Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development &
Climate, "Power Generation and Transmission Task Force"
The Asia-Pacific Partnership
on Clean Development and Climate brings together seven major Asia-Pacific
countries – Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Korea, and the United
States – that collectively account for more than half of the world’s
economy, population, and energy use. The Partners are cooperating in an
effort to address increased energy needs and the associated issues of air
pollution, energy security, and climate change. An innovative public-private
sector effort, the Asia-Pacific Partnership was established to achieve these
objectives in ways that promote economic development, reduce poverty, and
accelerate the development and deployment of cleaner, more efficient
technologies. The Partnership has established eight public-private sector
Task Forces, three of which –Cleaner Fossil Energy Task Force, Power
Generation and Transmission Task Force, and Renewable Energy & Distributed
Generation Task Force – relate specifically to the electric power sector.
Potential areas for cooperation in the power sector would include the
improvement of thermal efficiency of power plants, fuel switching and/or
multi-firing, reform of electricity markets, loss reduction in transmission,
and demand side management.
