Welcome to APUEA
The Asia Pacific Urban Energy Association (APUEA) acts as an information hub to support city policymakers, program managers, and other stakeholders in the design, development, and support of sustainable urban energy systems. Furthermore, APUEA aims to promote the development of sustainable urban energy projects, customized for the different countries in the Asia Pacific region, by actively supporting project consortiums with project development and implementation.
