The New Zealand government committed $25m to support the Asian Development Bank’s Energy Transition Mechanism (ETM) Partnership Trust Fund which focuses on driving the clean energy shift in Southeast Asia.

“Support from partners such as New Zealand is critical as we expand ETM across our region,” Asakawa said.

ETM is a regional programme that uses concession and market-based funds for the retirement and repurposing of existing coal and other fossil-fuel power plants early and replace them with renewable energy.
