SINGAPORE, May 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Energy Market Authority (EMA) today unveiled "A Resilient and Sustainable Energy Future" as the theme for the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) 2022.
The theme reflects how the global energy community has accelerated the pursuit of a greener future. Following the 26th COP26 last year, there is strong momentum for countries to do more to decarbonise their economies and ride the green wave to reduce emissions. Recent developments have shown how sensitive energy markets are to geopolitical events, pushing energy security to the forefront of the global agenda.
Against this backdrop, SIEW 2022 will discuss policies, frameworks, and best practices to accelerate the transition to a more resilient, greener and more inclusive energy future. It will also examine the opportunities and challenges as the region scales up investments and regional connectivity for a green economy.
The announcement was made at the Global Launch featuring speakers from the International Energy Agency (IEA), International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Siemens Energy, Sembcorp Industries and SMBC. It also saw the launch of the IEA's Southeast Asia Energy Outlook 2022 report, and the IRENA's World Energy Transition Outlook report.
Highlights at SIEW 2022
SIEW 2022 marks the 15th edition as Asia's premier energy event. To commemorate this milestone, SIEW is launching a new podcast series, 'SIEWCast'.
