SINGAPORE, Sept. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Policymakers, energy experts, business leaders, academics and scientists from major corporations, energy, finance and utilities will congregate online and in-person at Economist Impact‘s Future of Energy Week from September 19th ÔÇô 21st 2022.

85% of energy used in the Asia-Pacific comes from fossil fuels, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency. Immediate action to reduce this is required. The public and private sectors will need to do much to accelerate the move to renewable sources if the region is to meet targets, cut emissions and maintain sustainable economic growth. What does this mean for organisations, consumers, and investors in the region? Find out if emissions targets translate into tangible roadmaps for organisations to follow. Explore how countries in other regions will follow suit and what measures are needed to ensure the energy transition is fair.

Economist Impact’s┬áhybrid event will gather policymakers, energy experts, business leaders, academics and scientists to discuss the status and effects of the energy transition in the Asia-Pacific, along with the region’s role in defining the pace and scale of this global transformation.

Chaired by The Economist Group’s editors, the event features senior expert speakers including:

  • Roberto Cingolani, Minister, Ecological Transition, Italy
