In particular, renewables contribute 7% of primary energy supply in China, 11% in South Asia, and 5% in Southeast Asia. 

“Total energy demand continues to grow faster than clean energy supply, and that includes

nuclear, hydro and other non-emitting resources. Emissions continue to increase each year,” the report also read. 

“A young coal fleet—except in Australia--will delay incentives to retire coal plants early in Asia-Pacific.”
