Data-driven energy transition is crucial for developing sustainable and efficient energy systems. By using data to inform decision-making, energy professionals, researchers, policymakers, and advocates can ensure that they are taking evidence-based actions toward energy transition. However, energy transition is rapidly changing and requires access to a wide range of information and data.
As a result, energy transition professionals, including researchers, think tanks, clean energy advocates, and policymakers, often need help finding relevant information in one place. Collecting and synthesizing data from multiple sources can be time-consuming and limiting to their work.
Southeast Asia Information Platform for Energy Transition (SIPET) is launching a new resource, the Power Sector Data Browser, to provide a one-stop-shop for data on a variety of indicators related to the power sector, making it an essential tool for researchers, policymakers, and stakeholders interested in the energy landscape of Southeast Asia. The Data Browser is a user-friendly online resource that displays up-to-date quantitative power sector data of ten ASEAN countries sourced from open data.
The Data Browser also features insight pages called the Power Sector Snapshots, which provide a snapshot of the quantitative and qualitative data based on the Power Sector Data Browser for the four major Southeast Asian countries (Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam). It presents an interactive, easy-to-understand flow-text, supported by interactive figures, giving insights into the country's energy landscape.
At the launch event, we will showcase the "use cases" of the Data Browser and demonstrate how it can support your efforts in driving progress towards a sustainable energy future.
