Pacific Energy Summit
By bridging the commercial, public, and nonprofit sectors, the Summit informs policy and inspires collaboration to help support sustainable economic development. Each year, the Summit is held in a different location across the Asia-Pacific, spreading the influence of the program widely and creating a broader network with each iteration.
As economies in the Asia-Pacific region continue to grow at astonishing rates, energy demand is increasing to sustain economic prosperity. The urgency of meeting this energy demand while safeguarding the environment demands cooperation and collaboration across nations, sectors and research areas. 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 a changing climate.
THE NEXT PHASE OF THE ASIA PACIFIC'S ENERGY REVOLUTION
December 14, 2016 | Washington, D.C.
On Wednesday, December 14, NBR will convene a high-level expert discussion with Mikkal Herberg (NBR), Fei Yu (Asian Development Bank), and Younkyoo Kim (Hanyang University). This on-the-record event will examine how a range of factors—including lower oil prices, efforts to accelerate lower carbon transitions, regional geopolitics, and Paris Climate Accord commitments—will shape energy security outlooks in the Asia-Pacific.
It will also feature timely discussion of the implications of the U.S. leadership transition for U.S.-Asia energy ties. The event will serve as the launch of NBR’s 2016 Pacific Energy Summit report, "Sustainable Futures: Energy and Environmental Security in Times of Transition." RSVP here.
