Energy Sector Strategy: Sustainable Energy for Asia

Our Sustainable Energy for Asia Strategy sets out a clear framework for AIIB to invest in energy projects that will increase access to clean, safe and reliable electricity for millions of people in Asia. To implement the strategy, the Bank will support its members to do their part as expressed in the Paris Agreement to, "hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius". It will achieve this by aligning its support with its members’ national energy investment plans, including their nationally determined contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement.

In December 2021, AIIB initiated an update to the Energy Sector Strategy to reflect the latest sectoral and institutional context, the Bank’s Corporate Strategy as well as its climate finance target and commitment to Paris Alignment. The public is invited to participate in the public consultation on the Energy Sector Strategy Update. Comments can be submitted until June 3, 2022. Learn more here.
