An energy crisis in two of Asia's key economies that caused power shortages and threatened slower growth is beginning to ease, though further risks remain.

That's allowing power plants and major industrial consumers to start rebuilding stockpiles.

Spot power prices have tumbled in India as electricity shortfalls there have also been addressed. "Both countries continue to face some risks in winter supply, but the shortages have moderated," said Xizhou Zhou, Washington-based managing director of global power and renewables at IHS Markit.
