Spotlight | Asian Energy Ministerial: Balancing energy security and transition?
Asia is the world’s fastest growing region: in GDP, energy demand and GHG emissions. The thirst for energy to support economic growth is inexorable. Aligning that growth with climate targets is the world’s concern—redressing climate change is not possible without Asia’s deployment of renewable energies and carbon capture technologies. How are energy ministers leading this charge to meet energy demand and reduce emissions? What role does innovation play in this quest? Where will the capital come from, and at what cost?
