The energy demand in the SEA region is among the fastest growing in the world. Industrialisation, development and electrification help eradicate poverty and foster a large emerging middle class. This positive trend comes however with energy challenges – supply, local pollution and climate change. How do we combine continued growth in Asia with a sustainable energy future?

Realistically, fossil fuels will continue to be a significant component of the SEA energy mix, at least in the medium term. At the same time, most agree that the mix needs to evolve towards a larger share for renewables, and that we can use energy a lot more efficiently.

The aim of this seminar is to identify which role Nordic energy solutions and experiences can play in fuelling Asia’s future growth. We will highlight Nordic technology solutions in oil and gas, wind, solar and energy storage – and discuss the technologies that will allow the transition to a new and largely decarbonised power system.

Moreover - we would like to facilitate a frank discussion among representatives of the oil and gas industry and proponents of renewable energy, with the view to arrive at a realistic assessment of the roles of fossil fuels and renewables going forward.

The target audience for this seminar is industry and government representatives in the energy sector. Representatives of national energy administrations from the region, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, China and the Philippines, will participate as part of the Third Country Training Program jointly organized by Singapore MFA and the Royal Norwegian Embassy.

The Nordic region is known for its strong welfare models, viable eco-systems, good business climate and a focus on green growth. In response to increasing populations and climate change, a firm focus on circular economy and sustainable use of resources has led the Nordic countries to set ambitious goals towards decarbonising their energy systems by 2050.  Jointly, the region generates close to 70 percent of its electricity from renewable sources.
