Overview

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations Low Carbon Energy Programme (ASEAN LCEP) is a £15m aid programme of the UK’s Prosperity Fund. In close collaboration with local and international entities from both the public and private sectors, the programme seeks to help ASEAN harness the benefits from the deployment of low carbon energy by leveraging the UK’s extensive and proven expertise in green finance and energy efficiency. The programme operates in six countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. It seeks to support inclusive growth and poverty reduction through increased energy efficiency and adoption of low carbon energy through the use of green finance.

To achieve this, the programme offers bespoke support to each country through policy advice, capacity building, technical assistance and market development.

The Carbon Trust is partnering with EY and IMC Worldwide to deliver the programme, and is leading on the energy efficiency components. The programme is running until 2022.
