Mr. Simon Rolland, Ms. Vera Rodenhoff, Ms. Adela Tesarova, Ms. Frauke Röser, Mr. Fabby Tumiwa, Ms. Siripha Junlakarn, Mr. Nithi Nesadurai, Mr. Simon Rolland Mr. Red Constantino, Ms. Nhien Ngo, Mr. Sze Ping Lo, Please note you have to register in advance to access the event.

While being one of the fastest developing regions in the world with energy demand projected to grow by 60% over the next 20 years, fossil fuels remain Southeast Asia’s dominant source of energy. For power system to be sustainable and resilient, a just energy transition is needed that aims at decarbonization while considering the impacts such a transition will have on economic and social structures.

Against the background of a global push towards net-zero, local thought leaders will take stock and discuss the progress made to date in Southeast Asian largest countries, and – joined by international experts – discuss potential triggers to accelerate a just energy transition.
