Renewable Energy: The Increasing Viability in Asia

Many countries in Asia made significant commitments under the Paris Agreement. However, we have seen government policy vacillate between support for low carbon projects and appeasement of constituents through continued reliance on fossil fuels to keep costs low, maintain stability of supply, and support indigenous coal industries. Join us for an interactive panel to discuss renewable energy in Asia, its increasing economic viability and where and how projects are progressing and securing finance. 

****PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE AMENDED START TIME.****
