Abstract

A comparison of the electricity sectors in 14 developing Asian economies (DAEs) shows that DAEs are increasingly relying on coal to meet electricity needs, while most of them are far below the world average in terms of nuclear energy and renewable power utilization; East Asian economies generally perform better than the world median on operational efficiency but below the world median on electric energy intensity reduction; and South Asian economies in general, are below world medial levels on both the two measures.
