Abstract: Asia has been a leader among developing nations in providing opportunities for private power investment, and almost all countries now have private power programmes either in place or on the books. Private power is an important issue for the Asian nations. In the coming decade, growth in the region's electricity demand is expected to average 7 to 8 per cent a year. To meet this growth in demand, the World Bank estimates that a total of 340 000 MW of additional generating capacity will be needed, with a likely investment cost of around US$550 billion for generation, transmission and distribution.
