With growing shares of ever cheaper variable renewable energy (VRE), the power sector and its flexibility have become key issue in energy planning and policy considerations in Asia. The current trend towards electrifying transport and industry also represents a unique opportunity for clean energy transition across sectors. This, along with the key resources such as hydrogen, this trends helps integrate ever greater shares of VRE and accelerate the decarbonisation of the wider energy system.

As part of the Singapore International Energy Week, Agora Energiewende will host a roundtable of think tanks to discuss opportunities for major Southeast Asian economies to embark on a road to decarbonisation of the power and wider energy systems, led by electrification.

The first part sets the scene with insights from current energy policy and trend in the countries and recent analytical work on low carbon pathways presented by think tanks from Vietnam, The Philippines, and Thailand.

The second part will look to the future, with long-term energy perspectives presented by an independent think tank and technology experts. Agora Energiewende will also provide insights into the debate on hydrogen for future global energy systems, based on the accelerating debate in Europe and its impact on the region.
