Asian Energy Security Project
The Asian Energy Security (AES) Project produces collaborative research, involving groups from Australia, DPRK, Indonesia, Japan, Mongolia, PRC, ROK, the Russian Far East, Taiwan, and Vietnam, on different paths to address energy security issues in the region.
Collaborative research under the AES project looks at on both national and regional approaches to energy security concerns. A main focus of the AES project is on different “paths” for nuclear power development in those countries in the region where nuclear power is used, including paths where future development of nuclear generation capacity is at “minimum” and “maximum” plausible levels. Ramifications of nuclear energy choices for national and regional nuclear fuel-cycle arrangements will also be discussed.
The AES project meeting uses updates from each country on the overall energy, energy policy, and energy security situations and models different energy futures (including paths that include regional energy cooperation strategies) for each country using the energy/environmental analysis software tool (LEAP more information available at: www.energycommunity.org).
Workshops and reports from previous years of the AES project are available online at:
