China is a world leader in wind power generation. Its current wind power generation capacity has reached 149 GW.
Hydropower in Malaysia accounts for 20% of all feasible generation potential and is therefore set to expand in the coming years. It is also essential for the Malaysian efforts to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030. As Malaysia draws on vast resources of hydropower due to high mean elevation combined with enough precipitation, this enables the country to reap the benefits of hydro as a key catalyst to drive and accelerate socio-economic growth.
Thailand is endowed with abundant solar energy resources across the country, with more solar power capacity than all the rest of Southeast Asia combined. Its total installed solar PV generating capacity increased tenfold in the first half of the 2010s, which is promising for Thailands 2036 solar PV target of 6000 MW capacity.
In an effort to establish Vietnam as one of Asia's renewable powerhouses, Vietnam has landed a place among the top 10 countries with the highest capacity of solar energy installed, reaching 16,504 MW installed capacity in 2020.
