Unlocking commercial financing for clean energy in East Asia is a 2013 report, published by the World Bank.

It was written for government decision makers in middle and high-income countries, members of international financing communities, and practitioners.

In East Asia, all middle-income countries have national targets for energy efficiency and renewable energy, and some even have targets for carbon reduction. However, a major hurdle to achieving a sustainable energy path is mobilizing the required financing. Policy makers must determine how to unlock commercial financing to scale up clean energy investments.
