Overcoming the challenge of energy efficiency financing in Asia

Overcoming the challenge of energy efficiency financing in Asia
Asia needs to rely on energy efficiency improvements to meet its growing energy demand, which has been driven by industrialisation, urbanisation, and rising incomes among the ballooning middle class.
