The Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) is Singapore’s flagship energy event. It is an annual platform for energy professionals, policymakers and commentators worldwide to share best practices, network, and exchange ideas shaping the energy business landscape. Anchor events during SIEW include: Singapore Energy Lecture, SIEW Opening Keynote Address and Singapore Energy Summit, which feature high level keynotes and panel discussions on energy issues impacting Asia.
The 15th edition of SIEW is themed “A Resilient and Sustainable Energy Future”. The theme reflects how the global energy community has accelerated the pursuit of a greener future. Following the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) last year, there is strong momentum for countries to do more to decarbonize their economies and ride the green wave to reduce emissions. Recent events have also shown how sensitive energy markets are to geopolitical events, pushing energy security to the forefront of the global agenda. Asia, which accounts for almost half of the global energy demand, faces urgency to accelerate the deployment of renewables, fortify grid infrastructure, strengthen supply chain resilience of key fuels and develop regional interconnections to enhance security while keeping electricity accessible and affordable. Massive investments into regional grid connections, green; infrastructure, electrification, green financing, technologies and supply chains for hydrogen and carbon capture utilization, and storage would be needed to support the clean energy transition.
Oliver Wyman is proud to be a Singapore Energy Summit (SES) panel sponsor.
