Asia House in Copenhagen, the Embassy of Denmark in Singapore and Clean – Innovating Green Solutions on 24 May presented a roundtable discussion regarding Singapore’s energy market, connecting to the Nordic Clean Energy Week in Copenhagen. Jonathan Goh, Director for External Relations of Energy Market Authority participated as speaker.
Asean has implemented the Asean Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation 2016-2025 to enhance energy connectivity and market integration to achieve energy security, accessibility, affordability and sustainability for all.
In particular, the region aims to reduce energy intensity by 20 % in 2020 based on 2005 levels and increase renewable energy components to 23 % by 2025. This roundtable discussed the efforts and challenges encountered by ASEAN and Singapore towards these outcomes. The roundtable offered a unique opportunity for Danish companies to discuss in detail the energy market not only in Singapore, but in the whole region of Asean.
It was clear from the discussion that there are great opportunities for Danish expertise, especially in areas such as Smart Energy and Energy Efficiency, reported Asia House.
