The potential for enhanced power grid connectivity and cross-border electricity trade in the Asia-Pacific region is significant. Connecting power grids of adjoining countries and subregions can capitalize on complementarities between countries in terms of energy demand and energy resource availability, particularly wind, solar and hydropower potential. Achieving power grid connectivity can enhance the availability and affordability of electricity, and accelerate the utilization of renewables. It therefore contributes to environmental sustainability of the energy sector, while advancing Sustainable Development Goal 7 and the broader 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
