Despite the rise of leading manufacturers of clean technology products, East Asian markets, such as the South Korea and Taiwanese markets, have historically been the lowest users of green energy among developed countries. Yet this year has   seen a huge shift – nations unveiling net zero carbon commitments, interest in market reform, green growth strategies and attracting record-breaking investments that rival seasoned renewable energy market leaders, such as China. 

Is East Asia realizing it’s potential to be a global clean energy powerhouse?  

This event will cover: 

  • The direction and pace of East Asia’s energy transition and regional investment trends 

  • Leaders’ plans to turn climate pledges into energy sector action 

  • The continued need to make private investment easier – through improved, stable regulatory frameworks 

  • The importance of renewables for countries remaining competitive, stimulating economic growth and phasing out coal 

  • The role of business, regional governments and wider society
