration Project. As regional partners look to further strengthen their energy security and expand the cross-border power trade, adopting common interoperability standards will be vital for vendors within or exporting to ASEAN’s single market.
