Welcome to APUEA
The Asia Pacific Urban Energy Association (APUEA) acts as an information hub to support city policymakers, program managers, and other stakeholders in the design, development, and support of sustainable urban energy systems. Furthermore, APUEA aims to promote the development of sustainable urban energy projects, customized for the different countries in the Asia Pacific region, by actively supporting project consortiums with project development and implementation. The APUEA's database is designed to provide up-to-date information, accessible from an online portal which is administrated by a dedicated secretariat. The information will include market, technical, financial and institutional data related to urban energy, with a focus on the Asia Pacific region.
