GraphThe Asia EDGE (Enhancing Development and Growth through Energy) initiative is a U.S. whole-of-government effort to grow sustainable and secure energy markets throughout the Indo-Pacific. Asia EDGE seeks to strengthen energy security, increase energy diversification and trade, and expand energy access across the region. Asia EDGE draws on the expertise and resources of the U.S. government, private sector, and international financial institutions.
The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Energy Resources is leading this whole-of-government initiative with support of eight other key U.S. agencies: the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Energy, and Treasury; the Agency for International Development; the Export-Import Bank of the United States; Development Finance Corporation; and U.S. Trade and Development Agency.
