Formally launched in mid-June 2009, the initiative links private and public sectors in the Asia-Pacific region to stimulate the scaling up of access to energy by improving the sharing of information and resources and the flow of financing towards projects using appropriate technologies and a proven business case. Its aim is to provide access for 100 million new users in Asia and the Pacific by 2015.
