Sustainable Energy & Technology Asia 2016

March 23 to 25, 2016 - Bangkok, Thailand

The Sustainable Energy & Technology Asia exhibition and conference has been developed specifically for international, governmental, and industry discussions and collaboration on developing sustainable energy policies for the region’s future economic development.

The theme of this inaugural event is Securing Asia’s Energy Future. With Asia’s booming demand for energy, the region’s energy industries have become the focus for raising environmental concerns. Investment and expansion of the alternative and renewable energy sector needs to be the primary source of future energy demands.

Sustainable Energy & Technology Asia is set to become the leading annual meeting place for the energy industry to discuss the latest sustainable energy issues and industry challenges, as well as highlight the latest technologies and solutions available to meet these challenges.

For any company involved in the power industry, from equipment manufacturer and product supply to service or solutions provider, SETA 2016 is the premier marketing platform to reach and meet key decision makers and influencers and the opportunity to showcase your products/services to a key industry professionals.

Thailand has the second highest primary energy demand in the ASEAN region and energy consumption is set to jump by 75% over the coming two decades as the economy expands and a more affluent society takes to the roads in increasing numbers.

The Alternative Energy Development Plan states 25% of energy consumption needs to come from alternative energy sources by 2021, placing increased pressure of the development of credible policies and incentives to ensure targets are met.

These challenges are not unique to Thailand, which has seen energy demand in Southeast Asia expand two-and-a- half-times since 1990. Malaysia has seen an increase in energy consumption of more than 20% in recent years, Cambodia and Myanmar over 10%, and Indonesia and Vietnam nearly 10%.

Energy policy across Southeast Asia varies considerably, reflecting differences in political direction, economic development, and natural resource endowments.

Despite investment in the ASEAN Power Grid and Trans-ASEAN Gas Pipeline Project, benefits of increased market competition, lowered consumer prices, and increased energy security have not materialised. Additional action is required to ensure the lights stay on, the regions economies are able to flourish, whilst ensuring the ever increasing demand for energy remains affordable.

Technologies will become the main driver in enabling countries, government, the utilities, companies, and consumers in achieving these goals, for keeping costs down and energy prices under control.

Governments, energy companies, and the transport sector — from mass transport to motor vehicle manufacturers — need to work harder toward developing plans and implementing technologies to deliver a greener, more efficient, and more sustainable energy future.
