Transforming Electric Power Generation for a Low-Carbon Environment

The transformation of the electric power sector to reduce greenhouse gases presents a policy challenge for East and South Asia. Competitively priced electric power generation is vital to economic development, erasing poverty, and improving living conditions in the region.
