In order to support the U.S.-Asia-Pacific Comprehensive Energy Partnership, USTDA's programs are available to foreign project sponsors for energy project development and preparation activities. USTDA will be expanding investments in sustainable energy projects such as renewable power generation, power grid modernization including smart grid, and unconventional gas development.

If you are a U.S. company working with a foreign project sponsor in Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, or Thailand and would like your project to be considered for USTDA funding, we encourage you to contact us and submit your project concept by July 31, 2013.

USTDA's Clean Energy Program in Southeast Asia
USTDA has supported sustainable energy infrastructure development in Southeast Asia for over 20 years.  Through grant assistance to foreign project sponsors, USTDA supports early project planning activities such as feasibility studies, technical assistance, and pilot projects that move clean energy projects towards financing and implementation.

About the Partnership
The U.S.-Asia-Pacific Comprehensive Energy Partnership is a partnership among the U.S. Government, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) that aims to address one of the most significant impediments to economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region: the lack of access to reliable energy and power resources. Not only is reliable access to energy essential for improving livelihoods, it is vital to sustaining growth in the rapidly emerging Asian economies.

With an estimated $9 trillion needed in investment in electricity alone through 2035 to meet growing demand, there is enormous potential for U.S. goods and services to play an important role in securing the region's energy future. USTDA stands ready to support U.S. industry's involvement in these critical infrastructure projects.
