The Asia EDGE initiative is a U.S. whole-of-government effort to grow sustainable and secure energy markets throughout the Indo-Pacific. ENR leads the Department of State’s activities under Asia EDGE, which seeks to:

  • Strengthen energy security of allies and partners;
  • Create open, efficient, rules-based, and transparent energy markets;
  • Improve free, fair, and reciprocal energy trading relationships; and
  • Expand access to affordable, reliable energy.

This cooperative agreement will operate under the objectives and framework of the Asia EDGE initiative.

The overall goal of this cooperative agreement (CA), funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Energy resources, is to provide a convening forum to support U.S. allies and partner countries in the Indo Pacific region (e.g., East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Pacific islands) to strengthen regional energy security for economic growth, through a range of capacity-building, advisory, and technical exchange activities related to market development, governance and oversight of hydrocarbon, mineral, and power sectors.
