BACKGROUND

With the greatest vitality and development potential in the world, Asia boasts a huge economic volume, rich natural resources, and strong complementarities between industries and trade among different countries. However, troubling issues like widening development gap among various countries and sky-rocketing energy consumption have pose enormous challenges for Asia in terms of climate disasters and air pollution. To achieve sustainable regional development, strengthening energy infrastructure interconnection will be essential, apart from current efforts on speeding up energy transition and clean energy development, in a bid to facilitate industrial upgrading and regional integration.

GOAL

To further pool together wisdom and strength aimed at boosting Asia’s economic and social development in a clean and green way, the 2020 GEI Conference (Asian Energy and Power Conference) will be convened to provide a platform of cooperation for energy planning and implementation, technology demonstration and project promotion, and promote practical cooperation in energy projects as well as scientific and technological development in the context of GEI.

TOPICS

The conference will focus on clean energy and Asia’s transformation and development, cross-border and cross-regional cooperation, project investment and financing, scientific and technological innovation, climate change, electricity-carbon market and low-carbon transition in Asia, among other issues. A series of reports including development and investment of large-scale clean energy bases, and regional energy interconnection planning research will be released.
