dc.description.abstractThe exploitation of the vast renewable energy resource base to augment energy supply has been a major issue in developing countries of the ESCAP region, particularly in the rural areas. Methods and technologies to develop and harness these resources in an efficient and sustainable manner remain a major concern. The efficient introduction and diffusion of successfully demonstrated conversion technologies continues to be a priority area in renewable energy development.<br><br> <p>Success in the development of renewable energy is gauged through its increasing importance in the national energy balance in competition with commercial sources of energy. Future renewable energy programmes need to emphasize the initiatives that will not only take into account the economics of the technology per se, but also the opportunities to realize the commercial potential of renewable energy. Renewable energy technologies must gain market share if their large potential benefits are to be materialized. Market development is also important for the long-term success of renewable energy projects. Experience shows that the most successful dissemination programmes have focused on market development. Efforts should, therefore, be devoted to the commercialization and marketing aspects of renewable energy technologies.</p> <p>In the ESCAP region, developing countries such as Bangladesh, the Lao People&rsquo;s Democratic Republic, Myanmar and Nepal depend heavily on renewable energy resources to meet their energy needs, especially in the rural areas. Unfortunately, utilization has been based on traditional technology with very low conversion efficiencies. It must be noted, however, that efforts have been devoted by these countries to the development and use of some technologies, such as biogas, solar and wind energy to augment energy supplies. Some other renewable energies, such as, small hydro, have also been considered where such resources exist.</p> <p>It is within this context that a technical cooperation project, commercialization of renewable energy technologies for sustainable development, was conceived and in-depth studies were undertaken in the above four developing countries.</p>
