Sustainable Surge: Driving Renewable Energy Across Southeast Asia


The Southeast Asian Renewable Energy Council, a coalition formed by the energy ministries and leading renewable energy companies across the region, partnered with Eurogroup Consulting to spearhead a renewable energy revolution. The ambitious goal was to drastically increase the adoption of renewable energy sources, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and addressing the pressing challenges of climate change and energy security in Southeast Asia.


The region faced several significant barriers to the adoption of renewable energy, including:

  • Insufficient infrastructure and investment to support large-scale deployment of renewable technologies.
  • Varied regulatory environments and policies across countries, hindering cohesive regional progress.
  • Lack of public awareness and acceptance of renewable energy benefits.

Eurogroup Consulting formulated a comprehensive strategy aimed at accelerating the transition to renewable energy in Southeast Asia. The plan included:

  • Mobilizing investment for renewable energy projects, including solar, wind, hydro, and biomass, through innovative financing models and public-private partnerships.
  • Harmonizing regulatory frameworks and incentives across the region to encourage renewable energy adoption.
  • Launching public awareness campaigns to educate citizens on the environmental and economic benefits of renewable energy.

The initiative began with a detailed assessment of the renewable energy potential and existing barriers in each member country. Eurogroup Consulting facilitated multi-stakeholder workshops to align on strategic priorities and collaborative actions. The firm also assisted in developing a regional renewable energy investment fund to finance key projects and infrastructure upgrades. To garner public support, a series of high-visibility campaigns were launched, highlighting successful renewable energy implementations and their positive impact.


To sustain the momentum of renewable energy adoption and ensure its long-term success, Eurogroup Consulting recommended:

  • Continuing to foster regional collaboration and knowledge sharing on best practices and technological advancements in renewable energy.
  • Enhancing capacity building initiatives for local governments and businesses to improve project implementation and management skills.
  • Strengthening grid infrastructure and exploring energy storage solutions to accommodate the variable nature of renewable energy sources.
