Project Summary

Launched in 2010, the Energy Smart Communities Initiative (ESCI) has contributed greatly to the advancement of green growth, sustainable development, long-term job creation and APEC’s goal of energy intensity reduction of at least 45 percent by 2035 with 2005 as the reference. As the information hub of ESCI network, the Knowledge Sharing Platform (KSP) has helped disseminate and share best practices of ESCI’s areas of focus in a systematic manner.
