Singapore-International Energy Agency (IEA) Forum

ORGANISER Energy Market Authority & International Energy Agency
DATE 24 October 2023
TIME 10:15 – 12:30 hrs (GMT +8)
VENUE Level 4, Melati Ballroom, 4001, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

In 2022, the IEA published an updated roadmap to Net Zero Emissions by 2050, which sets out a global pathway for the global energy sector to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Over the past year, the global energy landscape has continued to evolve rapidly. To achieve net zero emissions, the global energy mix must undergo a profound transformation as low-emission sources ramp up dramatically. Electricity transmission and distribution grids expand to meet the growing demands of electrification, connect new renewable energy projects, and reinforce systems that need to adapt to changing system dynamics. Close to 70% of global grid investments to 2030 was expected to be directed to distribution grids, with the aim of expanding, strengthening and digitalising networks.

Against this backdrop, the Singapore-IEA Forum will discuss actionable pathways towards delivering on our collective net zero commitments.
