The preparation of the Lao PDR’s energy statistics regulation is consistent with the objective of the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) of Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), to enhance energy data and statistics to support policy planning and actions for the energy related sectors. In recent years, the Ministry has emphasised the importance of having accurate energy statistics in place to guide the development of energy policy in Lao PDR. Accurate energy statistics are fundamental to establishing appropriate energy policies that can promote energy efficiency and conservation (EEC), deployment of renewable energy, affordable energy supply, maintenance of energy supply security, and investment in clean technologies and clean fuels.
