Thank you for joining us at the SIEW 2019 Global Launch!
“Accelerating Energy Transformation” was announced as the theme of this year’s SIEW by Ngiam Shih Chun, Chief Executive of the Energy Market Authority of Singapore. It highlights the need to transform our energy ambitions into actionable solutions, as 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 be driven by the 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 toward a more sustainable energy future.
