Southeast Asia is one of the most vibrant and fastest growing economic regions in the world, with energy demand having increased more than 80% over the past two decades – with no signs of slowing down. Despite a strong renewable energy potential, the region remains heavily dependent on fossil resources.
During this moderated roundtable experts from the region, including Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, will present and discuss key challenges and barriers currently hampering energy transitions in Southeast Asia. They will also share ideas for how to shape them more sustainable.
The 1.5-hour online event will be held in English and includes a Q&A session.
This initiative is organized by “CASE” (Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy for Southeast Asia), a programme funded by the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), aligned to the Southeast Asia Energy Transition Partnership (ETP).
