Through the 2013 Asian and Pacific Energy Forum (APEF), ESCAP member States requested the secretariat to facilitate the dissemination and exchange of information by “increasing the coherence and availability of energy statistics and policy-related information." In response, the secretariat, with the support of the Russian Federation, developed the Asia Pacific Energy Portal.

The platform’s goal is to facilitate research, analysis, and informed decision-making within the Asia-Pacific region’s energy sector.  It is an open-access information platform, providing data visualizations for an extensive set of energy statistics, full-text policies, and interactive infrastructure maps.

The Portal offers a collection of more than 200 datasets from global institutions including UN Data, the International Energy Agency, the World Bank, UNComtrade, IRENA, and Bloomberg. More than 3,000 policy documents have been collected from hundreds of official websites. More than 6,000 power plants have been mapped.

With this Portal, ESCAP aims to support research, analysis, and, ultimately, informed decision-making.
