2021 Pacific Energy Summit Virtual Series
The Indo-Pacific has become the center for global energy demand and is on track to account for approximately two-thirds of total demand increase over the next two decades. Driven by both population and economic growth, rising energy consumption and carbon emissions have put a spotlight on the need to meet demand in a secure and sustainable way.
Due to travel restrictions, this year’s Pacific Energy Summit will consist of a series of virtual events. The 2021 Summit Series will focus on the regional alliances and public-private partnerships central to building stronger collaboration and regional energy security between the United States and the Indo-Pacific. This year’s program will feature several in-depth and candid conversations with experts and policymakers from key U.S. partners including, Japan, India, Indonesia, and South Korea, as well as private sector representatives who are shaping regional energy transitions. These off-the-record discussions will provide an exclusive opportunity to engage substantively with leaders on best practices thus far, how to navigate disruptions to energy systems, and the future of regional energy cooperation in the Indo-Pacific.
This year’s Pacific Energy Summit virtual invitation-only events will feature a series of in-depth conversations between a moderator and featured keynote speaker from Japan, South Korea, India, and Indonesia. It will also feature a panel of leading energy industry representatives to discuss the role for public-private partnerships in clean energy transitions.
