  • Energy Industry Reforms: Latin American nations are looking at expediting regulatory processes for battery energy storage, while addressing regulatory gaps to foster growth. In Europe, initiatives like Fit for 55 and REPowerEU are prioritizing security of supply and renewable energy targets.

What industry and regulatory best practices is your company adopting to drive energy transition?

  • Continued Reliance on Coal: Despite aspirations for renewable energy, Southeast Asia’s heavy dependence on coal persists due to entrenched interests and economic needs, making a rapid transition challenging.

How is your organization leveraging strategic initiatives to tackle challenges and achieve sustainability goals?

  • Rising Demand for Gas: With declining domestic gas production, Southeast Asian nations are shifting from being exporters to importers, creating trade opportunities and increasing reliance on liquefied natural gas(LNG) to meet growing energy demands.

Is your company leveraging strategic partnerships with key geographies to gain a competitive edge in the industry?

  • Renewable Energy Growth and Implementation: While there’s significant growth potential for renewables in Asia Pacific, especially in solar and wind, actual implementation is facing hurdles such as slow construction rates and regulatory complexities.

How is your organization leveraging growth opportunities in the renewable energy space?

  • Investments in Transmission Grid: Prioritizing simultaneous transmission grid development alongside capacity expansion is essential to avoid undermining investments in renewable energy initiatives.

Is your board devising the right investment strategies to capitalize on the shifting dynamics in the energy landscape?

“Investments in transmission grids must align with the rapid development of solar and offshore wind projects, a crucial imperative as we advance into 2024. Regulatory hurdles loom large, necessitating federal intervention for streamlined regulations to drive progress effectively. Without this alignment, even substantial investments risk failing to catalyze the necessary infrastructure development in the year ahead.”
