Pacific Energy Forum
The Asia-Pacific is the most economically dynamic region in the world and sits at the forefront of global efforts to effectively meet growing energy needs and combat climate change. World energy markets have undergone a seismic shift in the past ten years, driven by Asia’s rising demand and the commercial viability of new energy supplies. Meanwhile, technology has introduced new advances in resource utilization and mechanisms to increase energy efficiency.
Broad and fundamental global energy shifts, along with rapidly evolving technologies and capabilities, suggest that Asia and North America need to fundamentally reconsider their current energy relationship. Adjustments are vital across the spectrum of potential trade and investment opportunities. These changes demand not only policy adjustments but a shift in world view and the development of new, more integrated and competitive energy markets.
