Bringing together the region's leaders from across the energy and natural resources value chain

Across Asia, countries are prioritising energy security over the energy transition, leading to increased demand for oil, gas and coal and subsequently higher carbon emissions. If the energy transition in Asia is to succeed, governments, energy companies and investors need to explore new strategies such as securing low-carbon gas, innovative financing mechanisms for clean energy, and developing localised supply chains for the raw materials crucial to a clean energy future.

Now in its 6th year, Wood Mackenzie’s Energy & Natural Resources Summit APAC is the flagship event for the region and brings together leaders from across the energy and natural resources value chain. Join us on 9th May at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore to hear from Wood Mackenzie’s expert analysts and speakers from top renewable developers and utilities, transmission operators, energy regulatory bodies, investment entities, and technology providers.

  • A renewable future: can Asian economies deliver on their solar and wind potential – and at what cost?
  • The resurgence in APAC upstream investment: balancing growth with sustainability
  • Building CCS at scale: what more is needed to bring carbon capture into the mainstream?
  • Asian gas/LNG demand: is the strong growth outlook as certain as many believe?
  • Crunch time for metals: can Asia secure the critical minerals it needs to decarbonise?
