Southeast Asia is one of the most vibrant and fastest growing economic regions in the world, with energy demand having increased more than 80 percent over the past two decades with no signs of slowing down. Despite a strong endowment of 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 socially, economically and environmentally friendly.
The 1.5-hour online event will be held in English and includes a Q & A session.
This event is being organized on the occasion of the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD).
Participation is free of charge.
