Singapore Energy Summit

ORGANISER Energy Market Authority
DATE 29 October 2019
VENUE Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands Singapore

The Singapore Energy Summit (SES) is a platform for strategic panel discussions on key energy issues. Featuring energy ministers and industry CEOs, the SES provides SIEW delegates with strategic insights into the current developments in the global energy landscape and how energy stakeholders could address the challenges and opportunities ahead.

SIEW 2019 Theme: Accelerating Energy Transformation

The energy landscape continues to experience major shifts. Global energy demand is expanding, and this is especially pronounced in Asia. The growth in energy demand will also be driven by electrification of transportation, industries and buildings. This demand has been supported by increased supply of oil and gas, lowered cost of renewables and technological advancements in energy storage. However, there remain concerns over meeting climate change commitments, even as renewable energy investments hit record highs. Against this backdrop, SIEW will provide a platform for global energy stakeholders to deliberate on and accelerate the transformation towards a more sustainable energy future.
