A major shift is underway in global energy markets. Energy transition has dominated the conversation across the energy and trading value chain and continues to command attention.

A perfect storm has developed where in the race to tackle climate change, dozens of the world’s biggest economies have adopted targets for net-zero emissions by 2050 and are cutting fossil fuels and boosting clean energies. Big investment trends are now pointing to enabling technologies for alternative fuels to do the heavy lifting for the next stage of the transition. Meanwhile, carbon prices are soaring, and energy companies are recalibrating their strategies and business models for a net-zero world with a new sense of urgency.

Energy companies today stand at the precipice of a massive transformation and they need to navigate the most disruptive period in modern history, deliver upon their net-zero goals and drive towards a sustainable low carbon energy future.

Are you ready for this shift?

On March 30-31, the Asia Energy Transition Conference will virtually host leading energy companies in the region to discuss the top challenges and risk response strategies to address the rapid pace and scale of the energy transition. 

Key program topics:
- The roles conventional and new energy sources will play in advancing the energy transition
- How will companies develop a business model by turning the climate rhetoric into a business strategy?
- Leveraging voluntary carbon markets and pricing for an emissions reduction strategy
- New technologies and market disrupters for scale and commercialization of clean energy
- Private-public sector cooperation on the path towards a net-zero carbon circular economy
- The race for decarbonization: finding pockets of opportunities and pre-empting the challenges in Asian energy markets

Energy transition will demand rapid decarbonization, decentralization, and digitalization of energy production, supply, and consumption. Register and don’t miss out on perspectives from a lineup of low carbon and clean energy producers, regulators, financial institutions, utilities, and industry analysts from across the region and beyond on the latest approaches to navigate this rapidly shifting landscape.

Registration closes March 28, 5pm SGT.
