Asia EDGE (Enhancing Development and Growth through Energy)

What is Asia EDGE?

Launched in July 2018 as an initiative to support the President’s vision for the Indo-Pacific region, Asia EDGE (Enhancing Development and Growth through Energy) is a U.S. whole of-government effort to grow sustainable and secure energy markets throughout the Indo-Pacific. Asia EDGE seeks to strengthen energy security, increase energy diversification and trade, and expand energy access. The initiative draws on the expertise and resources of the U.S. government, private sector, and international financial institutions. Asia EDGE builds on decades of robust U.S. government policy and programmatic work in the Indo-Pacific and recognizes that enhanced coordination among U.S. government agencies will accelerate U.S. government engagement ultimately benefitting the region and the United States. Asia EDGE signals a long-term commitment for the region.

What are the objectives of Asia EDGE?

Asia EDGE will focus on four strategic objectives: 1. Strengthen the energy security of allies and partners 2. Create open, efficient, rule-based, and transparent energy markets 3. Improve free, fair, and reciprocal energy trading relationships 4. Expand access to affordable, reliable energy.

Can the U.S. private sector partner with the U.S. government Asia EDGE? Absolutely! Asia EDGE will expand public-private partnerships, foster business-to-business connections, and help partner governments set transparent, market-based, and best-value energy policies. It will catalyze private capital by partnering with firms and international financial institutions on pooled finance, insurance and risk mitigation, commercial advocacy, and project development. U.S. industry is a natural partner in helping the U.S. government achieve its Asia EDGE objectives. The U.S. government looks forward to continuing to work closely with U.S. industry as well as identifying new areas and mechanisms for collaboration.
