The project aims to study and identify the potential, challenges and solutions for application of distributed energy sources in promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy in low carbon model towns of APEC, with a focus on the government policies required to support distributed energy. The technical and economical barriers which may hinder the development of distributed energy and their possible solution will be discussed. The application of distributed energy and its potential benefit to APEC economies will be studied. A workshop will be organized in October 2012 in Beijing to share findings from the study, and a final report is to be issued in December 2012.
