NewsBase’s Asia Power Monitor (AsiaElec) was first published in 2009, replacing the previous China-dedicated ChinElec. AsiaElec covers utility-scale power developments and policy across all main industry sectors, including coal and gas-fired thermal power, nuclear, renewables, hydro, combined heat and power (CHP), transmission, grid and storage. It also covers the closely interlinked coal-mining sector.
Published every Tuesday, AsiaElec’s coverage includes China, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia and Myanmar, Nepal, North Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor Leste and Vietnam. This is supported by a network of skilled journalists across the region.
NewsBase is also completely independent. Our commentary, analysis and insight are exclusive to NewsBase customers and are not syndicated to any third party.
What, Why and What Next?
- Commentary – Since its launch, AsiaElec has followed key developments in the power sector across Asia-Pacific. This has included large periods of transition and new development, such as Japan’s policy turnaround on nuclear energy post-Fukushima, the ramp-up in generation in response to China’s ever-growing demand, the newly emerging markets in countries such as Myanmar and how industries are coping with record-low coal prices. We have interviewed leading industry figures and analysts, providing a unique and exclusive insight into the stories that matter.
- Projects & Companies – AsiaElec reports on project investment and approval, providing news and intelligence on key developments. This is ideal, not only for investors, developers and competitors, but for service, infrastructure and construction companies, who benefit from knowing where best to make their next key move in a rapidly developing market.
- Local Press – Our News in Brief section also allows our customers to keep track of what the local press are saying in each region. Alongside local press cuttings, News in Brief also features press releases from companies operating in Asia.
