Pacific Energy Summit
As economies in the Asia-Pacific region continue to grow at astonishing rates, energy demand is increasing to sustain economic prosperity. Launched in 2009, NBR’s annual Pacific Energy Summit is an invitation-only event that convenes leaders from government, business, and research to explore innovative solutions to the dual challenges of rising energy demand and climate change. By bridging the commercial, public, and nonprofit sectors, the Summit informs policy and inspires collaboration to help support sustainable economic development.
