Renewables will continue to play a primary role in the clean energy transition, especially in Asia Pacific. Collaboration between stakeholders will be key in accelerating the deployment of renewables and in driving investment opportunities for clean energy projects. New technologies in this space will need to be supported by policies for a smoother integration of renewables into the energy system.

The SIEW Energy Insights Webinar, held on 24 August in partnership with the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), gathered expert speakers to discuss the role of renewables in the latest energy transition, and ways to accelerate clean energy adoption through partnership and innovation.
