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.

Energizing green cities in Southeast Asia: applying sustainable urban energy and emissions planning is a 2013 report, published by the World Bank.
This report lays out a blueprint for transforming East Asia and Pacific (EAP) cities to global engines of green growth by choosing energy efficient solutions to their infrastructure needs. It urges national and municipal governments to reform institutions, build capacity, and strengthen energy planning and governance in order to mainstream energy efficiency on a citywide scale and introduce low-carbon policies in fast-growing cities in the EAP region which will define the region's energy future and its GHG footprint.
