Power Sector Vision
Greater Mekong countries have an opportunity to become leaders in clean, renewable electricity. Renewable energy sources such as sun, wind, water, geothermal, biomass, and ocean energy abound and there is an opportunity to leapfrog and embrace the best technologies now. But choices made in the coming months and years could lead to continued dominance of heavily polluting high carbon fossil fuel power generation, unsustainable hydropower projects or even to a dependence on risky and costly nuclear power.
The question is Can the region achieve a secure, sustainable power sector for all by 2050 by shifting away from plans based mainly on polluting fossil fuels, nuclear power and large hydro power to an energy efficient system built around clean and inexhaustible renewable energy?

A renewable energy future is significantly cheaper than a future based on coal and nuclear.
Solar is already cheaper than coal in some countries of the Greater Mekong and will only get cheaper over time.
