ASEAN countries are actively promoting energy efficiency policies to address the rising energy consumption accompanying economic development. However, over the 2-decade period from 2000 to 2020, nations with substantial populations and economies, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Viet Nam, made consistent progress in enhancing energy efficiency. Regrettably, during this period, their carbon intensity deteriorated, signifying an increase in CO2 emissions despite advancements in energy conservation. 

This report delves into an analysis of the status of energy efficiency, carbon intensity, and other contributing factors in the target countries. It aims to pinpoint the underlying causes for the discrepancy between improvements in energy efficiency and the worsening of carbon intensity. Additionally, it examines challenges related to energy efficiency policies and provides policy recommendations with a focus on fostering low-carbon development.
