The Technology List and Perspectives for Transition Finance in Asia (TLPTFA) aims to support the smooth energy transitions in developing Asia with realistic approaches that can facilitate many countries in Asia to embark on pathways to carbon neutrality while considering energy security, affordability, accessibility, and environmental protection simultaneously. Various governments and international organisations have established standards and guidelines to ensure financial flows are consistent with a pathway towards net-zero CO2 emissions. However, these tend to focus on green technologies rather than transition technologies and often have limited geographic relevance. Therefore, the TLPTFA examines each candidate technology in a manner that will help financial institutions make an initial assessment of its suitability for transition finance.
