Energy Transition – Navigating Change in Singapore

The 10th Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) held at the end of October 2017 by the Energy Market Authority (EMA) attracted over 10,000 energy executives to discuss a range of topics covering the energy transition - Oil, Gas, LNG, Electricity, Sustainable, Distributed Energy, Digitisation and Advanced Analytics.

At this breakfast panel, we reviewed the key themes emerging from the SIEW together with senior sector leaders of the industry, finance, government and NGOs. Our esteemed panel included senior representatives from Singapore’s regulator, major oil companies, electricity, engineering society and the sustainable energy and energy finance sectors.
 
Attendees heard of local and regional impacts affecting their roles in Singapore in 2018, with topics spanning investment, finance, technology and innovation. Panellists also considered how regulation is changing the status quo for a Singapore-based business. Ultimately, this event helped identify new connections and opportunities for those who service the energy value chain.
 
Attended by over ninety members and guests, this session was planned as a post-SIEW event to review key themes and look ahead (near and medium term) at the prospects for the sector in 2018 and beyond.
