2014 Pacific Energy Summit
On June 30-July 1, 2014, the Pacific Energy Summit convened key stakeholders from around the world in Seoul, South Korea, to discuss the market trends, geopolitical developments, policy decisions, and technological innovations that will play a critical role in determining the energy and environmental outlook for the Asia-Pacific.
The 2014 Pacific Energy Summit was brought to Seoul by the Republic of Korea Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), the Korea Energy Economics Institute (KEEI), and The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR).
This invitation-only event took place over two days in an interactive forum where high-level delegates explored what is needed to identify opportunities for stakeholders to pursue complementary energy and environmental strategies and work towards achieving the goal of a cleaner and more abundant energy future. While each country’s energy needs and natural endowments are unique, all are profoundly affected by developments in key consuming and producing nations, domestic and international politics, and the pace and scale of technological change.
