The Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) is an annual platform for energy professionals, policymakers and commentators to discuss and share best practices and solutions within the global energy space.
The appetite for economic development and urban progress, coupled with climate change concerns and the development of more efficient energy technologies, is driving change among consumers and energy industries.
SIEW aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas and discussions on pertinent energy-related issues, while simultaneously meeting the strategic objectives of Singapore’s commitment to becoming a global leader among energy companies converging on the event, as well as to provide a platform to showcase innovative products and solutions in the energy marketplace.
First held in 2008, SIEW is organised by the Singapore Energy Market Authority (EMA), a statutory board formed in 2001 under the aegis of the Ministry of Trade and Industry. EMA is tasked to promote effective competition in the energy market, ensure a reliable and secure energy supply, and develop a dynamic energy sector in Singapore.
SIEW Theme: Rethinking Energy; Navigating Change
The global economy is set to pick up pace, but growth will remain uneven. Demand-supply imbalances continue to impact oil and gas prices, but the sustained decline in upstream investments could lead to future price adjustments. At the same time, renewables continue to gain momentum as technology improves and prices fall. Weak climate change commitments could hold back international efforts to build a sustainable energy future. Against this backdrop, there is a need for energy players to stay nimble, navigate these challenges, and seize opportunities in this evolving energy landscape.
