Development Banks Can Catalyze the Clean Energy Transition, Starting in South and Southeast Asia

"...3) Work with Governments to Enable Country-level Energy TransitionsAs in most regions, some countries in South and Southeast Asia lack policies that can support the clean energy transition by giving markets clear signals about the future of renewables. Persistent fossil fuel subsidies create strong disincentives in many countries for energy users to switch to renewables; this is the case with Bangladesh's subsidies for kerosene. Some countries offer no tax rebates for renewable energy projects..."
