On 24 May, Asia House, together with the Danish Embassy in Singapore and CLEAN, held a roundtable discussion with speaker Jonathan Goh Kok Chye, Director for External Relations at the Energy Market Authority of Singapore (EMA).
ASEAN has implemented the ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation 2016-2025 to enhance energy connectivity and market integration to achieve energy security, accessibility, affordability and sustainability for all.
In particular, ASEAN aims to reduce energy intensity by 20 % in 2020 based on 2005 levels and increase renewable energy components to 23 % by 2025. This roundtable will discuss the efforts and challenges encountered by ASEAN and Singapore towards these outcomes. Hence the roundtable will be a unique opportunity for Danish companies to discuss in detail the energy market not only in Singapore, but in the whole region of ASEAN.
It was clear from the discussion that there are great opportunities for Danish expertice, especially in areas such as Smart Energy and Energy Efficiency.
