Rebooting Asia’s Energy Transition

The Asia Pacific energy transition is not going to plan. Across the region, countries are locking in new fossil fuel supply to boost energy security. With demand for oil, gas and coal resilient and carbon emissions rising, there is a strong case to reboot net zero ambitions. Only with fresh thinking can governments, companies and investors revitalise the goal of decarbonising conventional energy supply, boost investment in clean energy technologies and critical minerals and implement supportive carbon policies.

Join Wood Mackenzie expert analysts and leaders from across the industry on 9 May for the 6th annual edition of the Energy & Natural Resources Summit: APAC 2024 at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore to hear how Asia can reboot its energy transition and pave the way to a more sustainable future. Hear from speakers representing top oil and gas companies, utilities and renewable developers, financial institutions and metals and mining corporates.

  • 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?
  • Rise of the consumer: are Asia’s energy end-users ready for a low-carbon future?
