Strategic Summit

Robin Kennish, Managing Partner, Renewables & Climate Change Services

17th May | 16:30-17:15 Renewables Leaders Panel Moderator

Accelerating Investment in Renewable Project Development

As Asia addresses net-zero commitments, the imperative to expand the renewable sector will become critical. Innovative funding mechanisms will be needed along with policy and regulatory measures to manage risk, drive investment and encourage the formation of public-private partnerships in new energy technologies and infrastructure. Investors will need to be galvanised to consider opportunities, including renewable power generation, rapid electrification, infrastructure legacy upgrades, and new development in energy storage and transportation. This will encourage intra-regional partnership opportunities such as electricity export and carbon credit trading.

Enhancing Data Center Sustainability and Resilience with Innovative Energy Solutions

The data center sector is one of Southeast Asia’s fastest growing industries, the backbone of its fast-expanding internet economy and a growing center of energy demand. To ensure the sustainability of the region and create a robust backup power system, the operations of its data centers will need to become increasingly powered by renewables, embrace more energy efficiency, and integrate circular energy systems.
