Description

This two-day international conference in Bangkok is being jointly organized by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Ministry of Energy of the Kingdom of Thailand. The conference will focus on energy technologies, markets, sustainability, finance and regulatory issues, covering the areas where the most serious obstacles to progress lie and where the most important decisions are awaited. The conference will also showcase global innovative best practices in technology, finance and policy frameworks, and their potential in Thailand.

Conference vision

The conference will bring together best practice and experience from Thailand and across the Asia-Pacific region to encourage a dynamic discussion about the design and development of Thailand’s power sector. The conference will explore how utilities are approaching three key business areas that will be critical to a successful utility business model for the future: transport and mobility; the scale-up of renewable energy; and energy efficiency and digitalization.

Conference structure

The conference will have an opening plenary on Day 1 and a closing plenary on Day 2. The core of the conference will comprise three parallel tracks, covering three areas of keen interest for Thailand’s electric utilities:

  • Utilities, mobility, and transportation
  • Utilities and renewable energy
  • Digitalization and energy efficiency

Each of the three tracks will have sessions covering the following topics:

  • Technology and market potential
  • Business models and innovations
  • International experience and good practices
  • Policy and regulatory challenges and opportunities
  • Scaling up financing

Target participants

The conference is expected to attract about 200 delegates from Thai government, private sector, academia, and civil society, as well regional and international experts who will share their experience in designing clean energy solutions that will help drive the transition toward a sustainable, low-carbon energy system.
